The Ottawa Senators outlasted the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series by a final score of 2-1 in double overtime.
Tyler Kennedy opened the scoring by capitalizing on an Ottawa turnover, putting the Penguins up 1-0.
The Senators just couldn't find a way to put the puck past Tomas Vokoun for almost the entire game. But just when it looked like all hope was lost for the Senators after an Erik Karlsson penalty with just 1:27 left in the third period, Daniel Alfredsson tipped home a Milan Michalek shot with 28 seconds to go to tie the game at 1-1.
In double overtime, Colin Greening picked up a rebound of an Andre Benoit shot and put the puck past a flustered Tomas Vokoun for the game-winning goal.
The Sens now trail the best-of-seven series, 2-1.
