Only one game last night, but there are three tonight? Great Scheduling NHL!!

Pittsburgh Penguins-7 Ottawa Senators-3 (Penguins lead series 3-1)

With the contest tight heading to the third period, the Penguins explode for three third period goals to blow the game wide open in Ottawa to take a commanding 3-1 series lead back to the Steel City.  Captain Daniel Alfredsson after the game gave his team the bizarre no confidence rating saying that the Pens are too deep a team to beat.
