Penguins even series with shutout victory

Rita Gibson | 16 May, 2017, 12:22

The team that led the National Hockey League in scoring during the regular season and ousted the first and fourth overall teams during the first two rounds of the playoffs despite being outshot every game looked tentative, often passing up open looks in search of better ones that never materialized. RW Chris Neil returned to the Ottawa lineup after missing Game 1 because of what Boucher said was a nagging problem.

It's the first time Ottawa has been shut out since February 24.

There was a much more simple, much more aggravating reason Anderson got beat for the only goal Monday night in the Ottawa Senators' 1-0 loss in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final at PPG Paints Arena.

As the final score indicates, the goaltenders picked up where they left off after Game 1 went into overtime tied at one.

"To be honest I think I yelled more than once tonight, so I don't remember that time", Kessel said with a laugh.

"For me, now it's the finishing part".

That was enough for Marc-Andre Fleury, who stopped 23 shots for his second shutout of the playoffs and 10th of his postseason career. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.

Fleury finished with 33 saves. He caught it and shot on Anderson, who made the save and covered the puck before Sidney Crosby poked at it. The Penguins are 1-1 in overtime.

We'll be alright". "Like on objective ? No, he was contesting the shot", says Kawhi Leonard. "For me, I love having him around". Kevin Durant had 12 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter. "It's something that bothers a lot of players", Shumpert said .

Crosby then split Erik Karlsson's legs with a pass to Guentzel right in front of the Ottawa crease and the 22-year-old rookie managed to flip it over Anderson, over the cross board, over the boards and into the protective netting.

Ottawa didn't even bother with the whole shooting thing in the first 13 minutes of the final period and instead dropped multiple defenders into shooting lanes to support Anderson and preserve the tie like a soccer team parking the bus. Couple their exits with the fact that Patric Hornqvist was an unexpected, late scratch presumably due to injury, and the end result will cause concern when looking beyond Game 2.

The Penguins started the night leading the playoffs with 41 goals, an average of 3.4 per game.

NOTES: Malkin's assist gives him 20 points in the playoffs, tops in the National Hockey League.

The Penguins didn't lack for opportunities to jump on the Senators but four first-period power plays - including 45 seconds of a 5-on-3 - went nowhere. "Simple as that", Anderson said. "He's tall, big. He has confidence right now".

"We were pleased with the way we dictated the terms out there", Sullivan said.

It was Ottawa that scored first.

Television cameras caught Malkin and Kessel seething on the Pittsburgh bench, at times inconsolable while venting to teammates, coaches, or in Kessel's case, perhaps, an imaginary friend. Pageau had 12 goals during the regular season. It also lifted Malkin past Jaromir Jagr into third place on Pittsburgh's all-time playoff points list with 148.
