The Senators are moving on, but its not yet clear who they'll face in the second round.

The Senators have punched their ticket to the Eastern Conference Semifinals, beating the Montreal Canadiens in five games in their first round series. They're happy about it:

Now, the table turns to the second round. Who will Ottawa play? There are still plenty of options for the No. 7-seeded Sens.

If Pittsburgh defeats the Islanders, the Senators will play the Penguins no matter what else happens. Pittsburgh is the top seed and they'd be eliminating the bottom seed, leaving the Sens as the lowest-remaining opponent. Pens vs. Sens.

But if the Islanders come back and defeat the Penguins in seven games, things get complicated.

* If the Islanders and Rangers each advance, the Senators will play the Rangers, leaving the Islanders to the winner of the Boston vs. Toronto series.

* If the Islanders, Capitals and Bruins advance, the Senators will play the Bruins, leaving the Caps for the Isles.

* If the Islanders, Capitals and Maple Leafs advance, the Senators will play the Leafs, setting up a Capitals vs. Islanders second round series.

Those are the scenarios. Which would you like to see, Sens fans?
