Those wild and crazy, playoff-bound Senators returned to Ottawa on Tuesday, unlikely regular season heroes. Captain Daniel Alfredsson was being cheered as soon as his face appeared on the scoreboard screen, pre-game. An "Alfie!" chant broke with 11 minutes to go in each period — get it, No. 11 — not a ripper chant, but hey, even fans are saving a little something for the playoffs. Thanks for the season, fans at Scotiabank Place were saying. Thanks for a season that extends beyond Thursday's final home date, versus the Boston Bruins, beyond Saturday, when the Senators play game No. 82 in New Jersey.
These are satisfying days for Spezza, Senators
