Most fans would cry, stew or go to bed after watching their team's season end in double overtime of Game 7, but Ottawa Senators fans showed again why they're world class.
Hordes of Senators fans flocked to Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier Airport and waited in the rain to welcome the team home after its 3-2 season-ending loss in double overtime to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final on Thursday.
The Senators' team flight did not return from Pittsburgh until shortly after 3 a.m. ET Friday. But the weary players, and coach Guy Boucher, still made sure to acknowledge their rabid supporters when they departed home.
Good work all around, Ottawa.
