The Ottawa Senators got lucky to win Game 3 of the best-of-seven series with the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 in double overtime after their goalie Craig Anderson put on a show facing 50 shots and still winning the game. In Wednesday night's Game 4, the team representing Canada's capital failed to capitalize on the momentum they had from such an inspiring performance. The Pittsburgh Penguins refused to let Craig Anderson's excellence from the previous game get into their heads, the team from steel city absolutely demolished Ottawa in Game 4 by a final score of 7-3. The Senators season is now on life support. "We felt we carried the play for the majority of the [first] period, and we knew if we kept playing that way they couldn't keep up," said Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik. "It looked like we played with a lot more speed; they were having trouble keeping up with us. When the Pittsburgh Penguins play their game it is easy to see why almost every hockey expert predicted this team to win the Stanley Cup. I personally, think the Ottawa Senators are out of answers and their season is all but over. Neal's three points doubled his total for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, while Kris Letang had four assists and Tomas Vokoun made 30 saves to win his fifth game in six starts for the Penguins. While the Senators are facing a big mountain to climb, Coach Paul MacLean was defiant after the game, taking no questions from the media and simply holding up the score sheet before saying, "I think everything's right here. It's 7-3. See you in Pittsburgh. We're going to Pittsburgh, and we're coming to play. Have a good night." The Ottawa Senators are down 3 – 1 in the series as a result of this loss they would have to win two straight games just to square things up. Nothing is impossible in the playoffs, but if the Sens couldn’t win a game after having the momentum of winning a thrilling double overtime game, how will this team win? Article from HockeyFanLand.Photo by Francois Laplante/NHLI via Getty ImagesRelated:Report: Rangers may buy out RichardsVideo: Sidney Crosby scores on the backhand - Pens vs. SensMore Great Content
