Ottawa’s first goal of the game, by Daniel Alfredsson with 29 seconds remaining in regulation, tied game three of their Stanley Cup Playoff series with the Pittsburgh Penguins, and Colin Greening scored the game-winner 7:39 into the second extra period, as the Senators defeated the Pens 2-1 in double overtime in Ottawa on Sunday night.

The Penguins’ lead in the best-of-seven NHL Eastern Conference semifinal series is now two-games-to-one.  Game four will be played Wednesday at 7:30 PM in Ottawa.  Radio pregame airtime on 96.3 KQW will be 7:00 PM.

Tyler Kennedy scored Pittsburgh’s only goal late in the second period, but Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson stopped 49 other shots, including 18 in the overtime periods.  Penguins goalie Tomas Vokoun suffered his first loss of this postseason, even though he made 46 saves of 48 shots.

The Pens outshot the Sens 50-48.
