OTTAWA - Colin Greening scored 12:21 into double overtime as the Ottawa Senators edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 on Sunday in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Pittsburgh still leads the series 2-1, with Game 4 in Ottawa on Wednesday.

Tyler Kennedy scored with just over a minute to play in the second period to give the Penguins a 1-0 lead.

It looked as though Pittsburgh had earned a 1-0 victory but Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson scored a short-handed goal with 29 seconds left in regulation time.

That set the stage for Greening's overtime heroics.

Ottawa forward Jason Spezza, who hadn't played since Jan. 27 after undergoing back surgery to repair a herniated disc, lined up alongside Milan Michalek and Cory Conacher.
