OTTAWA (AP) - The Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators are developing quite a rivalry this postseason.
The Senators beat the Canadiens 6-1 on Sunday night in a fight-filled, emotional game. The teams combined for 236 penalty minutes and nine players were given a game misconduct.
Ottawa has a 2-1 series lead in the best-of-seven quarterfinal series. Game 4 is Tuesday night.
On Monday players from both sides downplayed the events of the game, saying it's just part of playoff hockey and to be expected at this time of year.
The intensity could ratchet up again Tuesday night.
``This is fun,'' Ottawa forward Kyle Turris said. ``It's a great atmosphere, real fun and I don't know if you would call it a hatred on the ice, but it's lots of fun.''
