Playoffs are a different ball game from the regular season. I don't see a team that has been as consistent as we have losing to a mediocre Senators team unless we just choke. But choking would be caused by youth and inexperience, and not because we faced Ottawa instead of Washington/Florida.
Excellent post.

We heard it relentlessly from Islanders fans how they would sneak in and ruin the Rangers season that year.
