Penguins Defeat Senators 4-1 in First Game of NHL Playoff Series

May 14 (Bloomberg) -- The Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Ottawa Senators 4-1 in the first game of their National Hockey League Playoff series.

Paul Martin got the opening goal for the Penguins on a power play at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh. Colin Greening tied it for Ottawa and Evgeni Malkin also scored in the first period for the home team. Chris Kunitz added a third goal for Pittsburgh on a power play near the end of the second period and Pascal Dupuis scored a shorthanded goal in the third.

Pittsburgh also hosts Game 2 in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference series on May 17. The winner of the second-round matchup will face the Boston Bruins or the New York Rangers for a place in the Stanley Cup Final. That series gets under way May 16 in Boston.

Also tonight, the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings host the San Jose Sharks in the first game of their Western Conference series.
