OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) Jean-Gabriel Pageau might not have seen the goal that capped his `legendary game' for the Ottawa Senators.

Pageau scored a career-high four goals, including the winner 2:54 into the second overtime to lift the Senators to a 6-5 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday, giving Ottawa a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

"I think I closed my eyes when I shot and thankfully it went in," Pageau said of the winner. "I was on a cloud and it's a moment I'll never forget."


Pens chase Holtby, grab 2-0 lead on Caps

WASHINGTON (AP) When Sidney Crosby wasn't beating the Washington Capitals putting the puck through his legs, he was doing it belly down on the ice.

No matter the unconventional plays or style of game, Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins are rolling after beating the Capitals 6-2 in Game 2 Saturday night to take a 2-0 lead in the second-round series between the NHL's top two teams. Crosby set up two goals and Phil Kessel and Jake Guentzel each scored two as Pittsburgh chased reigning Vezina Trophy winner and finalist Braden Holtby to go home in total command.

Ducks head to Edmonton in 0-2 hole

Predators go home in 1-1 tie with Blues

In a best-of-seven series, every road team talks about the need to earn a split in the first two games in order to steal home-ice advantage.

The Nashville Predators did just that in their Western Conference semifinal series with the St. Louis Blues, but they had reason to feel a little empty as they left Scottrade Center on Friday night. Leading 2-1 after Ryan Ellis' early third-period marker, Nashville couldn't hold back St. Louis' late push and allowed pair of goals to drop a 3-2 decision.

Preds' Fiala breaks leg, playoffs done

The 20-year-old Fiala was hit by Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo and went hard into the boards behind the St. Louis net at 1:46 of the second period Wednesday night.

Without going into much detail, McPhee said talks have focused on which players teams would prefer the Golden Knights either select or don't.

Bruins bringing back Cassidy as coach

BOSTON (AP) Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney was quick to remove head coach Bruce Cassidy's interim tag, making the move days after the team lost its first-round playoff series.

"I think the way the team responded to his message, we had an aggressive bent to our game, we scored more goals, we didn't lose defensive structure in our foundation," Sweeney said Thursday, a day after announcing the move. "Our penalty killing remained to be tops in the league; our power play got better as the season went along. To me it spoke to the change that our team responded to ... and I felt very comfortable in moving forward that Bruce should do a great job."
