Clarke MacArthur, Senators believe in destiny ahead of Game 7

When Clarke MacArthur closed his eyes on Wednesday night, the visions that danced around in his head probably werent all that different from those of his teammates.

I dreamt about taking that picture behind that trophy after the game, MacArthur said Thursday. Thats what I watched Nashville do the other night. What an amazing feeling and accomplishment.

The dream didnt stop there. His mind wandered further to Lord Stanleys shiny chalice.

You have a night with it [the Prince of Wales Trophy], and then it just gets higher from there. Then you have a chance to go for the whole thing, MacArthur said.

His voice trailed off.

What Id give for that MacArthur said.

Thats the sentiment that grips the Ottawa Senators. Every person in the dressing room has sacrificed something somewhere along this winding journey. MacArthur pushed it all to the centre of the table to return to the Senators lineup in the final week of the regular season after suffering four concussions in a span of 18 months.

Not just his career, but his ability to potentially live a normal life as a functioning adult, to be a father to his two children under the age of five, to be a husband and son and brother.

MacArthur, 32, is now one win away from the Stanley Cup final, with his team on a run almost as surprising as his own.
