Threw together some Twitter and Facebook headers that you can use heading into the Sens playoff drive!
Many of you have already seen my world famous MS Paint infographics. Now I introduce a more professional, yet equally as accurate one showing the matchups between Ottawa and Montreal!
Threw together this playoff desktop background for anyone that wants to use it. Currently only have 1366x768 available (my laptop's dimensions). If you have any other aspect ratio requests, comment here or send me a tweet and I'll make it.

The Binghamton Senators began their quest to win their 2nd Calder Cup trophy with Game 1 against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Of note is new rules introduced in the AHL have made the Conference Quarterfinals a best of five (previously a best of seven) making the first game all the more important. Unfortunately, Binghamton would drop the game at home 3-2 in overtime. Nevertheless, some good highlights came out of it including these two awesome fans and a beauty of a goal by Mark Stone. The full highlight video can also be found below.
By now everyone has probably heard of the #SensMotB campaign to raise money for the Sens Foundation started by @BonksMullet on Twitter. If you haven't, check out @SensMotB and the article explaining how it works below:
Edit: Newest article covering #SensMotB is below:
To help encourage more people to donate and reward those that have already done so, I've decided to part with a few pieces from my memorabilia collection. Starting with the regular season finale game against Boston through the first four playoff games, I will do a draw following the game for anyone that is on the donors list (link to be posted). Winning one draw does not make you ineligible for future draws, so get your pledges in early! In case you were wondering, I will be shipping any won items straight to your mailbox regardless of where you live.
5. Ottawa Senators VS Boston Bruins
He may not be the most popular player among Senators fans, but he is responsible for our current #1 goaltender in Craig Anderson. He is a former All Star having participated in the festivities last year in Ottawa and is currently the hottest goalie in the NHL by far heading into the playoffs. He is also coming off a season where he won the William M. Jennings trophy. Why wouldn't you want his rookie hockey card?
4. Away Game 1
Here's your chance to own an autographed hockey card of this retired legendary Senators goalie. Ok, maybe not legendary, but he did sport one of the coolest set of pads this franchise ever had (the ones used in the card's picture)! He is also responsible for one of the more memorable moments in Sens playoff history, setting a franchise record 56 saves in that epic triple OT victory over Pittsburgh in 2010.
3. Away Game 2
Double prize night! You might end up with two fan favourites' autographed 4x6 photos in your mailbox. One is known for beating up numerous opponents with ease, while the other is one of the franchises' most popular defensive defencemen known for his bone crushing hits. In case you have no idea who I'm talking about, it's Brian McGrattan and Anton Volchenkov!
2. Home Game 1
This guy is a physical beast with a brain to boot. He can also dance really well to Single Ladies. He's part of the Calder Cup winning Binghamton Senators squad and participated as a rookie in the All Star game festivities last year in Ottawa. Quite the resume, so of course you want to own this autographed hockey card of his!
1. Home Game 2
Obviously the best is saved for last, won't require much explanation as it's an autographed hockey card by God himself!
