Despite the loss of Thomas Chabot, the senators beat the Montreal setting for the sixth time in 10 games this season and shot the Canadians straight to the final on Wednesday in Ottawa, this time counting from 5 to 1.
The “Census” began in the second period, with Brady Takachuk scoring his 17th goal early in the game.
Local favorites never looked back. Nike Paul, Connor Brown and Alex Formenton really beat Jake Allen, who faced 34 puck in this meeting.
First to Pinto
Shane Pinto, who was selected by senators in the second round (32nd overall) in the 2019 National League Draft, lit the red light for the first time in his career. So he first allowed local favorites to open the brand.
Defenseman Joel Edmundsson, however, allowed Blue-Blanc-Rouge to go back to the locker room with a tie on board with 32 seconds left in the first period.
Goalkeeper Anton Forsberg, who accepted a new contract this season, saved 29 in the win.
In the absence of Chabot, former Canadian Victor Meat was overused, spending 23:48 on ice. He established a new personal mark, obtained with 23:46 more than the previous Monday. With Hobbes, his peak was 23:10 on March 2, 2019.
For the Canadian it was the first loss of four excursions, he finished third with the Winnipeg Jets in the Northern Division, facing a fire in Calgary later in the evening.
Now that this duel is over, the Hubs will travel to Toronto on Thursday and Saturday to face Maple Leafs. He will end the season with two games against the Edmonton Oilers at the Bell Center on May 10 and 12.
