Penguins knot series with 3-2 win over Senators

"You can't wait until the end to try and get back against a team like Pittsburgh", said MacArthur.
That combined with the fact the Senators play a system that just isn't going to allow too much offense on the rush means Crosby and his linemates will have to generate in other areas at even strength. "You give teams odd-man rushes the whole game, they're going to score on a good amount of them".
"At the same time, we know we're still okay here".
Dumoulin added the third Penguins goal less than four minutes later with his shot from the left point caroming off the skate of Dion Phaneuf and into the net. "We've got to be playing on our toes". Ottawa plays an extremely defensive brand of hockey designed by coach Guy Boucher, who arrived last May. "It doesn't matter if you play against Ottawa or Washington", the 30-year-old Russian said.
Head coach Mike Sullivan has tried to remain mum on who will start Friday night's Game 4, but Friday morning's team skate unveiled who will be in goal. The TV cameras caught a frustrated Karlsson upset with centre Kyle Turris after a power play in the second. So, I think just make sure we're hungry. We gotta start with that and it will eventually come.
"I think I'd be lying to you if I told you I would have bet the house on it, but, no, we're a confident group", Senators defenseman Chris Wideman said.
It certainly looked like it on Friday night during three periods that looked like a carbon copy of how Pittsburgh sprinted to the franchise's fourth championship last spring.
Were guilty of a bad start, but I think, as far as the goal scoring, I think, just keep going here, and well get the results we want, Crosby said.
"It wasn't like we gave up a lot of scoring chances".
Matt Murray is the Penguins number one goaltender. That brought some life into the building, because it hadn't been pretty until then. The Senators faithful weren't happy with their team's effort and had a right to be upset because this wasn't the performance anybody expected with so much on the line. Parked at the side of the crease, Crosby collected a pass from Jake Guentzel and was able to get the puck past Ottawa netminder Craig Anderson.
Murray replaced Marc-Andre Fleury in the first period of a one-sided Game 3 loss on Wednesday after Fleury allowed four goals on nine shots.
Ruhwedel was assisted to the dressing room in the first period after taking an elbow to the face from Ottawa's Bobby Ryan. Five more and the 2007 record of 51 one-goal games will fall. It didn't look good on Anderson, who had been solid up until that shot beat him.
Anaheim wound up outshooting Nashville 14-2 in the first period thanks to the Predators being credited for a shot during the intermission. "He made some timely saves for us when we needed it".
One thing that's always been true in the Stanley Cup Playoffs is that a hot goalie can carry you to the crown, so for the Penguins to have a scorching run from two separate puck-stoppers is quite a luxury. The game kicks off at 8:00 PM EST and NBCSN (US) will doing the national TV coverage while the game can also be watched online live on FuboTV.
Fleury was thrown into action when Murray suffered a lower body injury prior to Game 1 against the Columbus Blue Jackets in the opening round of the playoffs.
