Finally, the game our capital has been waiting for.
The Ottawa Senators face the Pittsburgh Penguins, 8 p.m. tonight at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh for game 7 in the Eastern Conference. The Ottawa Senators have become the only Canadian team left in the NHL playoffs. With the series at a deadlock, game 7 will decide which team advances to the Stanley Cup Finals. And the Lord Elgin staff have their fingers crossed for our hometown’s team.
As the playoff progress, Canadians can’t help but express their hockey fan excitement and anticipation for tonight’s game! Whether you’re at home, with some friends or somewhere in the Ottawa area, Sens Mile (best known as Elgin Street) is where you want to be to watch the game.
As a dedicated Ottawa Senators, history has proven game 7 has never been won by the Ottawa Senators since they were founded in 1992. But, even with these grey clouds hanging over the city, the Lord Elgin can guarantee the city’s exciting atmosphere seen on Sens Mile tonight will create a memorable night for true sports fans!
Canadians are true sports fans. We go through everything with our teams, especially our hockey teams. Whether it be the Toronto Maple Leaf’s, Montreal Canadians, Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames, or the Ottawa Senators, Canadians want to see a team bring Lord Stanley’s cup north of the border. Canada 150th would be the perfect opportunity for the Ottawa Senators, Canada’s capital city team, to win game 7 and be one step closer to the Stanley Cup Finals.
The Ottawa Senators playoffs season has been a continuous inspiring battle, with some nights being jaw-dropping and others the reverse, but this season is Ottawa’s.
