Senators-Flyers Preview (The Associated Press)

Two months ago, no one would have predicted the Ottawa Senators would enter the final day of the regular season with a chance to make the playoffs – let alone in control of their own fate. In fact, the Senators will enter the postseason as the league’s hottest team if they finish off their stunning turnaround by winning on the road Saturday against the Philadelphia Flyers. “I’ve never been on a run like this with a hockey team and it’s been special,” winger Clarke MacArthur told the NHL’s official website. The Senators seemed all but assured of missing the postseason but instead turned in the NHL’s best record over the past two months, going 22-4-4.
