Between the second and third periods, I Tweeted “The word that keeps popping in my head when I watch the Pens in both Game 5 and 6 is “incredulous”.
I couldn’t believe just how much the Senators had been out-working the Penguins since the end of Game Four. And after two periods it sure as hell looked like they were headed back to the Igloo for a Game Seven that no one in the Steel City would be looking forward to.
But thank goodness they finally started dictating the play in the third period. The Pens out-shot the Sens 18-4, eventually getting the tying goal from Matt Cooke to force overtime, and getting the game-winner from Pascal Dupuis on a one-time wrister past Pascal Leclaire at 9:56 of overtime to give the Pens a 4-3 win and a 4-2 series win.
Unless Montreal can complete their comeback over Washington, the Penguins will face the winner of the Buffalo/Boston series. It is still possible for the Penguins to play both Philly (Montreal and Buffalo win) and Montreal (Montreal and Boston win).
