Capitals on high alert for Senators' new late-game urgency

Suddenly, the Ottawa Senators have developed a finishing kick.

The Senators, who up until Jan. 13 were last in the NHL in third-period scoring, have scored a league-leading nine third-period goals since.

That hasn't necessarily translated into victories, but it did put a scare into the host Pittsburgh Penguins before Ottawa fell 6-4 on Thursday night. The Senators will continue their trip Saturday when they play the Washington Capitals.
