Ottawa Senators cheer team made an unexpected appearance in Manotick
last week, as they greeted motorists from the corner of Bridge and Main
Streets in the village before the Senators disposed of the Montreal
Canadiens in five games. Sens Fever is gripping the village again, as
the car flags are out and the team is facing off against Sidney Crosby
and the Pittsburgh Penguins. The win over Montreal was Ottawa’s first
playoff series win since they defeated Buffalo in the 2007 Eastern
Conference Final. Jeff Morris photo
