Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- In the end, the Ottawa Senators were simply out-classed by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Led by James Neal's hat-trick, Pittsburgh successfully defended home-ice in game five and took care of Ottawa in a relatively quick second-round series. Ottawa fought, and fought, and fought in this series. But sometimes, the talent disparity is just too severe to...

Daniel Alfredsson Says ‘Probably Not’ Comments Taken Out of Context Somewhat

Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson isn’t giving up hope just yet, but he certainly knows it won’t be tough for his team to come back in their series with the Penguins. Alfredsson made news following Game 4 on Wednesday night when he replied with “probably not” after being asked whether or not he thought the Senators could come back and win after being down 3-1 with a 7-3...

Coach’s Corner Last Night Plus Senators/Penguins

Ottawa Senators season all but over

The Ottawa Senators got lucky to win Game 3 of the best-of-seven series with the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 in double overtime after their goalie Craig Anderson put on a show facing 50 shots and still winning the game. In Wednesday night's Game 4, the team representing Canada's capital failed to capitalize on the momentum they had from such an inspiring performance. The Pittsburgh...

Daniel Alfredsson's post-game comments decidedly inappropriate

Wow. This is more than a little awkward. As a hockey player and as a captain, I always assumed it would be impossible to criticize Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson. He's the prototypical perfect hockey player, a great team guy... and he just completely threw his whole squad under the bus. When asked in a media scrum after the Senators' 7-3 loss to the Pittsburgh...

TiqIQ Ticket Preview: Senators vs. Penguins

By Matthew Feuerman of TiqIQ, Following a 7-3 loss at the hands (or should we say flippers) of the Pittsburgh Penguins Wednesday night, the Ottawa Senators are on their last leg, down 3-1 to arguably the NHL’s top team. Has the Senators’ luck run out, or did they simply run into an unstoppable force they couldn’t overpower with grit, hustle and focus, similar to how...

Pens Take Care Of Sens: Wait For Bruins-Rangers

((HT: NHL/NBCSN)) With Tomas Vokoun in goal, there has been a feeling that the Pittsburgh Penguins would make a point- to outscore everyone if they needed to for a win, to protect their back-up goaltender, and to tell their starting goaltender, Marc-Andre Fleury, that all you have to be is hot to make a run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs... It takes effort from everyone every...

Penguins Advance To Eastern Conference Finals

Senators Head Coach Paul MacLean’s Quickest Press Conference (VIDEO)

As sports fans we all love to see a player or coach’s obnoxious post game interview. We all have the Jim Mora “Playoffs!?!” sound bite in our heads every time we hear the word playoffs.  There are over the top rants and then there are ones that are justified. Last night’s post game conference was justified. Ottawa Senators head coach Paul MacLean was frustrated with after...

Scratch his back with a hacksaw:  Penguins broadcaster Mike Lange remains an iconic hockey voice

From Allen Panzeri of the Ottawa Citizen: Honoured by the Hockey Hall of Fame with the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award in 2001, Lange is an icon in the Steel City, following in the big footprints of Bob Prince, who was the voice of the Pirates for 28 years, and Myron Cope, the colour commentator on Steelers’ radio broadcasts for 25 years.

Ottawa Senators Head Coach Paul MacLean Gives Best News Conference Ever

Let me qualify what I mean by the best news conference ever. It wasn't a ridiculous kind of conference where someone starting shouting he was a man or about the playoffs or any of a number of epic rants that we've enjoyed over the years. No, this is one that if I was a player for this team or a fan I'd be so pumped up for the next game. Imagine the way you feel every...

Senators-Penguins Preview

Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson isn't quite ready for the traditional season-ending handshake.
