Pretty much this.

Ottawa still has a HUGE number of Habs fans in the city who were Habs fans before we got the team in '92.

Playing Montreal in the playoffs means you're increasing your LOCAL prospective ticket base by anywhere from 15-25%, and that's not even including you Habs fans from Montreal who are only 1.5hrs away.

Sens front office know that Sens-Habs is a sellout at whatever price they want to charge. Might as well get the money themselves, rather than donate it to the "middle man" (read: scalpers).
