Did You Know?
  • This is the fourth time in the past seven years the Penguins and Senators will meet in the playoffs, but the first time it happens past the opening round of the playoffs. For the Penguins this has been topped only by the Washington Senators (5 in 6 years and 7 in 11) and for the Senators only by the Toronto Maple Leafs (4 in 5).
  • This match-up makes the Penguins tied as the most common opponent in the playoffs for the Senators along with the Buffalo Sabres (1996-97, 1998-99, 2005-06, & 2006-07) and Toronto Maple Leafs (1999-2002, 2003-04). For the Penguins this moves the Senators into a tie with Boston and the NY Islanders for 4th most frequent playoff opponent with 4 each; only Washington (8), Philadelphia (6), & New Jersey (5) have been more frequent foes.
  • When the Penguins franchise was the same age as the current Ottawa Senators their most common playoff foe was the St. Louis Blues (3).
  • The first trade between the Penguins and Senators was completed on April 7, 1995 when the Penguins sent Martin Straka to Ottawa for Norm MacIver and Troy Murray. Straka played 49 games for the Senators before having brief appearances with the Islanders and Panthers before returning to Pittsburgh in 1997 as a free agent.
  • The original Ottawa Senators last won the Stanley Cup in 1926-27, which was the 2nd season in the NHL for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
  • The most veteran playoff performer for the Ottawa Senators is Sergei Gonchar, with 130 NHL playoff games under his belt - 60 for the Penguins and 12 for the Senators (along with 7 for the Bruins and 51 for the Capitals).
  • The most veteran playoff performer for the Pittsburgh Penguins is Chris Kunitz with 90 NHL playoff games (55 for the Penguins; 35 for the Ducks).
  • Craig Anderson turns 32 on May 21st, the day prior to Game 4 of this series. Entering these playoffs Anderson and Vokoun, who will combine for a combined 68 years old, entered these NHL playoffs with a combined 25 playoff games between the two. This is both goalie's first trip out of the first round.
  • Entering these playoffs Marc-Andr้ Fleury had 43 playoff victories, 14 more than the next highest remaining goaltender in these playoffs (Lundqvist with 29). Fleury's 43 wins entering these playoffs was 2nd most amongst all active goalies in the NHL behind only Martin Brodeur's 113. If Tomแš Vokoun starts for the Penguins then Brodeur alone will have more wins than all goalies remaining had entering these playoffs (Lundqvist (29), Niemi (25), Quick (20), Howard (13), Holtby (7), Anderson (5), Crawford (5), & Vokoun (3) combined for 107 playoff wins between them. Of course this is the second round so now Fleury has merely 12 more wins than Lundqvist and that octuplet of goalies has 137 wins between them now.
  • Marc-Andr้ Fleury and Tomแš Vokoun became the first goalie tandem to post shutouts in the same playoff series since Chico Resch and Billy Smith did so for the 1979 New York Islanders.
  • Tomแš Vokoun's use of the #92 this season is the highest number ever worn by a goaltender in the NHL.
  • In 20 regular season games against the Senators Tyler Kennedy has 11 goals (tied for the most against any team, shared with the Flyers which took 30 games). Despite this Kennedy has 0 goals in 8 playoff games against the Senators and only 2 points.
  • Sidney Crosby's lowest goals and points per game ratio against Eastern Conference teams is against the Senators - scoring only 6 goals and 25 points in 24 regular season meetings...despite that he has 9 goals and 27 points in 14 career playoff games against the Senators.
  • The Penguins now hold a 156-133 record in the playoffs with a series record of 29-24. The Ottawa Senators hold a playoff record of 59-63 and a series record of 9-13.
  • Ottawa's win in the first round was their first series win in the playoffs since defeating the Buffalo Sabres in the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals. Pittsburgh's win was their first since the 2010 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Ottawa Senators.
  • Brooks Orpik's game-and-series-winning goal against the Islanders on Saturday was not only his first playoff goal (in his 78th playoff game), it was his first career game-winning goal (in 709 career games across regular season and playoffs). For comparison's sake 3 of Beau Bennett's 4 career goals have been game-winners.
  • Sorry for the half-assed retread of a YouTube-only theme, I used Daft Punk for a theme a couple/few years ago and I really hate re-using themes, but given the short-notice nature of the GDT and the fact that Random Access Memories is streaming on iTunes right now a week before release I figured it was only appropriate...also it allows me to slack on the DYK stuff since it's already been done!
  • Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo comprise the duo of Daft Punk. Their first band was formed in 1987 along with Laurent Brancowitz and was named after a Beach Boys song, Darlin'. Darlin's existence was brief and one review dubbed one of their two live shows as "a daft punky thrash". The review gave the duo their next name, while Brancowitz left to join another little band that would go nowhere - Phoenix.

Sid only had 5 min of icetime that period...

Randy Butternubs 05-14-2013 09:19 PM

Roenick says they were coming. They were coming. They were coming. They were coming.

That's not a bad position to be in.

Cardboard Orpik 05-14-2013 09:20 PM

Roenick forgot his meds today.

Sid is not playing that well after the first 10 minutes of the game. Terrible in the circle.

He has more ice time than every forward not named Dupuis, and Dupuis only has more because of the PK.

OGBobbyFarnham 05-14-2013 09:21 PM

We're doing great boxing out and collapsing to the house.
Special teams are where they need to be.

I'd insert Jokinen in game 2 just based on faceoffs.

Healy does great analysis on Crosby's game/in game on CBC.

If things aren't going offensively 5on5, this team seems to stop caring. That has to stop.

Hard to come forever.

Seems like the plan worked

TheStinger 05-14-2013 09:21 PM

Milbury is an ass to Roenick always.

Tafkak 05-14-2013 09:21 PM

I thought it was a great period by the Pens. The Sens sat back and played the trap and had the puck in our zone a lot, but they didn't have any quality scoring chances and pretty much all of the shots were from the perimeter. Very little forecheck by the Sens.

Tasty Biscuits 05-14-2013 09:22 PM

Having these clowns yell over each other... really helping to grow the game!

My mom was just saying "I miss the telestration... I actually learned stuff then."

Sad but true

heretik27 05-14-2013 09:22 PM

lol I think the penalty was on the weak side myself, but I'll take it. It looked like two guys battling for position of the loose puck.

Not gonna worry about the past though, these refs can't make up their mind how they're going to call the game. They let Orpik destroy Conacher and then call that flimsy penalty... it's not really consistent. Just look at the hit from behind on Iginla behind the net if people think it's only being called one way.

Shrimper 05-14-2013 09:22 PM

Get an early goal in the third and it should be ours barring a choke of epic proportions.

joey23 05-14-2013 09:22 PM


Guins71 05-14-2013 09:23 PM

amazing how passionate you can become when you hate a team, eh roenick? Sounded like me talking about the flyers

jigglysquishy 05-14-2013 09:23 PM

Just got home from work. How has the team looked?

That won't happen...we're not the leafs...

ok no prevent d

And then a Wings fan claimed Orpik left his feet. lol
While no fans have more experience watching players leave their feet and not receive penalties than Red Wing fans, I'm gonna chalk that up to prejudice. They're still pissed at Orpik for Franzen kneeing himself in the preseason a few years back.

vodeni 05-14-2013 09:23 PM

this is the kind of game where we need third line to establish forecheck, move Joe V with cooke and Kennedy, to gain some offense time let Sutter coast on fourth, drop Iggy down to 3rd and bring Morrow up with Duper and Sid, Morrow becomes worker and Duper the sniper

Malkin had 4:57 in the first and 6:12 in the second.
Sid had 7:06 in the first and 5:35 in the second.

Dan is probably trying to balance them out.

I think the call on Conacher may have been atonement for the bad call on Neal.
