FIRST PERIOD

1. PENS: Emery stops the first shot of the game, but the rebound trickles behind him and Malone is there to tap it into the open net. Pens 1, Sens 0.

SECOND PERIOD

3. SENS: After the Penguins turn the puck over in the Ottawa zone, the Senators get a break. Fleury stops Kelly, but the rebound and an empty net greet Chara. Sens 2, Pens 1.

4. SENS: On the power play, Smolinski tips a shot from the point by Meszaros. Sens 3, Pens 1.

5. SENS: Again on the power play, Neil takes the puck to the net and after his second whack at it, Schaefer comes in and flips in the rebound. Sens 4, Pens 1.

6. PENS: Boguniecki steams down the right wing and rips a shot from the top of the circle over Emery's right shoulder. Sens 4, Pens 2.

THIRD PERIOD

7. SENS: On a smooth move, Schaefer comes off the boards and lifts a nice backhander over Fleury's catching hand. Sens 5, Pens 2.

NOTES

Among the visitors to Scotiabank Place yesterday morning was 67's goaltending coach Tom Dempsey and goaltender Danny Battochio. Also in the 67's entourage was owner Jeff Hunt. Dempsey has had Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury as one of his students ... With C Mike Fisher out for last night's game with the flu, the Senators called up Steve Martins from their Binghamton farm club and he did a good job ... The Senators were also without RW Brian McGrattan (swollen eye) ... C Chris Kelly left the game in the second period after getting levelled with a good open-ice hit by Pittsburgh defenceman Brooks Orpik ...The Senators play the Rangers in The Big Apple tomorrow night.

Sun Rating: 2 out of 5
