Best of NHL playoffs: Sunday

After 56 games in these playoffs, the wait was over on Sunday. The first double-overtime game was here.

And it almost didn't happen.

Captain Daniel Alfreddson scored a short-handed goal with 29 seconds left in the game to force overtime, then Colin Greening hit a rebound home at 7:39 of double overtime as the Senators stunned the Penguins 2-1 at Scotiabank Place.

Check out all the highlights:

 

The Senators picked up their first win of the series and now trail 2-1 with Game 4 on Wednesday.

Working overtime in Boston, too?

The Bruins posted a dominant 5-2 win over the New York Rangers to pull ahead to two games to none in the Eastern Conference semifinals on Sunday night.

But Jaromir Jagr didn’t see that fact as enough to warrant a night off.

The forward is in the midst of a playoff scoring drought that dates back to his time with the Philadelphia Flyers, and it’s possible he’s hoping to contribute more to the B’s through the rest of the series.

Jagr was seen on the ice at TD Garden around 8 p.m., more than three hours after the Bruins’ win over the Rangers, in front of 17,565 empty seats practicing alone in a Bruins beanie hat.

Light that large lamp!

Imagine if this light was behind Craig Anderson.

Fun stuff was going down in Pittsburgh while their Penguins hit the road for Game 3 against the Ottawa Senators.

Every time the Penguins score now in the playoffs, this happens:

FYI, that's the Gulf Tower for those keeping tabs at home.

Welcome to the party, Rick Nash

Rick Nash took nine games to join the playoff party.

The New York Rangers star led the team with 21 goals in the regular season, and after being unable to find the back of the net in a seven-game opening-round series against the Washington Capitals, he finally made due in Game 2 against the Bruins.

But the Rangers lost 5-2 to fall into a 2-0 hole against Boston. Fortunately for Nash, his tally was of highlight-reel fashion.
