Senators to play Rangers in Eastern Conference Quarter Final

For the last few weeks (or maybe months) it's looked like an inevitability that the Ottawa Senators would face-off against the Boston Bruins in the first round of the 2012 playoffs, but with an odd combination of results today they were bumped to eighth place in the Eastern Conference and will take on the President's Cup Trophy-winning top team in the Eastern Conference, the New York Rangers. The playoff schedule will be released on Sunday at 1 p.m.

The Senators loss to the New Jersey Devils combined with the Washington Capitals' 4-1 win over the Rangers plus the Florida Panthers' 4-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes are what bumped Ottawa to eighth.

We'll have more coverage of the series in the upcoming days, but at first glance it looks like the Sens match up better with the Rangers than the Bruins--Ottawa was 3-1 against New York this season, but 1-5 against the Bruins.

Ottawa and New York have never met in the playoffs before.
