'The key to the victory was Emery, who has been knocked for playing poorly, particularly in Ottawa's 7-6 overtime loss in Game 1 when he allowed seven goals on 23 shots. Emery was at his sharpest of the series on Thursday in keeping the Senators' season alive. He made numerous strong saves, three times foiling Ales Kotalik's shots from the slot, including one with 8 minutes left.'
