The Ottawa Senators walked away with bragging rights to one of the ugliest series in recent NHL history.
Ottawa steamrolled into the conference semifinals with a 6-1 beatdown over Montreal on Thursday.
Despite the bad blood that consistently bubbled over, Montreal was not on Ottawa’s level.
The Canadiens were taken down in five games after being outgunned a cumulative total of 20-9.
Montreal lost its starting goaltender Carey Price and was forced to call upon Peter Budaj to secure their net and he simply was not up to the task.
Ottawa became the first team to advance in the East and did so as the No. 7 seed.
Montreal did not go down without a fight.
Three goals were scored off the power play as Montreal kept sending players to the penalty box.
Before it was over with, gross misconduct penalties were dealt to Conacher and Montreal’s Gabriel Dumont and Michael Bluden.
