OTTAWA -- With 12 players on the roster age 25 and younger, the Ottawa Senators are a team brimming with youth, hungry for experience.
The club’s five-game loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Semifinals was a painful lesson. However, the young contributors got a taste of what it takes to compete in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
"I think we took another step in the right direction," center Kyle Turris said. "I know it's pretty early, but I'm looking forward to next year already. The improvements we've made and [will] continue to make are exciting."
