Game 6: Pittsburgh Penguins @ Ottawa Senators

It's amazing how much one game can change things. Going into Game Five down 3-1 in the series, many of us thought that there would not be a Game Six. When the Sens were down 3-2 in the third period, it seemed to confirm that the season was over. Yet the Senators found a way to win that game, and suddenly this must-win game seems a lot more winnable than the last one. Let's hope the Senators agree with me on that one.

If the Senators are going to win this, they need to stick to what got them through the triple-overtime battle that was Game Five. The Senators need to win battles to the puck, play smart in their own zone, and hope that Pascal Leclaire is able to put up another incredible performance in net. The Senators are currently 0-2 at Scotiabank Place during this playoff run, it's about time they got a win in front of the hometown crowd.
