Hockey season comes to a close in Canada with Ottawa Senators’ elimination

Hockey season is officially over in Canada, as all of the Canadian NHL teams have been eliminated from the playoffs.

The lone Canadian representative still in the hunt for the Stanley Cup was the Ottawa Senators. Unfortunately, the Senators were eliminated last night in Game 7 of their series with the New York Rangers. After the Rangers took a 2-0 lead at Madison Square Garden, the Senators pulled within one goal after Daniel Alfredsson scored on a power play. The Senators attacked relentlessly for the final six minutes of the game, but the Rangers held together defensively and blocked many of their shots. When the final buzzer sounded, it was the Rangers moving on and the Senators heading back to Ottawa.

It's just the first time since 1996 that all Canadian teams have been eliminated in the first round, signaling an early end to hockey season in the Great White North. Many local teams in Toronto and other cities will also be packing it in for the year, as the amateur and junior seasons have come to an end as well.

Hockey equipment can take up a lot of space, which is why many sports organizations turn to affordable self storage facilities in Toronto to hold their gear until next year.

Jiffy Self Storage, a leader in Toronto storage solutions, is currently running a contest on their website for a free iPad 3. Visitors to the site simply need to match a few Canadian landmarks and they'll be entered to win the iPad or one of several other prizes.
