There were more shutouts last night than there are games tonight. GOALIES!!!1

#7 Ottawa Senators at #1 Pittsburgh Penguins (3-1 PIT)

7:30 Eastern, NBC Sports, CBC, RDS

Well this hasn't exactly been a close series, has it? Craig Anderson's SV% has dropped by about .020. Ottawa's only win came in double overtime. Game 4 was close as late as the third period, which started 3-2, and then the Sens melted down to the tune of a 7-3 defeat.

Naturally, rather than talk about that, Paul the Walrus McLean pulled a Tortorellan press conference, and Old Captain My Captain Daniel Alfredsson got everybody chatting about how he DIDN'T GUARANTEE A COMEBACK LIKE MARK MESSIER QUAH???? I dunno, something about how Ottawa is vastly inferior to Pittsburgh in terms of personnel and has three games to win, not one, maybe?
