Pens Hold Off Senators 2-1, Tie Series At One

-The Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Ottawa Senators 2-1 last night to tie the playoff series 1-1. Kris Letang scored a huge goal with about five minutes left in the third period to seal a Pittsburgh victory. Sidney Crosby set up the goal and scored a goal of his own. Marc-Andre Fleury scared Penguins nation when Peter Regin scored a goal eighteen seconds into the game. That would be their only goal, however, as Fleury stopped 19 of 20 shots on goal. Andy Sutton of Ottawa hit Jordan Leopold very hard and Leopold did not return. He will be further evaluated today. Sutton likely will not be suspended. Ruslan Fedotenko was a healthy scratch as I expected. Next game will be Sunday in Ottawa at 6:30.

-The Nashville Predators defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1 while the New Jersey Devils tied the series up against the Philadelphia Flyers.

-My apologies for not posting last night. My power was off until early this morning.
