Entering Saturday night’s contest with the Penguins at Scotiabank Place, the backpedaling Ottawa Senators had lost three straight, including an embarrassing 5-1 shellacking at the hands of Montreal on Friday.

Forwards and Defensemen
Entering Tuesday night’s contest with Ottawa at CONSOL Energy Center, the Pittsburgh Penguins were in desperate need of a win.

Maybe the closed door meeting held by the players after the horrible performance against the Lightning helped, or maybe it was something else. The Pens played a better game today against the Thrashers.
