The Penguins still lead their Eastern Conference semifinal series two games to one.

Down 1-0 with less than a minute remaining in the third period, Daniel Alfredsson scored a short-handed goal with 33 seconds left to tie the game at one.

“We were just calm,” Anderson said of the Senators’ mood heading into overtime. “We had tied it up. We had momentum. We felt like the fans really rallied behind us.

Craig Anderson made 49 saves for the Senators, including 18 in both overtimes.  Penguins goalie Tomas Vokoun suffered his first loss since taking over for Mark-Andre Fleury

“Whether you win or lose, you always turn the page quickly and concentrate on the next one,” Penguins captain Sidney Crosbo said. “Obviously it’s disappointing, but we will bounce back.”

Game 4 of the best-of-seven series is Wednesday night in Ottawa.
