After a first-round victory over the high-flying Penguins, do the Senators stand a chance at a long playoff run?
Does the team have a shot at reaching the Stanley Cup Finals?
Go Sens Go!!!!!!!!

Don't make any predictions, just enjoy it as it happens and I hope your team goes a long way.
Take one game at a time.

As for the conference finals, if the Sens were to make it they would've had to play New York, meaning Buffalo played Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay is the only low seed that I feel could give Buffalo a run for their money, and if Buffalo played like they did in the first round, Tampa could force them to a game 7. To which Buffalo would squeeze out a slim win. A Buffalo-Ottawa finals would be interesting and knowing how Ottawa has beaten Buffalo many times this season and the Sabres coming off a long grueling 7 game series will fall in 6.
Therefore, Ducks and Senators in the finals. Another good series-to-be but Ottawa would have spent much of their energy and sacrificed some players to injury to outplay Buffalo last series and lose to Anaheim in game 6.
Sorry Sens, my prediction looks bleak for you. IF this does happen watch out for those Leaf fans who'll bug you and say you choked again.

The Senators look better and more prepared than ever before. It's the playoffs - anything can happen! Look at last year - the two finalists didn't even make the playoffs this year.
If the Senators play as well as they did in the first round, they can beat anybody. And as we have seen many times throughout their history, the Senators have no problem taking on and beating the best teams. Detroit, Colorado, Buffalo - it doesn't matter.
Bring on the Rangers!

It doesn't matter though - Sens are playing and the Leafs are golfing (again!!).
For Leaf fans, the fifth decade of futility begins...
