Senators bounce back to beat Penguins, force Game 7

06 Juin, 2017, 11:10 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

I love these big games. Crosby would dig out the ball, determined.

The Penguins may not have won Game 6, but they still had a strong showing.

The Senators take on the defending champion Penguins in Pittsburgh on Thursday night in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final.

Hornqvist, who has four goals and three assists in 13 playoff games, has been out since leaving during warmups for game two.

Central to their woes is a power play that is 0-29 over the last 10 games. Jake Guentzel leads Pittsburgh with nine goals, Evgeni Malkin has 17 assists and Phil Kessel has 53 shots on goal. The game is set to be the most exciting one yet.

To wonder about the freaky coaching decision to take goaltender Craig Anderson out of the game, then then throw him back in before he yielded his worst goal of the post-season?

These are the guys you want to have, and if you don't, these are the guys you want to stop.

The last time Ottawa was in Pittsburgh it was a night to forget as nothing went right for Ottawa. "I feel like this team, I've never been on a team that reloads as quick as we do and that's what this time of year is all about".

"It probably escalates with every game just because teams get to know each other", Crosby said to the media after the game.

Their hockey life: that's a good way to put it.

For the second time in a row, the Senators face elimination at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Pittsburgh Penguins have allowed two or less goals in six of their last seven games.

Sparked by the goaltending of Craig Anderson and a blast by Hoffman, they followed through with the 2-1 victory that pushed the Eastern Conference final to a seventh and deciding game.

"So did I", said Smith.

Ryan has frequently mentioned how the Senators have become a close-knit group, going so far as to say it's the tightest team he's ever played on. "I think I could have scored two or three goals tonight". Their players, however, don't see any similarities through the different series or something they're failing to do that would be cause for concern. I think that's pretty cool. It is also a risky play, because if they fall behind by more than a goal they really have to open up which invites a potential repeat of Sunday.

They can work all they like, but it guarantees nothing.

He didn't. His teammates noticed and the Capitals responded with back-to-back wins, extending the best-of-7 series. "The thing that comes out of those guys is there's a lot of poise and there's a lot of calm in the way they see it".

"You know, I think they know what to expect, and now it's a matter of going out and earning it and controlling what they can and doing your very best to get the result that we're looking for".

The odds are that better players - even ones facing the constant assaults that Crosby in particular endured in Game 5 - will produce. Ottawa has been a moneyline underdog of +150 or more nine times since the National Hockey League all-star break.

"You can't change what happens in the past", said Anderson, who has credited work with a sports psychologist early in his career for helping him manage the mental side of the game.
