St. Patrick’s Day Shows How Far The Senators Have Come

St. Patrick’s Day and Ottawa Senators hockey don’t often go hand-in-hand, but a quick glance back to this day in 2017 shows how far they’ve come. The team and their fans certainly know that a lot can change in three years.

Despite a 2-1 loss on home ice to the Chicago Blackhawks on the prior night, the Senators woke up on St. Patrick’s Day 2017 sitting first place in the Atlantic Division, with a record of 39-23-7. It was the first time they had reached the summit of the division since the NHL’s divisional realignment in the 2013-14 season.
