Ottawa's comeback shakes up playoff race in East (The Associated Press)
- Updated: April 8, 2015
The race tightened significantly because of Ottawa’s stirring rally from a three-goal deficit against Pittsburgh. The Senators won 4-3 in overtime, pulling even with Boston for the second wild card and within one point of the slumping Penguins. ”We’ve got to wipe this one away,” Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby said. It’s up to us now, but we’ve got to forget this one pretty quick.” Pittsburgh hasn’t missed the playoffs since Crosby’s rookie season.
