NHL royalty vs. the rowdy neighbors in Stanley Cup Final

NHL royalty vs. the rowdy neighbors in Stanley Cup Final”

The Pittsburgh Penguins host the Ottawa Senators at PPG Paints Arena on Thursday night for Game 7 of the Easter Conference final.

The Penguins are trying to become the first team since the Detroit Red Wings in 1998 to win back-to-back titles. Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby (87) and Evgeni Malkin (71) pose with the the Prince of Wales Trophy after beating the Ottawa Senators 3-2 in the second overtime period during Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final in the. Or look at Olli Maatta, who scored his first career playoff goal in Game 4, and then added another in Game 5.

The teams remained scoreless through the first overtime, as the Penguins held an 8-2 shots-on-goal advantage over Ottowa.

Ottawa fell to 0-6 all time in game sevens, while Pittsburgh are 10-7.

"I think that we did everything we could in our power and at the end of the day it could've gone either way, but they did it for a little bit longer than we did and a little bit better", said Karlsson. "I just think that's part of who he is, and that's what we love about him is that he's such a great team guy and he understands the importance of his game to helping this team win". It was the fifth one-goal game of the series.

"We made sure the kids knew early that it wouldn't hurt my feelings if they cheered for the Sens", she said. They edged Tampa Bay in Game 7 of last year's East finals and clinically disposed of Presidents' Trophy victor Washington in Game 7 of the second round earlier this month. Those same things can be used to predict how teams will perform in certain situations such as Game 7s.

The Hidden Bombshell in the Comey-Trump Story
The above video was shared by Philippe Reines , a "long-time Clinton confidant," who also played the role of Trump in debate prep. Sound familiar? Just last night, the New York Times published a story with remarkable details about former FBI Director James B.

The Senators were making their first trip to the Eastern Conference Final since 2007, when they lost in the Stanley Cup Final to the Anaheim Ducks. Rookie Jake Guentzel leads Pittsburgh with nine goals this postseason.

Mark Stone's second-period marker came 20 seconds after Kunitz broke the ice. Ottawa responded immediately with Stone — who stretched his left skate to stay onside — fired a wrist shot that handcuffed Murray. It was Kunitz's first goal in his past 22 playoff games. Both took the pregame warmup and were considered game-time decision because of upper-body injuries.

Kunitz leads the Penguins to victory in Game Seven; Karlsson, Schultz, Anderson and more in Scott Cullen's Statistically Speaking. Less than three minutes later, at 14:41, Ryan Dzingel banged in a fortuitous rebound - one that hit off Murray's back - to force a 2-2 tie.

NOTES: The home team is 21-20 in overtime Game 7s in National Hockey League playoff history.

The Penguins, meanwhile, might have some reinforcements for Game 7.

Malkin, with 153 career playoff points and 1.08 points per-game, sits only a touch behind Crosby statistically in the post-season, but nearly without exception it's Crosby who's drawn (and continues to draw) the opposition's fiercest opponent, including Erik Karlsson presently and P.K. Subban and Mattias Ekholm if the Pens prevail and face the Preds.
