Goalie Matt Murray to start for Penguins in Game 4 vs. Senators

Ottawa Senators centre Derick Brassard scores against Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc Andre Fleury as defenseman Mark Streit tries to defend during the first period of game three of the Eastern Conference final in the NHL Stanley Cup hockey

"We have two great goalies", Sullivan said on Thursday. Fleury has earned the right to play between the pipes in Game 4 and redeem himself by helping the Penguins tie the series.

Murray, who suffered a lower-body injury during warm-ups before the opening game of their opening round National Hockey League playoff series against the Columbus Blue Jackets, finally returning to the Penguins line-up as a back-up to Marc-Andre Fleury at the end of their second-round series against the Washington Capitals.

The Pittsburgh Penguins couldn't do what the Ottawa Senators did in game 1 in Pittsburgh, and that is weather the storm.

The Ottawa Senators regained the lead in the Eastern Conference finals with a convincing 5-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins at Canadian Tire Centre on Wednesday night.

He was the team's intended started heading into the postseason but suffered a groin injury while warming up prior to their first playoff game. Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said he would stick to his usual routine of announcing the starting goalie on the morning of game day, leaving the mystery open for another day. He performed well as the club's No. 1 goalie this season - posting a.923 save percentage in 49 games - but could face some rust after a lengthy absence from the crease. You certainly take that for what it's worth, and you move on because Game 4 is not going to be that. "I don't think there's anything wrong with that", he added.

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.

Sullivan explained that Marc-Andre Fleury wasn't happy with the decision but said, "he's a professional" and will handle it as such moving forward. So, I think just make sure we're hungry. He has a calm demeanor about him. I think it dictates the whole game. "He's had a lot of practice time in the last couple of weeks". Dumoulin scored at 11:30, the result of a deflected shot off the skate of Ottawa's Dion Phaneuf. Maybe their old buddy Clarke MacArthur could have made peace, but he was busy doing other things. The Sens play an extremely defensive brand of hockey designed by head coach Guy Boucher, who instilled such a mindset when he took over as head coach last May.

Game five is in Pittsburgh on Sunday. "We're trying to make lineup decisions on a nightly basis or a game-by-game basis that give us the best chance to win. I think we have to be ready right from the start of the puck and we simply have to be better".

MVP to this point in the playoffs or not, Game 3 might have put Fleury on the bench for good.

"They were the better team tonight for two periods and they deserved the game", Boucher said. "We scored some goals". The 27-year-old was crunched into the boards on a risky hit from Bobby Ryan, one that drew a penalty only on Ian Cole, who throttled Ryan in retaliation. Ryan somehow escaped a charging penalty on the play, and Cole drew the only call for roughing. Justin Schultz missed the game with an upper-body injury. Only 34 seconds earlier, Brassard's fourth of the playoffs had given the Senators 3-0 advantage.

He didn't score on the initial shot, but banged in the follow-up for the 2-0 lead. Guentzel had two assists. The Senators are listed with odds of -105 at home, while the over/under total has been set at 5 goals. Hoffman got it going by capitalizing on Turris' shot that bounced awkwardly wide of the goal. Much of that sample also came while Pittsburgh, which is 6-2 in its last eight home playoff games, had the services of Kris Letang (out with neck surgery) on defense. Though Pittsburgh says otherwise, unsafe scoring chances have been limited for just about everyone, including Rocket Richard trophy victor Sidney Crosby. "It's not like the old days where - I don't want to say they didn't key on the top players - but you're keying on the top players now".
