Ottawa, ON, Canada (4E Sports) - Jarome Iginla and James Neal each scored twice as the Pittsburgh Penguins routed the Ottawa Senators 7-3 at the Scotiabank Place for a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Sidney Crosby, Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis added goals, and Tomas Vokoun made 30 saves for the Penguins.
Milan Michalek, Kyle Turris and Daniel Alfredsson scored for the Senators.
Daniel Alfredsson fed the puck up the middle to a streaking Michalek, who broke through the defense and beat Vokoun low on the glove to open the scoring for Ottawa at 2:29 of the first period.
Neal tied it with 5:04 left in the period, picking up the loose puck in the slot and putting it in the back of the net.
Turris put Ottawa back in front off a rebound with 3:45 left in the first.
The Penguins tied it early in the second when Kunitz got behind the defense and went in alone to beat Anderson. Less than a minute later, Anderson gave up a rebound on Kris Letang's shot that landed on the tape of Iginla's stick to make it 3-2.
Neal started the third-period flurry with a power-play goal at 1:59. Dupuis added a short-handed goal at 8:07 to make it 5-2. Crosby followed at 8:39 to become the fastest active player to reach 40 career playoff goals, and Iginla scored on a power play at 9:53 to make it 7-2.
Alfredsson capped the scoring with a power play at 14:14 of the third to reduc the lead to 7-3.
