Penguins want more shots at winning against Senators

17 Mai 2017

"It felt great obviously to come through in an important and crucial moment", Ryan said Saturday night after he scored at 4:59 of overtime to give the Senators a 2-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final at PPG Paints Arena.

"We're keeping everything internal, staying away from clippings and all that kind of stuff", Ryan said. "I got fortunate that it found the back of the net".

Malkin tied it up at 14:25 of the third period when he tipped a Chris Kunitz shot by Anderson to break his shutout bid and get the Penguins on the board.

While the Penguins only had one goal in Game 1, it was a beauty.

"I liked a lot of things".

Sullivan said the Crosby trio also just needs to simply their approach.

In the ever-mixing and -matching world of Senators coach Guy Boucher, he has, at least temporarily, stumbled upon something special with a Pageau-Ryan-Stone combination.

It's a fun part of the game that doesn't get very much attention but it's a really big part of the game.

The Senators weren't anxious about giving up the lead. I think five-on-five, I think we're double the shots, or something like that.

"We can't get too far ahead of ourselves", cautioned Ottawa defenceman Marc Methot.

Asked to assess his personal performance in the postseason, Ovechkin said: "We lost". But Phaneuf didn't stop there in a contest that was more physical than Game 1.

According to a ministry spokesman quoted by the official Saudi Press Agency, the attackers used rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs). The city was home to Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, a Shiite cleric convicted on terrorism charges and executed past year .

The Senators almost claimed a 2-0 lead at 12:48 of the second on a wraparound play by Alexandre Burrows.

But the goal was disallowed, with the referee claiming he was in the process of blowing his whistle as Fleury had already gloved the puck.

That didn't sit well with the Senators or their faithful.

Still, we know the Penguins are going to have to make some adjustments for Game 2.

The Senators defense is often stingy, and that was certainly the case Saturday night.

The Senators won two of the three regular season meetings, though their 2-1 shootout victory on March 23 was marred by a slash from Crosby on defenseman Marc Methot left the pinky finger on Methot's left hand mangled, forcing him to miss 10 games.

And if Sullivan's history is any indication, then adjust they will. Look for the Penguins to have better answers for the Senators on Monday.

Yes, the Senators were being outplayed but it was Pageau, who else, that opened the scoring for Ottawa with his eighth of the post-season. Bobby Ryan collected the loose puck behind the Penguins net and sent a no-look backhanded pass to Jean-Gabriel Pageau near the the right face-off circle. The Penguins put eight shots on goal before the Senators got their first. Erik Karlsson for the Senators and Sidney Crosby for the Penguins were both held off the scoresheet last game but that should change in Game 2.

Evgeni Malkin, who scored the Penguins only goal, was the clubs best player.

He had gotten help earlier when Ron Hainsey's shot from the point was tipped by Jake Guentzel off the crossbar. "We're used to it, playing the full season with all these close games". "He's giving us a chance every night, and he's stealing them for us". "They're not going to give you anything but we worked hard to get our chances and we've got to bury them when we get them". If the Pens don't come out and blow the Sens out in game two, I would be very concerned if I was a Pens fan. "I thought we did a pretty solid job in containting that".

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.
