The Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Ottawa Senators 4-3 in overtime Saturday to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, according to both the New York Times and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Pittsburgh's Pascal Dupuis scored 9:56 into overtime to upset a crowd at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa during the sixth game of the first round, both sources said.
Pittsburgh won the series 4-2, with two of the regular time goals scored by forward Matt Cooke and another by defenseman Alexei Ponikarovski, both sources said.
With the win, the Penguins are guaranteed at least two more games at their longtime home, Mellon Arena, the Times said. They will be moving into the new Consol Energy Center next season.
It is still unknown who the Penguins will face in the quarterfinals of the playoffs, both sourcs said, as the winner of the series between the Buffalo Sabres and Boston Bruins is yet to be determined.
