STANLEY CUP PLAYOFF RECAP MAY 17 2017

FOUR-GOAL FIRST PERIOD HELPS SENATORS TAKE 2-1 SERIES LEAD
The Senators scored four goals in the first period – including three in a span of 2:18 – en route to a 5-1 win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final. Ottawa improved to 5-2 at Canadian Tire Centre during the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs, including four consecutive victories.

The Senators established a franchise playoff record for fastest three goals, eclipsing the previous mark set in Game 1 of the 2002 Conference Semifinals at TOR (4:00). The NHL record for fastest three goals by one team in the postseason is 23 seconds, set by the Maple Leafs in Game 2 of the 1979 Preliminary Round vs. ATL.

When teams are tied 1-1 in a best-of-seven series in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the winner of Game 3 holds an all-time series record of 205-99, including a 3-2 mark this postseason.
