The Pittsburgh Penguins will win this series in four games. Right?
Hold the phone. It was the Ottawa Senators who won the first game of the series, and they did so thanks to a 2-1 overtime victory, with the oft-maligned Bobby Ryan earning the game-winning goal. Not only did the Senators beat the Penguins, they outshot them in the process.
Now the ball is in Pittsburgh’s court, as they attempt to even up the series before it heads back to Ottawa. If a Guy Boucher coached clubs holds a 2-0 series advantage against your favourite team, odds are you aren’t going to be able to emerge victorious.
Expect the Penguins to come out swinging, as they attempt to gain some traction towards earning yet another Stanley Cup.
