Ottawa Senators: Best 5 Games This Season

Marc DesRosiers- USA TODAY Sports

This season has already been a crazy one for the Ottawa Senators. Injuries to veteran have forced Ottawa to call up some rookies, and step up in their place. We look back at the top Sens games so far this season, with a little explanation as to why it is indeed a top game. With just less than half a season remaining, I am sure there are more memorable Senators moments ahead of us, and the Sens Army couldn’t be happier.

From the first game at Scotiabank Place since the lockout, to the first Battle of Ontario game Ottawa won, there are different reasons as to why each game is inside this slideshow. Every game is special for the players, management and fans, so deciding the top 5 was no easy task. Ottawa has played some great games so far this season.

The season started Jan. 19, 2013, and will close this Apr. 27, so there are more games for Ottawa to play. As Ottawa continues a playoff push come early May, I am sure there will be more games to add to this slideshow.

Since the first announcement of a lockout until a new CBA was reached, Ottawa’s fans have been waiting for their boys to hit the ice, and represent the city as proudly as they can. These top five games really show what Ottawa can do on the ice, and don’t be surprised if we see another “Top Five Ottawa Games” especially due to the way they are playing.
