07:19 AM ET 05.20 | According to the box score, Colin Greening had a great night Sunday and into Monday morning, but it wasn't without some pain. Greening needed six stitches to close a gash on his left cheek after taking a wayward stick to the face early in the game. The euphoria of his goal was still settling in even as the Senators' medical staff were picking tiny bits of [fiberglass] out of his face. "You get a lot of adrenaline going through your body, but they were just small pieces," Greening said. "Like I said, the big pieces were all taken out." Greening scored 7:39 into double overtime to salvage a game for the Senators that looked to be going the other way with just seconds left on the clock in the third period.

Those fiberglass shards from the sticks are nasty. I learned that the hard way the first time I sawed down a stick without gloves on -- was picking the pieces out for a week!

Pretty gutsy win by the Sens last night.

Couldn't have been as bad as that Capitals player in the GEICO commercial.

I'm bummin that I missed it. I hope the Sens can make an exciting series out of it.

They wil, cause the Pens can't have it ANY OTHER WAY.

Any other team would have buried the win last night. Not the Pens. Just had to keep puck possession for 30 seconds and grind it out. Didn't have to score, etc.

Bylsma puts out a line that is his PP unit knowing they would pull their goalie. Bylsma = fail, especially if that game was a series changer.

I'm telling you, those commercials with the NHL players are becoming like the "Madden Curse"

Terrible job there. Unbelievable.

I can't even look at Bylsma the last few weeks. He makes me sick.

Can't always win with talent alone.

Anderson bounced back quite nicely. Vokoun's effort wasted.

Let's Go Pens!!

This is what happens when you get one of those discount "Joan Rivers" facelifts.

I'm pretty certain that the Rangers would have missed it.
The NYR power play has been abysmal since Leetch and Zubov left (or so it seems)
It isn't torts or Campbell or Renney or any of them....

The refs tried their best to alter the course of this series with that stupidly inept call against Karlsson with a minute and a half remaining. Justice was served though as the hockey gods smiled on the Sens. Now we have a series. Hopefully, it goes seven.

Especially when the refs are doing their best to give it to you with a minute and a half to go.

Karlsson is doing his best for the Academy Award though.

Nice kid, and a good player, but for his own sake he needs to tone down the acting.
