Pittsburgh rebounded from a rocky start to pulverize Ottawa 7-3 on the road Wednesday night. The top-seeded Penguins seized control of the Eastern Conference semifinal series with six unanswered goals.
Jarome Iginla and James Neal each scored two goals apiece, while teammate Kris Letang dished out four assists. Ottawa led 2-1 when the second period began but the home team was overpowered for the remainder of the game.
Senators goalie Craig Anderson took a seat before things concluded. It was a far cry from his 49-save performance in Game 3.
The Penguins claimed a commanding 3-1 series advantage. Pittsburgh heads home with an opportunity to advance to the conference finals with a win over visiting Ottawa on Friday.
Final: Pittsburgh 7, Ottawa 3
