Stanley Cup challenges
Ottawa played two challenges after the season at The Arena in Ottawa.
Galt vs. Ottawa
Five members of the Galt team were from the Ottawa area or had played for Ottawa: Hague, Baird, Murphy, Smith and Berlinguette. Odds given before the game had Ottawa as 3–1 favourites. Bruce Ridpath who had been knocked out in the final game of the season played in the challenge game. Only 2,500 attended the game, which was described as a 'poor exhibition' with 'water covering the ice in several places.' Ottawa led 5–0 before Galt scored two. The teams traded goals to the finish to make the final 7–4.

Stanley Cup engraving
Ottawa put their names on the cup in 1909 and 1910 but did not in 1911. It was not until the trophy was redesigned in 1948 that the words "1911 Ottawa Senators" was put onto its then-new collar.
