Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Battle of Ontario

Rival Team: Toronto Maple Leafs

The Battle of Ontario between the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs has all the makings of a great rivalry. The two teams have been in the same division since the Senators entered the league in 1992 and have met in the playoffs several times. The Leafs may have won all four playoff series, but the Sens hold an edge the all-time series of this in this tightly contested series. There are always plenty of fans from both sides in the arena for these contests, so be in attendance for Sens-Leafs games if you want to see one of the best matchups of the season.

Senators vs Canadiens

Rival Team: Montreal Canadiens

The Senators and Canadiens rivalry dates back to the original Ottawa Senators franchise that existed from 1917 to 1934. The rivalry was dormant for several decades, however, in 1992 the Sens were reborn and so was the fierce rivalry between these two. The Habs and reincarnated Sens squared off in their first postseason series in 2013, which was won by the underdog Sens four games to one. A couple of years later, the Habs got their revenge beating the Sens four games to two in the first round of the 2015 playoffs. These two always put on a show when they meet, so don’t miss your chance to see a Sens-Habs game.

Senators vs Sabres

Rival Team: Buffalo Sabres

The Senators and Sabres have been in the same division since the Sens entered the League in 1992-93. However, things didn’t really heat up between these two until after the 2004-05 NHL Lockout. The two teams came out strong after the lockout and met in the playoffs several times in the years immediately following with the tempers boiling over during a regular season game on February 22, 2007, when a full team brawl broke out. If you want to see an intense game of hockey, make sure to be attendance when the Sabres are in town.
