Win or go home. It’s that simple. As for the first time this season, the Ottawa Senators find themselves in a true “must win” game.
After a disappointing effort in Game 4 at Scotiabank Place, the Sens look to extend their season in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semi-final with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Nobody is giving this team a chance after an ugly loss on Wednesday night and the Pesky Sens wouldn’t have it any other way.
Everything that could go wrong for the Senators did in Game 4.
Despite being up 2-1 at the end of twenty minutes, you could tell the Senators were playing with fire. If not for the play of Craig Anderson, this game could have been ugly right off the bat. The good news is, they ain't dead yet.
Every game the Sens play from here on out could appropriately be labelled the biggest game of their season.
The Ottawa Senators look to build off an electrifying win on Sunday night as they play Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Pittsburgh Penguins. After a two day break, the Senators will be looking to use a raucous crowd at Scotiabank Place to draw even before heading back to Pittsburgh for Game 5 on Friday night.
For the second straight game, the Ottawa Senators will play their biggest game of the season as they look to draw even in their series with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Some interesting speculation ahead of this game as rumours from Twitter suggest that there is a chance Mark Stone could draw into the Ottawa line up for the pivotal Game 4. An interesting decision if true. We'll know more when the Senators take their morning skate at 10:15 AM. Game day post coming in a little bit.
