Pittsburgh Penguins vs Ottawa Senators takes place in the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Sunday night with the Eastern Conference Semifinal series Game 3 being a game that the Senators simply must win if they are to stand a realistic chance of turning this series around. The game is scheduled to start at 7.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Senators are currently 2-0 down in the series coming into this game, and if they lose tonight they will be in the last chance saloon going into Game 4. They will not want to put themselves in a position where they have to win four straight games against Pittsburgh, and they will want a win tonight to pull the series back to 2-1.
The Senators played much better in Game 2 than the opening game of the series, losing only by one goal, and scoring three in the 3-4 loss.
In that game Sidney Crosby scored his second postseason hat trick, with Brendan Morrow scoring the other.
Ottawa will be disappointed as they still have not given their best so far in this series and they are increasingly running out of time to show what they are made of.
Tonight's game takes place at Scotiabank Place, and the Senators will continue to have a strengthened line up. Jason Spezza joins Anderson, Karlsson, Milan Michalek, and Jared Cowen in returning to the side, meaning that every major player who was hurt during the Senators' run to the postseason is now back. They will need everyone to be at their best if they are going to win tonight and pull the series back a little closer.
