The actual play of the series hasn't been as entertaining from what I can tell, as Ottawa holds a 3-1 series lead heading into game 5 tonight. You could argue the Canadiens were heading into the playoffs at the wrong time, what with gave just a solid and surprising season after finishing at the bottom of the standing last year. This year they hit a rough patch a few weeks before playoffs started and Carey Price hasn't been playing well and now is injured and out for game 5, they were hoping they could turn it around to start the playoffs hasn't really worked out for them. It has worked for the Senators however, who suffered some big injuries during the season and then getting a huge boost by getting star defenseman Erik Karlsson back right before the playoffs. Factoring the teams situations heading into the playoffs it's not really a surprise the Seanators have the lead and look to move onto round 2.
For this match up, Hockey Artist and Canadiens fan Wade submitted another one of his digital paintings of Montreal Canadiens Alex Galchenyuk you can follow him on his twitter handle @DarthAlexander9. The other is my artwork of Ottawa's goaltender Craig Anderson.
