Ray Emery and the Ottawa Senators are going to the Stanley Cup finals.
Emery is the first goalie in franchise history not to let down the team when it mattered the most. He enters the finals with a 1.95 goals-against average and .919 save percentage, having faced an average of 25 shots per game. He hasn’t been outstanding. He hasn’t carried the Senators. He is not even among the top three Conn Smythe candidates on this team (hello Daniel Alfredsson, Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley). But Emery has given his team what it needed.
And now Emery, 24 and in only his second full NHL season, brings a big personality — and some eye-catching suits — to the NHL’s final series of the season. For those unfamiliar with Emery, he’s the one with the larger mask and pads on, pictured above.
The Stanley Cup Finals are going to be hot this year, tickets are already very hard to come by.
