Top-seeded Pittsburgh protected home ice in Game 1 of an Eastern Conference semifinal showdown against Ottawa. The Penguins picked up the game's final three goals to pull away, while Tomas Vokoun shined again in net.

Vokoun made 35 saves in his third postseason start and remains unbeaten since replacing Marc-Andre Fleury as Pittsburgh's starting goalie. The Penguins provided plenty of offensive support, including three special teams scores.

Pascal Dupuis punctuated the onslaught with a shorthanded goal in the third period. Evgeni Malkin added a goal and an assist for Pittsburgh, which also picked up a pair of power-play scores. 

The teams take a two-day reprieve before resuming series action Friday night in Pittsburgh. 

Final: Pittsburgh 4, Ottawa 1
