When it comes to the value of experience in the NHL playoffs, one image springs immediately to mind. It was a picture splashed across the front of the Citizen sports section on April 20, 2007: Pittsburgh Penguins stars Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Jordan Staal, all wearing faraway stares in the Penguins’ dressing room following their first-round defeat to the more-experienced Senators.

The Ottawa Senators would like to think they have a chance to upset the Eastern Conference-leading New York Rangers,
and there are many who think they can. Despite their final position in the standings, the teams are close in many areas,
which should make this one of the more compelling first-round matchups.
