Facing elimination, Sens plan to stick to strengths in Game 6

"I'm going out there with my teammates to play hockey, and our mindset and our preparation starts right now", Brassard said about Thursday's Game 7 in Pittsburgh before he and the Senators left Ottawa.

Since 1995, no goaltender has won more Stanley Cup playoff games when required to make 40 or more saves than Anderson's seven. "We're going to do everything we can to have the best game we possibly can", said Karlsson. "I had a decent amount of time to pick my spot". And as Olympic coach Mike Babcock said in Sochi, "Everyone evaluates Sid on scoring and I evaluate Sid on winning".

The Penguins failed to clinch the Eastern Conference final as the Ottawa Senators beat Pittsburgh 2-1 on Tuesday to tie the best-of-seven series 3-3.

"We play (the) same game", he said about the upcoming Game 7, according to DK Pittsburgh Sports, "we win".

"If somebody told us back in training camp in September that we'd have an opportunity to win Game 6 in the Eastern Conference final at home in front of our fans, we would have taken it", Ryan explained Karlsson's message. Boucher has had them share what they've been through, but in the end he believes simplicity is key.

"They're so competitive", said Penguins winger Carter Rowney. "The minute we try to fall into the other team's strengths we're done and I think that's our main focus". "We're deeper into the series now, so that's got to be there".

If there was a right year for an National Hockey League team to finally repeat yet again it might be this one, what with a weakened Eastern Conference and no dominant team out west. "If you don't trust it now, there isn't a whole lot of hope for you". He leads the postseason in scoring with 24 points.

Senators goalie Craig Anderson proved one of the heroes for the Canadians, stopping 45 shots, including 22 of 23 in the second period. "He was a monster for us", said defenceman Marc Methot.

"After you play three or four Game 7s, you know how it is", he said.

"I think they know what to expect, and now it's a matter of going out and earning it and controlling what they can - doing your very best to get the result that we're looking for".

After the review, officials deemed Trevor Daley pushed Craig Anderson into the net with his stick, which negated the goal. Stone then swung baseball-style at the sailing puck and nearly scored, putting the puck off the post.

Malkin gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead on a strong solo effort at 4:51 of the middle period.

Coach Guy Boucher knows what is at stake. That shows he's able to rebound and continually fight off pucks. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 79.7 percent of their opponents power plays.

There is only one Senator, and one Senator alone, who can say he's picked up a point in a seventh game: Bobby Ryan. I think it's a great opportunity, just like (Tuesday) was, and I think the players have really stuck to the identity of when we have success.

In many ways, it was a textbook Boucher win: limit the opposition to one goal, scratch and claw to two for the win.

Anderson stood tall, fighting off the demons of Game 5, admitting there's always bad "thoughts that creep into your head". MacArthur got the puck to Claesson, who fed it to Hoffman.

This early goal from Mike Hoffman helped ease the tension. By no means are the battered Nashville Predators a pushover, but if the Senators can sneak by the Penguins, they might actually be favoured in the final, when they'd have all sorts of confidence and home ice advantage, to boot.
