While discussing his team's road to the playoffs, Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk tells Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun this about their match-up against the Rangers...

"I like the fact we're playing the Rangers. I'm looking forward to it. I think it's going to be a great series. There's other teams I'd rather not be playing, but it should be an exciting series...

"The one thing we do know is we can win this (series). It's ours to win..."

...wow, the Senators have been borderline cocky this week talking about how they can beat the Rangers. Let's hope the Rangers communications department has been passing along all these quotes to Torts and the players.

...one thing I know about this Rangers team is that they'll do all their talking on the ice starting Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.

...i've never really had an opinion on the Senators, but I'm really starting to hate them.

At least one Senator player isn't disrespecting the Rangers, as Jason Spezza said this about the Blueshirts (via Ottawa Citizen)...

"They're a team we've looked at all year and tried to play similar to, because we respect them and think they play the game the right way."

Spezza also mentioned that Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh are one of the best shutdown pairs in the league
