Senators 4, Penguins 3 (OT - SO - 2-1)

Another two goal third period lead... gone.  This time it cost the Pens a point.

Here's the good news:
The Sens aren't in the playoff race.
The Pens are tied for 5th with Montreal.  Each have 80 points.

Here's the not-so-good news:
The Habs have a game in hand on the Pens.
The Panthers are in the 9th spot with 78 points.

The Pens have to keep earning points.  Specifically, they need TWO points.  Finding a way to close out these games when they have a lead in the third is critical.  They just don't have that down yet.

Next up:  The #1 team in the East comes to the Igloo when the Bruins visit the Igloo tomorrow.
