That was one amazing game!! The Ottawa Senators now have a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven NHL Eastern Conference final against Pittsburgh. Ottawa got four goals past Marc-Andre Fleury in the first 12 minutes and 52 seconds — including the fastest three goals in team playoff history — and went on to top the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-1 last night at Canadian Tire Centre.
Zack Smith also scored and Bobby Ryan had two helpers for Ottawa, who suddenly has the upper hand in a series most expected to go the Penguins way. Sidney Crosby had the lone marker for Pittsburgh, which has scored only three goals all series. Fleury gave up four on nine shots and was replaced by Matt Murray, who made 19 saves. The teams get the day off before Ottawa hosts Game 4 Friday night at Canadian Tire Centre. Game time is 8pm. (Broadcast News)
