Even for a relatively younger franchise like the Ottawa Senators, there are too many big goals to count. So, when the boss suggested a piece on the Five Biggest Goals in Senators history, it was rather daunting.

Not that he had trouble capturing it throughout the entirety of a 35-minute conversation last Friday. Madigan, a native Montrealer who’s been a part of Northeastern’s hockey program since 1981 and its head coach since 2011, is one of the most insightful and charismatic interviews I’ve had in 13 years of covering hockey. He’s the ultimate student of the game — having been around it his whole life and having built enduring friendships with some of its most influential people — and he colours conversation with the accent of an adopted New Englander, with his quips landing like Chris Nilan’s right crosses, each one of them knocking you back. Madigan’s zest for his work, and his de
