NHL Playoffs 2010: Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Ottawa Senators (Game 6)
A lot of pundits thought that there would not be a Game 6 between the Ottawa Senators and the Pittsburgh Penguins but look where we are now. Thursday’s game was quite a war, as Pittsburgh poured it on with 59 shots on goal.
Cory Clouston’s men earned another home game with an emotional triple overtime victory in Game 5, but they are still the underdogs coming into this match. Yes, the Sens were able to get confidence from that win, but they won’t gain the momentum unless they tie the series.
But to their fans, Daniel Alfredsson and the gang defied the odds by just getting the opportunity to extend their season. With another victory tonight, the Sens would send the series back to Mellon Arena for Game 7 on Tuesday night.
In progressing to the Stanley Cup finals each of the past two years, the Pens twice came back to win series after losing the first two matches. They also won Game 7 twice on the road and was 4-1 when facing elimination.
The match kicks-off at 7:00 p.m. ET.
UPDATE: Pascal Dupuis scored 9:56 into overtime for the Pens to oust the Sens from the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 4-3 victory in Game 6.
