2-PLUGGING IN THE POWER PLAY: You have to go back, way, way back to remember the last Senators power play goal.
Their response? Well, LOL.
Ottawa's Marc Methot, Derick Brassard and Zack Smith scored in a 2:18 span midway through the first period to chase Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury out of the game, and the Senators beat the Penguins 5-1 on Wednesday night to take a 2-1 lead in their NHL Eastern Conference finals.
Hoffman opened the scoring 48 seconds in, and the Senators blew it open against the sluggish Penguins a few minutes later with the fastest three goals in team playoff history. Kyle Turris made it 5-0 late in the second period.
It finally came with 5:01 remaining in regulation when Tom Pyatt scored to make it a 3-2 game. "So we use our assets and that's what works".
The Senators captured Game 1 in overtime and overwhelmed the Penguins early in Game 3 of a series that hasnt exactly been the walkover it looked like after Pittsburgh dispatched Columbus and Washington in the opening two rounds.
"It was a bad start", Crosby said. "But you don't want to feel your way into it at the same time". Even with Wednesday's disaster, Fleury still sports a.924 save percentage-better than Craig Anderson or John Gibson. Fleury allowed four goals on nine shots, and Matthew Murray made 19 saves in relief. Game 4 is scheduled for 8 p.m.at Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa.
Coach Guy Boucher isn't anxious the Senators aren't being given much credit.
"They're a veteran team". Pittsburgh wasn't the least bit pleased Ottawa ended up with a power play after Bobby Ryan hit Chad Ruhwedel in the corner and Ian Cole got the only minor after he stepped in to defend his teammate. A couple of reporters sniffed it out and watched; they saw Murray leave first, and Fleury put in an extended workout.
Regardless we have seen Fleury play great in these playoffs.
"That's what we're here to do". Perry stopped the puck as the Predators tried to clear and shot from the right boards at a severe angle.
The Senators would be up 3-1 right now if not for a shot by noted sniper Brian Domoulin (who doubled his season total in his 86th game) that passed through the slot and was headed to the corner boards until it hit the skate of Dion Phaneuf, changed directions and went into the net for what would stand as the victor. "We try to make the best decisions that we think give our team the best chance to win, and we go from there".
No Wimbledon wildcard for Maria Sharapova
Sharapova will have to win three matches to earn one of the 12 qualifying berths for women in Wimbledon's 128-player main draw. She has competed in the tournament seven times.
The 22-year-old native of Thunder Bay, Ont., took over from Fleury during the Penguins' post-season drive last spring, ultimately winning the Cup as the team's No. 1 despite having never played a full National Hockey League season.
No practice once again for injured players Patric Hornqvist, Bryan Rust, and Justin Schultz. Penguins goalies don't talk on game days, but the fact that the workout was kept under wraps raised some pointed eyebrows. The Pittsburgh Penguins are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 23.1 percent of their power plays.
"They came out hard, harder than we did", Fleury said Thursday.
"I think everybody is frustrated".
"It's not easy to score, but I hope, like, we forget all three games and turn page, and tomorrow we like start to play our game", Pittsburgh forward Evgeni Malkin said. Like all coaches at this time of the year, Mike Sullivan is tight-lipped when discussing injuries, giving out no more information than whether it's an upper- or lower-body injury, if he even divulges that much.
The crowd was delirious throughout the one-sided win and all the more so when their team got under the skin of the Penguins.
