Two solid games last night. BOS 2 - 1 NYR, Bruins lead 3-0 // LAK 1 - 2 SJS, series tied 2-2

Pretty bad time for a piss break, Vokoun.

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.
