Leclaire gives Senators new hope against Penguins @NHLdotcom

OTTAWA (AP) -The Senators finally made good use of Pascal Leclaire.

Now Ottawa hopes its often inactive goalie can follow up his second win of 2010 with a third. With the Senators facing elimination in Game 5 against Pittsburgh on Thursday night, Leclaire set a franchise record with 56 saves in his first career playoff start.

Matt Carkner kept the Senators' season alive when he scored the winning goal 7:06 into the third overtime, setting up a return trip to Ottawa for Game 6 on Saturday night. The Penguins lead the series 3-2.
