NHL playoffs roundup: Senators beat up Canadiens

After getting his first NHL hat trick, Jean-Gabriel Pageau was left with a bloody smile after the host Ottawa Senators’ Game 3 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday night.

The 20-year-old rookie lost a tooth in a fight-filled, emotional 6-1 win.

The teams combined for 236 penalty minutes and nine players were given a game misconduct. The Senators have a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series and Game 4 is Tuesday night in Ottawa.

Pageau, with his first career playoff goal, gave the Senators a 2-1 lead early in the second as he slipped between defensemen P.K. Subban and Andrei Markov to beat Carey Price over the shoulder.

Pageau is not likely to forget the goal as he was hit in the mouth by Subban on the goal and lost a tooth. Players could be seen looking for the tooth on the ensuing goal celebration.

‘‘I might put it under my pillow and see what happens,’’ Pageau kidded.

The third period started out with the Senators leading, 2-1, but after Pageau’s second goal of the night and a Kyle Turris goal at 7:00, emotions overflowed and a line brawl broke out at center ice.

Pageau, who was born in Ottawa, scored his second of the game at 1:18 of the third period to give the Senators a 3-1 lead.

Turris’s goal put the game out of reach. On the ensuing faceoff, four fights broke out.

The Senators ended up with the man advantage and Jakob Silfverberg scored on the power play as he beat goalie Carey Price up high to make it 5-1 only eight seconds after Turris’s goal.

More penalties were taken and at one point Ottawa was left with just five players on the bench, while Montreal had six.

Wild 3, Blackhawks 2 — Jason Zucker scored at 2:15 of overtime to give host Minnesota the win over Chicago, pulling the Wild within 2-1 in the Western Conference quarterfinal series.

Zach Parise scored for the Wild early in the third period, but Duncan Keith got one back for the Blackhawks with 2:46 left in regulation.

Penguins 5, Islanders 4 — Chris Kunitz scored his second power-play goal of the game 8:44 into overtime, off the third assist of the day by Sidney Crosby, and Pittsburgh rode a slew of ups and downs to victory over the Islanders at Uniondale, N.Y., that gave the top-seeded Penguins a 2-1 lead in the first-round playoff series.

Sharks 5, Canucks 2 — Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture each scored twice to spoil Cory Schneider’s return to the nets for Vancouver as host San Jose won its third straight game to open the playoffs.
