In 2013 on this date, a big 7-3 win for the Penguins gave them a 3-1 series lead en route to the Eastern Conference Final.

After starting the series 2-0 and dropping Game 3 in double overtime, the Penguins were hoping to keep the Senators from evening the series.

A quick start for the Senators and Milan Michalek got things going for the Penguins.

James Neal would tie the game but Kyle Turris would put the Senators back ahead before the end of the first period.

Two quick goals in the second period got the Penguins the lead back and they never turned to look back after this.

Another James Neal goal to start the third, and then three goals within 2 minutes stretched things to 7-2 to really get out of control.

A late Daniel Alfredsson goal didn't do much for anything.

Infamously, after this game when Alfredsson was asked if the Senators could come back in the series, he said “probably not.”

He was right.
