Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson dispenses playoff advice

MONTREAL - As they chugged down the Via rails Tuesday afternoon, the Ottawa Senators thought they knew where they were headed.
But Montreal is not just a pretty city with a unique culture. Not at this time of year, when the local hockey team is still alive. No, Montreal is playoff mad, and the Bell Centre, well, it's going to be absolutely insane.
"I'm really looking forward to it," Daniel Alfredsson said of Thursday's Game 1 in this long-awaited series between his Senators and the Canadiens, whose house seats more visitors (21,273) than any other in the NHL. Not that many of the customers will be using those chairs when the teams take the ice.
"I'm looking forward to seeing how loud they can really get."
