Sens finishes up the job.
The Ottawa Senators have ended the Buffalo Sabres' season and advances to the Stanley cup final with a 3-2 overtime victory. Team captain Daniel Alfredsson sent Buffalo home with the overtime game-winner.
Each of the players composing the first Ottawa line scored a goal during that game: Dany Heatley, Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson. Their great season will continue during next week as they are now waiting for a winner to be declared between the Detroit Red Wings and the Anaheim Ducks.
Buffalo's goaltender Ryan Miller played a great game once again and did all he could to avoid the elimination but will have to swallow the defeat. Buffalo has work to do this summer as the contract of two of their star players, Daniel Briere and Chris Drury will expire in a few weeks.
Ottawa will have the opportunity to win the Stanley cup next week. No canadian team has won the cup since the Montreal Canadiens in 1993.
