Silver Nuggets: Sens face Pens in first round

Here are your Senators-related headlines for today:

  • After last night's Devils win and Penguins loss, the Ottawa Senators will face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the third time in four years. (Citizen)
  • Milks looks at last night's Alfie celebration and the upcoming series against the Pens. (Black Aces)
  • Buffalo media with a nice piece on the Alfie-fest last night, including some comments from Patrick Lalime and Lindy Ruff. (Buffalo News)
  • Bobby Butler was named to the East First Team All-American, while Patrick Wiercioch was named to the West First Team All-American (FreeP)
  • Hockey's Future has a nice interview up with prospect Chris Wideman, where he raves about Senators Training Camp and the attention the team gives to prospects even when they're away at college. (Hockey's Future)
  • Prospect Robin Lehner is getting his feet wet in the AHL. He did poorly in his first game (letting in 5 goals on 27 shots), but great in his second (only a single goal on 32 shots). (Sharp)
  • For those unaware, all playoff spots are now locked up except for one spot in the East, which will go to the winner of the Rangers/Flyers game at 3:00pm EST. Should be a good battle.
  • Some unfortunate news from last night's game: Drew Stafford has a concussion after that crushing (but clean) hit from Andy Sutton. Hopefully Stafford has a quick recovery. (Sabres Edge)
