Game 1 belonged to the Senators as they bested the Penguins 2-1 in overtime.
The Ottawa Senators did what they needed to do in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final. Bobby Ryan ended the 2-1 game in overtime with a real great individual effort to win a foot race in the offensive zone before putting the finish behind Marc-Andre Fleury and the Penguins.

While the end of the game was quite the rush, the rest of the time the Senators executed their system to near perfection. Jean-Gabriel Pageau had the game’s first goal with five minutes to play in the first. Ryan’s nifty behind-the-net pass was right on Pageau’s stick for the opening goal past Fleury.
It took another two periods for the game to get a second goal, as Evgeni Malkin’s skillful deflection finally bested Craig Anderson to take the game to overtime tied at 1-1.

Ryan’s game winner is Ottawa’s sixth overtime win in these playoffs in seven tries. The loss is also the Penguins’ first time trailing in a series so far this postseason.
Game 2 will be played in Pittsburgh on Monday evening.
We’ve already covered the gist of this info, but now we have the direct quote from EA CEO, Andrew Wilson.
“So we feel really good about it. Again, we came out early and said that we’ll be supporting the Nintendo Switch with our biggest title in FIFA. We have a tremendous relationship with Nintendo and have done for many, many years and are excited by the fact that they have come out very strong and are bringing in a whole new player base into the ecosystem. We continue to be bullish on it and are looking at other titles that we might bring to the Switch.”
