Game 7 certainly lived up to the hype on Thursday night in Pittsburgh. The Penguins and Senators played a wild game that resulted in the defending champs coming away with a 3-2 victory in double overtime.

The first goal of the night came halfway into the second period from Pittsburgh’s Chris Kunitz, the man that would later serve as the hero:

Well, after 30 minutes of no goals in the game, we had two in 20 seconds, as Ottawa’s Mark Stone tied the game right back up:

It looked like the Penguins got the series winner when Justin Schultz scored this goal with 8:16 left in the third period:

But again, the Senators quickly responded, thanks to this goal by Ryan Dzingel just three minutes later:

That sent the game to overtime, and the first overtime saw the score remain tied at 2-2. Finally, with 14:51 remaining in the second overtime, Kunitz ended the series with his second goal of the night:

So, it will be the Penguins vs the Nashville Predators in the Stanley Cup Final. Game 1 of the series is set for Monday, May 29 at 8 PM ET in Pittsburgh.
