The 2005–06 Ottawa Senators season was the 14th NHL season (13th season of play) of the Ottawa Senators. After one of their franchise-best regular seasons, finishing with 113 points, the Senators made it to the Eastern Conference Semi-final, in which the Buffalo Sabres eliminated Ottawa in five games.

Off-season[edit]

Changes occurred to the Senators roster before the season. First, Ottawa acquired the playoff-experienced goaltender Dominik Hasek for his Stanley Cup experience. Second, a blockbuster trade on August 23, 2005 involved Marian Hossa and Greg DeVries being sent to the Atlanta Thrashers for Dany Heatley. The trade occurred on the day that Hossa had signed a new contract. The value of Hossa's contract was beyond what GM Muckler felt that Hossa was worth and so he was dealt away. Marian had led the Sens in scoring.

The Senators' arena, Scotiabank Place, its name since January 2006 since signing with Scotiabank for a 25 year, $25 million contract.

Regular season[edit]

Heatley, together with Alfredsson and Spezza, formed one of the league's top offensive lines,[2] dubbed the "CASH line" by fans in a contest held by the Ottawa Citizen. The name is made from the initials of Captain Alfredsson, Spezza, and Heatley.[3] Cash Line won out over finalists 'Dash Line' and 'Dazzle Line,' which Spezza reputedly despised and wanted to veto.[4] Another nickname the line has picked up is the 'Pizza Line', and is the nickname used by the Citizen's rival paper, the Ottawa Sun.[5][6] However, during the press conference to introduce the teams for the 2007 Stanley Cup Final, Dany Heatley went on record to say he likes the 'Cash line' name.[7]

The Senators team sent nine players to the 2006 Winter Olympics as part of the NHL's commitment. Daniel Alfredsson, Zdeno Chara, Martin Havlat, Dany Heatley, Andrej Meszaros, Wade Redden, Christoph Schubert and Anton Volchenkov all played for their country's national teams, while Jason Spezza was a substitute for Canada. The experience was not good for the Senators: Dominik Hasek was having a good season but the team lost him to a hamstring injury he suffered while playing for the Czech national ice hockey team. He would not play again for the Senators.

In addition to leading the NHL with most goals for (312: excluding shootout-winning goals), the Senators also led the NHL in shorthanded goals (25), scoring points (840), and shots on goal (2,811).[8][9]

Highlights[edit]

The 'CASH' line made a dramatic and historic debut, playing in the first game of the 2005–06 season on October 5, 2005, against the Toronto Maple Leafs in Toronto. In the pre-season, right winger Brandon Bochenski had been playing on the line as he had played with Spezza in the AHL during the lock-out. But with five minutes to go, with the Senators trailing, then Senators' coach Bryan Murray replaced Bochenski with Alfredsson and Alfredsson scored a game-tying goal with 62 seconds left. Heatley and Alfredsson would then go on to score the first shootout goals in NHL history to win the game that night.[10]

Some other highlights of the Senators' season included an 8–0 road win over their provincial rivals, the Toronto Maple Leafs, on October 29, 2005. Dany Heatley scored 4 consecutive goals in that game. Just four nights later in Buffalo, the Senators defeated the Sabres 10–4. Martin Havlat and Daniel Alfredsson each scored 4 goals and Jason Spezza had 4 assists. It was the first time that an NHL team had scored 10 goals in a regular-season game since January 11, 2003, when the Washington Capitals defeated the Florida Panthers at home by a score of 12-2.[11] It was also the first time that the Senators had scored 10 goals in a regular-season game since November 13, 2001, when they defeated the Washington Capitals 11-5 in Washington.[12] On November 29, 2005 the Senators defeated the Montreal Canadiens 4–0 and, in doing so, improved to a 19–3–0 record through their first 22 games of the regular season. Over that span, Ottawa outscored its opponents 102–45. Jason Spezza had reached 41 points (11 goals, 30 assists) and Daniel Alfredsson had reached 40 points (20 goals, 20 assists) by this point. Dany Heatley recorded a point in every one of these games and had 17 goals and 21 assists for 38 points.

In an 8-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on December 17, 2005, the Senators set a franchise record for most power-play goals scored in one game, with 6.[13] On February 2, 2006, the Senators scored three short-handed goals in a 7–2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.[14] It was the second time in franchise history that the Senators scored three shorthanded goals in a single game, as the Senators had scored three shorthanded goals in a 5-2 home win over the Florida Panthers on November 18, 2000.[15]

Heatley became the first Ottawa Senator in franchise history to reach 100 points on April 13, 2006, recording two assists during a 5–4 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers and five days later became the first Senator to score 50 goals in a season. Meanwhile, defenceman Wade Redden became the first Senator to win the NHL Plus/Minus Award, tied with New York Ranger Michal Rozsival, with a +35. Despite missing 14 games, Spezza finished second in the NHL in assists, with 71.

Playoffs[edit]

The Ottawa Senators ended the 2005–06 regular season as the Eastern Conference's first seed.

Ray Emery took over the starting goaltender duties; he became the first rookie netminder since Philadelphia's Brian Boucher in 2000 to win a playoff series when the Senators defeated Tampa Bay in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, four games to one. The Senators were then defeated by the Buffalo Sabres in the second round, four games to one.

After the playoff loss, Eugene Melnyk (the team's owner) comforted fans in an open letter, by saying that their team would not only win the Stanley Cup in the future, but, once they had it, they would, he boasted, "hoard" it year after year.[19]
