A second period set to be filled with hot play and hotter tempers seemed to even out pretty well although the Penguins are generating better chances offensively than the Senators. No goals came through in the second period but it wasn’t without it’s pieces of drama, including a bad penalty taken by Matt Cooke.
The power play is the only part of Ottawa’s game that’s able to do anything slightly offensive as the Sens are more concerned with making sure the Pens don’t completely steam roll through them offensively. It’s probably not a bad idea, but at some point the Senators are going to want to, you know, win the game. Relying on power plays to try and generate offense is a sketchy proposition.
The Penguins outshot Ottawa 11-7 in the second period and are outshooting them 21-13 through two periods.
