The Montreal Canadiens have advanced to the second-round of this year’s NHL Stanley Cup playoffs, this after defeating the Ottawa Senators by a final score of 2-0 in game six of their first-round playoff series on Sunday night.
The Habs were led by the play of their All-Star goaltender Carey Price, who stopped all 43 shots the Senators brought his way yesterday evening in Ottawa.
It was a disappointing end to a fantastic season for the Senators, who made the playoffs thanks to an amazing stretch of wins over the final 3 months of the regular season.
Montreal jumped out to a quick 3-0 series lead over Ottawa, but the resilient Senators clawed their way back by earning victories in games four and five.
Unfortunately for Sens fans, there was just not enough gas left in the team’s tank when all was said and done.
Montreal will now advance to play the winner of the Detroit Redwings vs. Tampa Bay Lightning series, which Detroit currently leads 3-2.
