We laid it out there and we put it on the line. Guys were dog tired out there and battling and it just wasn't in the cards for us."

Duchene excited for chance to compete for Stanley Cup with Senators

"The Senators are a team that was one goal away from the Stanley Cup Final last year," he said. "Had they got there, you never know what happens. That's something that I am dying for, to have the opportunity at that. To be here on this team that I believe a lot in already, it's very special. There's going to be an adjustment process. Hopefully it's short, but I just want to bring my best to this team and be part of a long playoff run. That's the goal."
