I want to congratulate the Ottawa Senators and their fans for making the playoffs this season. As a gift I'd like to run you through some stats that maybe prove that Toronto despite not making the playoffs for 6 years now is still on a better run. When I started digging around I was truly amazed by what I found, quite honestly.

Will Ottawa catch up to the Leafs playoff success in almost all categories with now their 4th extra visit to the playoffs?
If the standings remain the same Ottawa will play New Jersey in the first round. It's gonna be tough...
