"I think we're looking closer to the four-month range rather than the five-month range," said Senators GM Pierre Dorion. "But if it falls into the season, I don't think we're really going to change our mindset here with what we have with depth at center and there could be an opening for a guy like Logan Brown to see what he could do at the start of the year." Brassard posted 14 goals and 39 points in 81 games during his first campaign with Ottawa, but he was better in the playoffs.

Derick Brassard (undisclosed) was healthy enough to play in the third period, but Senators coach Guy Boucher decided to let him rest.

Ottawa was already down 5-0 after 40 minutes, so there wouldn't have been a point making Brassard play if he was even a little hurt. Brassard absorbed a blow from Pittsburgh's Chris Kunitz in the second period that likely contributed to the decision to rest him. Look for Brassard to be available for Game 6.

The Senators knocked out the Rangers in six games, but Brassard felt awkward throughout the series and sorry for his ex-teammates that their season was done. "I'm glad we won, but it sucks to see them sad and everything. It's just not a good feeling," Brassard said. "I just really didn't like it at all. I'm just so glad it's over. ... I had a really hard time. It really wasn't easy. I didn't know what to expect from the beginning, but I'm glad it's over." He potted just one goal in six games versus the Rangers after he had eight points against Boston in Round 1.
