5 Positives from Penguins Game 3

Allowing a goal in the first minute of play isn’t the best way to start a game. Allowing three more in a two-minute span doesn’t help either. The Pittsburgh Penguins’ 5-1 loss in Game 3 against the Ottawa Senators wasn’t good. In Matt Cullen’s eloquent words, the team “played like shit.” But every dark cloud has […]

Hockey Fans Should Be Pulling for the Penguins

The Ottawa Senators deserve credit for their run to the Eastern Conference Final and their ability to take a 2-1 series lead over the defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins. They’re a 98-point regular season team and the only group to make the postseason with a negative goal differential (-2). Hardly anyone gave them a […]

It started just :48 into the game when Mike Hoffman...

Round 3, Game 3 preview: Pittsburgh Penguins @ Ottawa Senators

A preview of the game between the Ottawa Senators and the Pittsburgh Penguins on 17 May 2017. The Ottawa Senators return home looking to take the lead when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight in game three of the Eastern Conference final. Both games in Pittsburgh were low scoring affairs, with each team scoring a total of two goals over the two games. On the lineup front, Mark Borowiecki (sigh) and Viktor Stålberg are nearing returns, so it is possible there might be some changes for tonight. But for now, this is the team that played game two for Ottawa. MacArthur - Turris -...

Full Coverage Eastern Conference Final Game 3 : Pittsburgh Penguins at Ottawa Senators

The series comes back to Ottawa What can the Sens take from the the last few minutes of Game 2 to build on for tonight's game? Colin: If the Sens want to score against the Penguins, they're going to need to play with a lot more speed and intensity like they did in game one. When the urgency picked up in the end, the chances started to come. Hopefully they can carry that over into game three. Adnan: Nothing. The Sens might and will play better in game three. But it will have nothing to do with how they played against a team protecting a late lead. Ross: That they don't have to go 22 minutes...
