Ryan Dzingel found the back of the net in Ottawa's 3-2 2OT loss to Pittsburgh in Game 7 of the Western Conference Final.

Dzingel's marker at 14:41 of the third period is what extended the contest into extra time. It was his second goal and third point in 15 postseason games. He also had 14 goals and 32 points in 81 regular season contests.

Jean-Gabriel Pageau registered an assist in the Senators' 3-2 2OT loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 7 of the Western Conference Final.

Pageau came up big in the Senators' playoff run with eight goals and 10 points in 19 games. That's a huge from him offensively and it's one that we don't expect to lead to a significant boost in production in 2017-18. When gauging what he'll do going forward it would be better to look at his 33 points in 82 regular season games as a reference.

Craig Anderson allowed three goals on 42 shots in Thursday's 3-2 double overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Anderson was excellent in Game 6 and really good in Game 7, but it wasn't enough to carry the Senators to the Stanley Cup Final. The Sens fell behind 1-0 and 2-1 in tonight's game, but in both instances, they managed to come back to tie the game (Mark Stone and Chris Dzingel scored for the Sens). Pens forward Chris Kunitz put an end to Ottawa's season when he scored the game-winning goal at the 5:09 mark of the second overtime frame. Anderson finishes the playoffs with an 11-8 record with a 2.34 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage.

Erik Karlsson registered a pair of assists in Thursday's 3-2 double overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final.

The loss officially puts an end to Ottawa's playoff run. Karlsson picked up the primary assists on goals by Mark Stone (1-1) and Ryan Dzingel (2-2). The Sens captain finished the game with a plus-1 rating, two shots on goal and one hit in 39:33 of ice time. He finishes the postseason with two goals and an incredible 18 points in 19 contests. Karlsson did everything he could to get the Senators to the Stanley Cup Final, but in the end, his team came up one goal short.

Tommy Wingels will be a healthy scratch in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final against Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Wingels was on the ice for the pre-game warmup, but he didn't skate on any one of the lines during rushes. He has no points in nine games during the postseason. Chris Kelly will take his spot in the lineup. Jyrki Jokipakka, Chris Neil, Chris DiDomenico and Ben Harpur will also serve as healthy scratches.

Craig Anderson will be between the pipes for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final against Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

Anderson was absolutely incredible in Game 6, as he turned aside 45 of 46 shots in Ottawa's 2-1 win. He has an 11-7 record with a 2.36 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage this postseason. The Senators will likely need another outstanding performance from Anderson if they want to go to the Stanley Cup Final. The winner of tonight's game will take on Nashville in the cup final.

Colin White will be a healthy scratch in Game 7 Thursday night.

White drew into the lineup for Game 6, but only logged 2:39 minutes of ice time. Chris Kelly or Tommy Wingels will likely replace him as the Senators want to add someone with Game 7 experience to the lineup.

Mike Hoffman argued the Ottawa Senators can enter Game 7 without any pressure weighing on them.

"There’s no pressure on us. They’re the ones that are favored," Hoffman said. "For us, we just take it as another hockey game. We know it’s a Game 7 and there’s a lot of us that haven’t played in one of those at this level. But, we know the game plan, sticking to our system and trying to shut them down as best we can to give ourselves the best chance (to win)." It's true that not many people thought the Senators would get this far, so even if they loss Thursday night this will be seen as a remarkably good season for them. All the same, that's likely not much help right now as the thought of being just one win away from playing in the Stanley Cup Final is likely tough to just brush aside. With that in mind, it will be interesting to see if the Senators are indeed the team that play as if they have less pressure on them, given that the Penguins are the ones that have more experience to lean on.

Zack Smith will likely be tasked with trying to contain Penguins star Evgeni Malkin in Game 7.

Malkin had three assists in Game 5 and found the back of the net in Game 6. Smith took some of the blame for that Game 6 marker. "That was my mistake," said Smith. "As soon as I tried to strip him on the outside ... as soon as I did that I knew it was the wrong move. He’s probably their best player right now. He protects pucks so well, you just have to stay between him and the net at all times. You can’t (rush) the puck like I tried to do on that one." Smith will take that lesson into Game 7 Thursday night.

Kyle Turris had five shots and an assist in Ottawa's 2-1 win over Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.

He registered his fifth assist and ninth point of the playoffs to help the Senators avoid elimination at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Turris and Erik Karlsson had assists on a power-play goal by Bobby Ryan in the second period. The marker ended Ottawa's 0-for-29 drought during a two-man advantage.
May 24 - 8:33 AM

Fredrik Claesson earned his third assist of the postseason on Tuesday night.

He dropped the puck to Mike Hoffman, who wired a hard shot into the post behind Pittsburgh's Matt Murray and into the net for the game-winning goal in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final. Claesson made a good play on the marker by driving towards the goal. Clarke MacArthur had the other assist on Hoffman's winner to force Game 7 on Thursday night.
May 24 - 8:29 AM

Colin White made his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut on Tuesday night in Game 6 against Pittsburgh.

Unfortunately, he logged just 2:39 of ice time on seven shifts. He wasn't much of a factor in the contest, but he did almost score into his own net during his second shift. It wouldn't be a surprise if the Senators chose to go with some more experience in Game 7 on Thursday night.
May 24 - 8:20 AM

Bobby Ryan recorded his sixth goal of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs in Game 6 against Pittsburgh.

Ryan had a great start to the playoffs against Boston, slowed down versus the Rangers and now he has heated up again in the Eastern Conference Final. He has produced two goals and four assists in six matches opposing the Penguins. Ryan ended Ottawa's 0-for-29 drought on the power play when the Senators were given a two-man advantage in the second period on Tuesday night.
May 24 - 8:14 AM

Craig Anderson was outstanding in Ottawa's 2-1 win over Pittsburgh in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final.

What a response from Anderson, after he allowed four goals on 14 shots in Game 5. Anderson left the Penguins frustrated all night, as he turned aside 45 of the 46 shots Pittsburgh sent his way. Pens forward Evgeni Malkin opened the scoring in the second period, but Ottawa responded with two goals from Bobby Ryan and Mike Hoffman to get the win. Anderson now owns a 11-7 record with a 2.36 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage this postseason. The best-of-seven series is now tied up at three. Game 7 will be played in Pittsburgh on Thursday night. The winner of that game will take on Nashville in the Stanley Cup Final.

Mike Hoffman scored the game-winning goal in Ottawa's 2-1 win over Pittsburgh in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final on Tuesday.

The Penguins scored the first goal of the game, but Ottawa responded by goals by Bobby Ryan (second period) and Hoffman (early in the third frame). Hoffman's goal came on a blast from the faceoff circle. The Sens forward finished the game with two penalty minutes, two shots on goal and five hits in 16:20 of ice time. Hoffman has two goals and four points in his last four contests. He's up to five goals and five assists in 17 games this postseason. The best-of-seven series is now tied up at three. Game 7 will be played in Pittsburgh on Thursday night. The winner off that one will play Nashville in the Stanley Cup Final.
