The Penguins face a must-win situation as they trail the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series, 3-1.

Ottawa posted a 6-3 win in Game 1 on Wednesday. The Penguins rebounded for a 4-3 triumph in Game 2 on Saturday. However, the Senators scored four-straight goals Sunday to grab a 4-2 victory and added a tough 2-1 triumph in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

If the Penguins are able to win Thursday, they will force a Game 6 on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Mellon Arena.

Sidney Crosby is tied for third in playoff scoring with five points (3+2). Crosby and Jordan Staal are tired for second in the playoffs with three goals apiece.
