The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing without testifying. MONTREAL -- One thing the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens agreed on at the end of their sometimes bitter playoff series was that it all came down to goaltending. Craig Andersons rock-solid play and some shaky moments for Montreal backup Peter Budaj put the Senators through to the second round of NHL playoffs with a 6-1 romp over the Canadiens on Thursday night. Ottawa won the best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarter-final 4-1 and will move on to the second round for the first time since 2007, when they reached the Stanley Cup final only to fall to the Anaheim Ducks. "Finding a way to win two games in this building feels great and so was being able to finish it off on our first chance," Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson said. "Andy made some great saves and we took over more and more as the game went on." Anderson, who posted heady numbers in the regular season, was just as sharp in the playoffs, holding the usually high-scoring Canadiens to nine goals in five games while his own supposedly low-scoring team piled on 20 against Montreal. "For our team, Craig Anderson obviously was the MVP of this playoff series," said Ottawa coach Paul MacLean. "He was outstanding in every game. "He gives us a chance to bend but not break, to recover, get our bearings. And once we do that, were able to establish our game." He got no argument from his Montreal counterpart Michel Therrien. "He was the player of the series," he said. Anderson made the difference right off the bat in this one. Injury-wracked Montreal stormed out of the gates, but Anderson shot out his glove for a brilliant save on Rene Bourque in the opening moments. At the other end, a clearly nervous Budaj, making his first career playoff start, coughed up a huge rebound on Ottawas first chance and Zack Smith put it in only 2:17 into the game. "I think everyone took a good deep breath after that and said We can start playing now," Anderrson said of the save. "They came out hard. "My job is to give the team a chance to win no matter if its the first minute or the last." Therrien avoided direct reference to Budajs play, other than: "We came to play and we worked hard, but every time. . . (the Senators) capitalized on their chances, lets put it that way." The first ever playoff meeting in the modern era between the teams only two hours apart on highway 417 featured some nasty moments and name-calling. But at the end only kind words were voiced, although with the two coaches exchanging only the briefest of handshakes on the ice. The series opener saw Montreal centre Lars Eller stretchered off the Bell Centre ice covered in blood from a hit by Eric Gryba. MacLeans defence of his blue-liner prompted Canadiens tough guy Brandon Prust to call him a "bug-eyed, fat walrus." Game 3 disintegrated into a full-scale brawl and more verbal exchanges. None of it seemed to matter when it was over, even if the Ottawa players were reportedly singing the Montreal fans "Ole Ole" song as they left the ice. Custom Panthers Jersey China. "I thought the whole series was fun," said MacLean. "I didnt think it was bitter at any time. At the end of the series its just good job, good job. I congratulate Michel on his team." However, he could not hide his glee with what his team accomplished. "We just beat the Montreal Canadiens in the Stanley Cup playoffs,"he said. "I mean, to me thats huge. Im going to call my mom and say we finally beat her team." The victory gives Ottawa time to rest up and heal bruises before the conference semifinals begin next week. Cory Conacher had two goals while Alfredsson, Kyle Turris, and Erik Condra also scored for Ottawa, who were underdogs as the seventh seed in the East but were bolstered down the stretch by the return of top players like defencemen Erik Karlsson and Jared Cowan. P.K. Subban scored for Montreal, which had five players injured in the series, including starting goalie Carey Price. Budaj made 23 saves in his place. After Smiths goal, another puck slipped behind Budaj and off a post, where Conacher tapped it in at 12:26. Montreal got one back on their first power play with 15 seconds to go in the period, as Subban wired a low point shot to the far corner. The Bell Centre crowd booed as Turris gave Ottawa a 3-1 lead shorthanded at 11:29 of the second frame. The Senators centre was pushed into Budaj by Tomas Plekanec and was on his hands and knees in the crease when a Condra shot went in off his arm. But it rightly stood up to video review. It was quiet at the 21,273-seat rink as the Senators scored on three straight power-play chances in the third period. Alfredsson wristed a shot in at 6:22, Conacher beat Budaj from the left side at 12:27 and Condra poked in a loose puck in the crease at 16:12. Yet the fans who stuck around to the end still gave the home side a warm ovation for an entertaining season. Montreal finished last in the conference last season and rose to second in the lockout-shortened 2013 campaign. They looked to have recovered from a late-season funk going into the playoffs. They outshot Ottawa and outplayed for long stretches of most of the games, but couldnt find enough goals to win. "Yeah we played hard and sometimes we played better than them, but the final score is we lost the series," said Montreal defenceman Andrei Markov. "We can only blame ourselves." Winger Max Pacioretty reportedly played through a separated shoulder, but wasnt accepting that as an excuse for the loss. "Andersons a great goalie and he played five great games, but we made it easy on him,"said Pacioretty. "We didnt get enough bodies to the net. Thats where a player like me has to do a better job." Notes: Michael Blunden made his playoff debut for Montreal. Robert Mayer backed up Budaj ... Ottawa had no line-up changes from Game 4. ' ' '
