Pens suffer frustrating setback to Sens in OT

by Sam Kasan @PensInsideScoop / Penguins Team Reporter

KANATA, Ontario - The Pens suffered a 2-1 overtime loss to the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night at Canadian Tire Centre. But the team deserved a better fate. 

The Pens were the better team throughout much of the 61:20 minutes of play. They forced most of the play in the offensive zone, racked up a 36-29 edge in shots - including 16-7 in the first period - and generated the higher number of quality scoring chances.

Letang leads the Penguins in shots on goal with 87. That's rarefied air on a team that includes offensive juggernauts like Sidney Crosby, Phil Kessel and Evgeni Malkin.

Letang credits assistant coach Sergei Gonchar for showing him how to get more rubber on net. Few did that better than Gonchar, a former defenseman and a Stanley Cup winner with the Penguins in 2009.
