Mike Hoffman argued the Ottawa Senators can enter Game 7 without any pressure weighing on them.
"There’s no pressure on us. They’re the ones that are favored," Hoffman said. "For us, we just take it as another hockey game. We know it’s a Game 7 and there’s a lot of us that haven’t played in one of those at this level. But, we know the game plan, sticking to our system and trying to shut them down as best we can to give ourselves the best chance (to win)." It's true that not many people thought the Senators would get this far, so even if they loss Thursday night this will be seen as a remarkably good season for them. All the same, that's likely not much help right now as the thought of being just one win away from playing in the Stanley Cup Final is likely tough to just brush aside. With that in mind, it will be interesting to see if the Senators are indeed the team that play as if they have less pressure on them, given that the Penguins are the ones that have more experience to lean on.
