Buffalo No. 2 on Senators’ hate parade

Via: Ottawa Citizen

‘So the conference final between the Sabres and the Senators should be a doozy — as Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff more or less put it the other day — and by the end of the series, we can expect this 10-year-old rivalry to have baked a little more. Could it ever reach the temperature of Senators-Leafs playoff confrontations? Probably not, but another series loss by Ottawa would lift the Sabres to the same 4-0 playoff record that the Leafs have against the Senators. And that would make the blood boil again in Ottawa.’
