2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs Eastern Conference Finals Game 3 Vs Ottawa Senators

The Ottawa Senators came out strong as Mike Hoffman scored 48 seconds into the game to give them a 1-0 lead.    Marc Methot scored midway through the period to give them a 2-0 lead.   Derrick Brassard increased the Senators lead to 3-0 and 24 seconds later Zach Smith scored to give Ottawa a 4-0 lead.    Marc-Andre Fleury was pulled in favor of Matt Murray.   The only goal of the second period was scored by Kyle Turris to give Ottawa a 5-0 lead.  In the third period, Sidney Crosby scored on the power play to break Craig Anderson’s shutout bid.  Ottawa wins the game 5-1 and to take a 2 games to 1 series lead.       What happened to the Penguins this evening?  Was this a combination of bad luck and bad bounces.  Or was it the Senators changing their style of play. Who does Head Coach Mike Sullivan start in goal for game four?  Does Marc-Andre Fleury start after giving up four goals or Matt Murray who was pretty good?   Whomever the Penguins start in goal they can not fall behind early in the game.  Game 4 will be on Friday night at the Canadian Tire Center with the face off at 8:00 P.M.
