The higher seed and clear favourite has won every time these two teams have met in the playoffs. But this go around I don't think the Senators pulling off the upset would that surprising. The caveat to that statement is Spezza has to return at some point and be impactable, which is a pretty sizeable caveat but considering how spaced out the schedule is, I think there's good reason to believe it could happen. Go SNES.
By possession these two teams were very close for much of the season. Ottawa's big dip...
