The Ottawa Senators should just rename the franchise to incorporate the word overtime after this run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The team’s fifth postseason win via the extra session came in Game 1 of the NHL Eastern Conference Finals on the road against the Pittsburgh Penguins, as Bobby Ryan scored on a glorious backhand top shelf.
This goal was the deciding tally and highlight of the night, but the biggest story for the Sens was actually the play of goaltender Craig Anderson.
He was quietly effective, stopping every Penguins shot but one and controlling the rebounds with ease.
It’s only one game in, but this series already has the look of a seven-game affair.
