Pittsburgh Penguins take Game 4 with 7-3 romp over Ottawa Senators

OTTAWA - James Neal and Jarome Iginla each scored twice and the Pittsburgh Penguins took control of their Eastern Conference semifinal series by soundly beating the Ottawa Senators 7-3 in Game 4 on Wednesday.

The Penguins now hold a 3-1 series lead heading into a pivotal Game 5 in Pittsburgh on Friday.

Chris Kunitz, Pascal Dupuis and Sidney Crosby each added a goal for the Penguins.

Milan Michalek, Kyle Turris and Daniel Alfredsson scored for Ottawa.

Senators goaltender Craig Anderson was pulled in the third after allowing six goals and replaced by Robin Lehner.

Ottawa opened the scoring with Michalek's short-handed goal, but then struggled to hold on to the lead.

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
