The last time these two teams met they had so much fun they decided to play a whole extra period and change.
#1 Pittsburgh Penguins (good lord, I almost typed Pirates. What's wrong with me) at #7 Ottawa Senators (2-1 PIT)
7:30 Eastern, NBC Sports, CBC, RDS
Here's a couple of comparisons between the two playoffs these sides have had.
Ottawa's top scorer is Daniel Alfredsson, with 8 points in 8 games. Pittsburgh has 5 with 9 or more points in 9 or fewer games: Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, Jerome Iginla, Paul Martin, and Kris Letang.
Both teams have used two goaltenders. Three of the four have SV% ≥ .940 and the fourth, around .890, is Marc-Andre Fleury.
These teams have had a pretty well-placed two-day break between games, considering they played 2 overtimes on Sunday. Paul Martin, Kris Letang, Sidney Crosby, Marc Methot, Sergei Gonchar, and Erik Karlsson all pulled more than 30:00 TOI. Eat some bananas fellas.
