Penguins knot series with 1-0 Game 2 victory over Senators

Posted: Updated:
PITTSBURGH (AP) -

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 23 shots for his second shutout of the playoffs and the Pittsburgh Penguins evened their Eastern Conference final against Ottawa with a 1-0 victory in Game 2 on Monday night.
    
Phil Kessel beat Craig Anderson with a wrist shot 13:05 into the third period as Pittsburgh finally broke through against the Ottawa's packed-in defense.
    
The Penguins dominated play for long stretches but couldn't solve Anderson until late in the third. Kessel's initial shot hit Ottawa's Jean-Gabriel Pageau and came right back to him. Kessel fired hard and low by Anderson for his sixth - and certainly most important - goal of the playoffs.
    
Game 3 is Wednesday in Ottawa.
    
Anderson finished with 28 saves but received little help in front of him.
