3. Last meeting
Ugh. I'm still not ready talk about it but the last time these teams met was on April 26th in Game 6 of their first-round playoff match-up in Ottawa. Carey Price made 43 saves to earn a 2-0 shutout victory while Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored for the Sens but for some reason it didn't count.
If you feel like reliving that game for whatever reason, here you go...
We caught up with Sens centre Zack Smith earlier today and you can read/listen to his pre-game thoughts here.
