The end of another month means another month of Sens moments to remember and cherish. Gord Wilson brings you the latest installment of 'The Goodies' from a crazy month of April which featured NHL firsts, playoff clinches and a boatload of comebacks from Sens players.

Craig Anderson
was setting the world on fire in goal prior to the ankle injury that put him out of the lineup for 18 games, but his numbers stood up well upon his return as well. Anderson finished the season with a 1.69 GAA and a .941 save percentage, the latter being the highest number ever recorded by a goaltender in a single season.

Needless to say, the season Andy has had is receiving praise from across the league. Not only that, but his coach, Paul MacLean, thinks he ought to be in the discussion for the biggest awards a goaltender can receive.

Here's what he had to say...

There was some concern when Chris Phillips left Sunday's game against Boston with what GM Bryan Murray called a "tweaked knee" but everything appears to be fine moving forward as Phillips said he was good to go for game one in Montreal.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a person who would like to win this Senators/Canadiens series more than Guillaume Latendresse.

As part of their first round playoff coverage flood, NHL.com passed along five burning questions ahead of the Sens' series with the Montreal Canadiens. Luckily, as someone who watches A LOT of Senators hockey (Read: All of It) I feel qualified to help them out with the answers ahead of time.

They posed the questions and pondered, and I did my best to answer honestly and objectively.

Let's take a look at what they wanted to know (NHL.com breakdowns are in italics)....

With the advent of any playoff scenario means there is plenty of opportunity for punditry and predictive wizardry.

The sleeper pick is a classic of any prediction. The team you think could go on a run but won't take any flak for if they don't. That beloved little engine that could, which should be warranting more attention but perhaps drew an unfavourable matchup and are now being written off.

Well, your Senators are getting a little sleeper love.

It has been 86 years since the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens played one another in a playoff series.

In 1927 they played one another in an NHL semifinal game for the right to play in the Stanley Cup Finals. The format they played at the time is much more analogous to what you'll see in soccer's Champions League head-to-head matchups. Two games, team with the most goals on the aggregate takes the series.
