Hey all! A quick and dirty set of Ottawa Senators headlines coming your way:

  • For those of you who missed it, the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs schedule has been released. The Senators' first game is Wednesday at 7:00pm. (NHL)
  • The games will be on CBC and called by Bob Cole, Garry Galley, and Elliotte Friedman (Mendes)
  • Fanhouse has a nice piece up on the big series matchup: Sidney Crosby vs. Anton Volchenkov and Chris Phillips (Fanhouse)
  • The Penguins' website has a nice series preview as well. (Penguins)
  • The Senators players -- particularly the rookies -- are energized for the playoffs. In case you're wondering why Matt Carkner has had a shaved head the last few games, he got Erik Karlsson to give him a "playoff cut" once they clinched their spot. (Gazette)
  • Our friend Meaghan puts up her Ottawa Senators playoff preview post, which is a good read. (Sens at Land's End)
  • We'll be compiling playoff predictions as much as we can, but here it starts: Ray Ferrarro says Penguins in 6. (TSN)
