Kunitz's double-OT goal sends Penguins back to Stanley Cup

Kunitz's double-OT goal sends Penguins back to Stanley Cup

Kunitz scored 5:09 into the second overtime to lead the Penguins to a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. The victor earns a berth to the 2017 Stanley Cup Final to play the Western Conference champion Nashville Predators.

The Senators are 0-5 in Game 7s, the last setback coming in the first round to the New York Rangers in 2012. Yet here the Senators are, alive and still skating with a chance to eliminate the deeper, more experienced and more explosive Stanley Cup champions.

No team has reached the Cup final in consecutive years since the Penguins (also led by Crosby) and Red Wings in 2008 and '09, but even more alluring for Crosby's Penguins is the chance to become the first repeat Cup victor in the salary cap era.

The game was almost halfway through regulation before the Penguins scored the first goal off a two-on-one against Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson. "Whether or not he scores, that's something that we can't always control, but what he can do - and I know Rusty knows this - he's going to control his effort and his attitude and his focus and conviction, and when a player controls all of those things, he puts himself in the best position to be successful". Boucher favors discipline over daring, and while the stat sheet looked awfully one-sided in Game 6, the scoreboard did not.

Whatever it is, he's just trying to make this run last as long as possible.

OPEC crude production rises in April - IEA
The IEA maintained its 2017 global oil demand growth forecast at 1.3 million b/d, with demand reaching 97.9 million b/d. Data also showed OPEC is estimated to have earned more in Q1, 2017 while pumping fewer barrels.

"I don't think we proved anything to ourselves", said the 30-year-old Ryan, eager to return to Ottawa after the bitter defeat. "It's a great opportunity". Goalie Craig Anderson, 36, redeemed himself after their brutal 7-0 drubbing in game five where he let four Penguins goals past him in the first quarter before getting pulled from net duty.

It was Kunitz's second goal of the game. Pittsburgh Penguins' Chris Kunitz (14) celebrates scoring the game-winning goal with Marc-Andre Fleury (29) during the second overtime period of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final in the NHL Stanley Cup hockey playoffs in. "They were the better team". "It could be the way that we've come together, the way that the team has been changed".

It was the second goal of Thursday's contest for three time Stanley Cup victor Kunitz.

"He's one of those guys that's able to help us do that and he has been able to, even when he wasn't playing", Boucher said. "I just tried to lay it there for him".

Justin Schultz then scored on a blast from the center point at 11:44 of the third on Pittsburgh's first power-play of the game to give the home team a 2-1 lead. He has 10 points (3 G, 7 A) in 15 playoff games.
