Alfredsson ties up game late

Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson, left, celebrates after scoring on Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Tomas Vokoun and tying the game with 29 seconds left.
  • The Senators were short-handed with key player Erik Karlsson in the box.
  • Daniel Alfredsson started and completed short-handed rush.
  • Senators tie game with 29 seconds left.
  • The Ottawa Senators seemed on the verge of going down 3-0 in their series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

    They went short-handed with 1:27 left in the game, but to make matters worse, the person called for slashing was Erik Karlsson. He’d be the person needed to lug the puck up ice if they were to have a chance.

    Enter captain Daniel Alfredsson.

    He started a short-handed rush by carrying the puck to his blue line and feeding Sergei Gonchar. As Gonchar carried the puck into the zone and passed to Milan Michalek, Alfredsson drove to the net. He was in perfect position to tip Michalek’s timing pass past Tomas Vokoun with 29 seconds left.

    Exactly six years earlier, Alfredsson scored in overtime against the Buffalo Sabres to earn the Senators a trip to the 2007 Stanley Cup Final.

    Sunday, he showed the same sense of dramatic timing.
