The Pittsburgh Penguins scored four times in the third period on Wednesday night en route to a 7-3 win over the Senators in Ottawa and a 3-games-to-1 lead in their NHL Stanley Cup Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series.

The Penguins chased Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson, who played a superb first period, but left the game in the final frame with just 32 saves on 38 shots.  His relief, Robin Lehner, stopped three of the four shots he faced.

James Neal and Jarome Iginla both recorded a pair of goals, and  Kris Letang was credited with four assists.  Sidney Crosby, Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kunitz also scored for Pittsburgh.  Tomas Vokoun earned the win with 30 saves on 33 Ottawa shots.

Milan Michalek, Kyle Turris and Daniel Alfredsson scored for the Senators.

The series will return to Pittsburgh for game five on Friday night at 7:30 PM.  Radio pregame airtime on 96.3 KQW will be 7:00 PM.
