Ditto this. I was screaming obscenities at Neil on my TV all series followed up by "I'd take him on the Rangers any day." I almost thought the handshake was going to have a Ciccarelli/Lemieux element to it "I can't believe I shook that guy's hand", but it didn't. I respect that Neil seemed genuinely congratulatory, and the Rangers (especially Henrik) were smiles when talking to him. The handshake at the end of the series is one of my favorite traditions in all of sports.

The Sens look really good for the next few years. They have the skill and showed that they can play the grit game too. Helluva series - glad that it's over.
