NHL nearing record for one-goal games this postseason

"When you lose, you're always looking to see what went wrong", said Kunitz, a three-time Cup victor.

Ottawa's Tom Pyatt scored a late goal in the third to bring the Senators within one, but Penguins goaltender Matt Murray shut the door on the Senators in the closing minutes of the game. Over the next eight that fell to 1.75 goals a game and, in the current series against the Ottawa Senators, which the Senators lead two games to one heading into Friday's Game 4, that statistic stands at a measly 1.0 goal per game.

Fleury had been stellar in the playoffs before Game 3 on Wednesday night when he surrendered four goals on just nine shots before being replaced by Murray. "That's been a hard decision for this coaching staff all year long, and as I said (Thursday) it's a good difficult decision to have because we have two guys that are as capable as they are. Or guys deserve lot of credit for the way they played", Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby said.

The Murray-Fleury decision was a "very difficult" one to make, Sullivan said, but "it's a good hard decision to have because we have two guys that are as capable as they are, and both of these guys have helped this team win all year long, and they're both high quality people and they're high quality goaltenders".

Banged up or not, with or without Fleury in the net, they simply have to start scoring. "We don't always expect them to agree with our decisions, but we hope that they respect our decision".

"I think everybody's frustrated", Turris said.

Will the Pittsburgh Penguins find a way to even up the series when they meet up with the Ottawa Senators tonight at 8PM ET in Game 4?

Murray had been sidelined with a lower-body injury prior to his return on Wednesday.

The Penguins, NHL can't get story straight on Sidney Crosby
He took a nasty spill in the first period when he was slammed into the end boards head-first while he tangled with Carlson. He played in Game 5, and did not appear to be missing anything from his game or showing any signs of distress.

"I think playoffs run hot and cold, so when you win you feel like you're on top of the world". When it's not going in for you, you've just got to keep it simple. Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury (29) chats with goalie Matt Murray (30) after being pulled during the first period of game three of the Eastern Conference final in the NHL Stanley Cup hockey pla. "But Wayne and I both thought that that seemed like the best overall team". "We believe in ourselves to the fullest extent". The Senators know they will probably need more than one goal per game to win the series. "It's out of my control, so I don't really think too much about it".

Senators are 4-0 in their last 4 home games. "It's just not going to happen", Clarke MacArthur said.

"They're a veteran team". They're a proven team.

The Senators were trying to push Pittsburgh to the brink of elimination but they were well aware the Penguins wouldn't go quietly into the night.

Organizing committee president Lee Hee-beomsaid Thursday that "we are ready to cooperate".

Kessel rifled his shot past Craig Anderson's left pad with 6 minutes, 55 seconds left in the third quarter to settle an attritional game at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. "Just like everyone else, he'll turn the page, and we will as a group and make sure we're better".

He chose those last words carefully - "we made it for Game 4" - because things can change. Both of these guys handle the decisions we make extremely professional.
