Sidney Crosby, Penguins beat Senators 3-2 to tie series

That means the neutral zone should be a crowded piece of ice when the Pittsburgh Penguins look to eliminate the Senators on Tuesday night at Canadian Tire Centre.

But even with Letang's absence (and even additional injuries to defensemen Trevor Daley and Justin Schultz) the Penguins find themselves one win away from returning to the Stanley Cup Final without really having a true No. 1 defenseman to turn to.

Here's a quote from Ottawa coach Guy Boucher that can be taken two ways. "He goes to the net, and I hit it off him. They were flying, change the goalie and get something changed", said Anderson.

Can the Penguins be the first team to make the Stanley Cup Final in back to back years since 2009? So the reality sets back in, and we know how we have to play to give ourselves a chance.”. "That's why it's a great day today". He stopped 24 shots and will get the start in Game 5.

The spanking Ottawa took Sunday combined with the pressure of an elimination game have brought focus to the Senators' task as well. For sure. We're at where we're at. NBCSN (US) will be doing the national TV coverage while the game can be watched online live on FuboTV. "That's where our focus is at". They made some good shots. In Game 5, they scored four times in the first period and cruised to a 7-0 victory.

This time, it feels a little different.

"I thought Matt was solid", said Sullivan, the Penguins head coach. It's incumbent on the likes of the Senators' Derick Brassard, Kyle Turris, Clarke MacArthur and Bobby Ryan to do the same. They got the good plays. "I thought that's what we did". We haven't looked at the tape yet.

"Getting Rusty back is always good for the lineup", center Nick Bonino said.

The Conference final have now come down to best of three, with a win in game 4, the defending champions, Pens are all pumped up to clinch their second straight title. "That's to be expected".

Sidney Crosby and Phil Kessel added to their mounting playoff goal totals (seven apiece) and so did Scott Wilson and Matt Cullen, who entered with four goals between them.

"I think that was a big part of our success previous year was that we had all four lines going and chipping in offensively", forward Matt Cullen said. "I know it's going to be a tough one". I like the road team here.

Remember, the Senators opened the East final with a 2-1 win here. So, they've got good players. "We know it's not an easy task. The players have recognized (when) they have gotten overexcited". We got slapped - hard enough. "We'll try to do it".

The Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Ottawa Senators in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final by a score of 7-0.

Ottawa squeezed the life out of Pittsburgh's attack in true Senators fashion during the opening three games of the best-of-seven series, but failed in dropping Games 4 and 5.

"(Practice) has no effect. Ruhwedel, after gathering himself off the ice, went to the bench with blood dripping down his face. "It's not to be sharper", said Boucher. That's just how it is. He withstood a late push, too, thwarting another third-period Senators rally, with a great stop of a wide-open Erik Karlsson blast from the face-off dot with some ten seconds left serving as an exclamation point on the game. "That's what it is".

"It's about the ability to reload as fast as you can", Boucher said.

The Senators might not be more injured than Pittsburgh at this point, but the Penguins seem like the only broken team able to scrap around in this series.

Their head coach, Guy Boucher, is now the one coming under some fire for his post-game comments following the blowout loss in Pittsburgh. "It's just because the other team has pushback".

"That's what it's all about". Setting up the play was Crosby, who had an urgency to his game which had been lacking early this series (one goal, no assists).

He's been dodgier with the underdog card during the Pittsburgh series, never overtly using the phrase during the first four games. "And we're going to have the same approach". We had that the second series. While it's obviously a temporary "let's catch lightning in a bottle" type of move to energize the stars with a "north-south element" as Sullivan said yesterday, it's still a great opportunity for Wilson to show that he's useful up the lineup as well as in the 4th line role he's been mostly type-cast in up to this point of his National Hockey League career.
