We're there Sens fans.

The Ottawa Senators clinched a spot in the 2007 Stanley Cup final with a 3-2 overtime victory over the Buffalo Sabres in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final on Saturday.

More than 3,000 Senators fans gathered at the Red Zone at Scotiabank Place on Saturday to watch their team play in Game 5. The Sens Army was treated to an historic afternoon of hockey as captain Daniel Alfredsson delivered the game-winning goal. The crowd roared after the goal and celebrated the win with hugs, high-fives and chants of "Alfie-Alfie". Here's what a few fans had to say afterwards:

"This is awesome. We are going to the Stanley Cup final for the very first time, and the Stanley Cup is coming home." - Ottawa's Mark McAllister

"It would be awesome if the cup came to Shawville. It's a small town and it would be great to have it there." - Justin Chevrier of Shawville, Que.

"Come on boys; bring the cup home. We're waiting for it." -Carol Farley of Ottawa

"I came home for the weekend to watch the game and this was amazing. Go Sens Go." -Brenda Troke of Toronto

"I'm a diehard Sens fan. I'm here every game. We had an unbelievable crowd here. The Sens Army is amazing. We're going all the way this year." -Zachary Saikaley of Gloucester.

"With the big screen outside, it's awesome. It's a beautiful day, and I'm glad we can all be here. I'm sitting here in the sun but I have goose bumps watching the Sens play." -Barb Dupuis of Ottawa
