After a win in Game 3, the Ottawa Senators are confident they can tie their series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Senators trail the Penguins 2-1 in their Eastern Conference semifinal series heading into Game 4 Wednesday.

"The next game is the biggest game of the year, that's the way it is," Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson said. "No matter what happens you treat it (as the biggest game) and when that's done you do the same for the next one."

The Senators' confidence in themselves and their ability to rebound has been the benchmark of their season. Ottawa's 2-1 double-overtime win Sunday night was just another example.

Alfredsson tied the game at 1-1 with 29 seconds remaining in regulation and Colin Greening went on to score the winner at 7:39 of the second overtime.
