Without context, it might have been a little odd. When the third period of tonight’s game ended with the score tied up at one apiece, the Senators bench celebrated.
Of course, we all know what the context of that was - the Sens have clinched a playoff spot!
Now the team can turn it’s attention to securing a divisional spot, and then home ice - picking up the second point tonight helped with that.
The earliest we could know who the Sens will face in the first round is Saturday night.
