The Pittsburgh Penguins made it all the way back to the Stanley Cup final with a double overtime win over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night, 3-2.

The Penguins won the game on a Chris Kunitz slap shot. It was Kunitz’s second goal that scraped by Senators goalkeeper Craig Anderson to lift the Penguins back to the final. Justin Schultz scored the other goal for Pittsburgh.

Mark Stone and Ryan Dzingel put goals on the board for Ottawa. Dzingel scored the game-tying goal with a little over five minutes to play in the third period. Anderson stopped 39 shots despite the loss.

Ottawa is now 0-6 in Game 7s all-time.

It is now up to the Penguins to win its second straight Stanley Cup and third since 2009.
