Super-Duper series finish

Pascal Dupuis had quietly had a strong series for the Penguins in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal against the Ottawa Senators, even if the score sheet didn’t show it.
Dupuis was finally rewarded when he fired a rolling puck past goalie Pascal Leclaire in overtime for the game-winner in a 4-3 victory over the Senators Saturday night at Scotiabank Place.
It was the second consecutive year the Penguins rallied from a 3-0 deficit in Game 6 of a first-round series, and Trib beat writer Rob Rossi says the Penguins were left asking, How did that happen?
With Ruslan Fedotenko a minus-3 in two games, the Penguins instead turned to AHL call-up Chris Conner for a spark.
Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun says the Senators were banged, beaten and, most of all, heartbroken by the defeat.
The season-ending loss left some Senators distraught.
And Ottawa captain Daniel Alfredsson feeling twice the pain.
The Sun’s Don Brennan says Pascal Dupuis will be a name that haunts Ottawa.
ESPN’s Scott Burnside says the Game 6 victory showed that the Penguins are back.
And Sports Illustrated’s Michael Farber believes it they might even be better
