The Senators know that the Penguins will want to rebound in Game 4 and try to take control of this series.
"We can't stray too far from our game plan," Ottawa defenseman Marc Methot said. "Last game in particular we were so strong defensively and that's a huge key. We know we're going to get our opportunities offensively in their own zone."
For the Penguins, getting a split in Ottawa means a chance to clinch the series back home.
"I think every game the more the series goes on the more important each one gets," Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said. "You can see the desperation they have. They want to make sure it's 2-2 going back to Pittsburgh and obviously we know the scenario is to come here and get one of two on the road and go back home with a chance to finish off the series would be great.
"I don't think we have to change anything to do that. Our desperation's been there, our compete level has been there and we believe that if we play the same way as last game and limit a few mistakes that we have a good chance of getting the win."
