Penguins 2 - Senators 5: Vetoed!

Sidney Crosby
'Twas not a good night at all for Sidney Crosby and the Penguins as the Sens smoked them by a 5-2 score.

Eric Cairns took a cheap spear-jab at giant Zdeno Chara. Chara dropped the gloves and then proceeded to beat the living snot out of Cairns.

Sidney Crosby took a borderline low hit from Andrej Meszaros. On the ensuing Power Play, Crosby, playing the point, coughed up the puck to Antoine Vermette who scored a pretty shorthanded goal.

The Ottawa Senators scored early Tuesday and held on for a 5-2 win over the Penguins.

Daniel Alfredsson fired a slap-shot past Sebastien Caron 2:33 into the game for a power-play goal.

Colby Armstrong tied the game 6:56 into the second period with a short-handed goal. He created a turnover in the Ottawa zone and the puck went to Ryan Malone. He slid a pass to Armstrong and he fired it past Ray Emery.

The Senators tallied a power-play goal 17 seconds when Andrej Meszaros fired a slap-shot past Caron.

Chris Kelly made it 3-1 with 7:29 to play when he flipped a shot past Caron.

Meszaros tallied a power-play goal to make it a 4-1 game 3:39 into the third.

Tomas Surovy cut it to 4-2 with 11:18 left in the game when he converted on a Senators turnover.

Antoine Vermette added a short-handed goal with 4:52 left to boost Ottawa’s lead to 5-2.
On the night, Crosby played 22:52 and finished with 1 assist, -1, 6 shots on goal, 4PIM, and 7 for 18 on faceoffs.
