Senators’ Twitter account incorrectly claims to be the first to advance to the 2nd round

The Ottawa Senators are pretty happy that they're advancing to the second round. Perhaps they are all a bit too excited as the team's official Twitter account proudly claimed that they are the first team to advance to the second round of the playoffs. 

There's just one problem – San Jose advanced to the second round by sweeping the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night. That was two days ago. 

Maybe the team's Twitter was trying to say they are the first to advance from the Eastern Conference. Maybe all of the excitement got to someone's head and they blocked out what happened a couple days ago. Either way, congratulations to Ottawa for moving on and at least this blunder was a fairly minor one in the scheme of things.
