By now, you must be starting to wonder exactly what goes on inside the Senators dressing room during the second intermission of away games.

Do they pound energy drinks? Don rally caps? Or just congratulate each other for following the game plan to a tee.

For when they're trailing after 40 minutes, it seems, they have their opponents right where they want them.

Down a couple with a period left on Long Island Tuesday, veteran defenceman Chris Phillips had a laugh, then stood up and addressed the group. Following his words, the Senators bolted from their quarters and scored four unanswered goals for a 5-3 victory.

"Make sure you hashtag it 'pesky' Sens," Phillips told Sportsnet's Ian Mendes, a frequent Twitter user, as he left the ice.

Why pesky? Because It was the third time in their last three road games they had erased a two-goal deficit to steal at least a point, the second time in a row they departed the premises as outright victors.
