A powerplay goal for each team kept the score tied at the end of the first between the Senators and Canadiens.

With the series tied at one win a piece, the Ottawa Senators and the Montreal Canadiens headed to Canada's capital city (that's Ottawa, my fellow Americans) to see who would take game three and a lead in the series.

The Senators struck first at home on this powerplay goal from captain Daniel Alfredsson:

It was a rough and penalty-filled period, with six minor penalties called against the Senators and four going against the Canadiens. With each team already having one powerplay goal in the game, this is shaping up to be a special teams showcase.

Montreal led in shots at the end of the first 12-11.
