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

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
