The Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators combined for eight goals during the second period of the Penguins' 7-4 win. The flurry accounted for the most goals in a period by two teams since 1994, and fell just one goal shy of matching an NHL record.

Pittsburgh's five goals set a franchise record for most goals in a period during a playoff game on the road.
