Pageau scored a career-high four goals, including the winner 2:54 into the second overtime to lift the Senators to a 6-5 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday, giving Ottawa a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.
Analysis: The 24-year-old Ottawa native also scored twice in the final 3:19 to tie the score. He tipped Zack Smith's shot past Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist to pull the Senators to 5-4 and then tied it by deflecting a shot by Kyle Turris with 1:02 remaining. Pageau scored again 2:54 into the second OT, snapping in a shot during a 2-on-1 rush alongside Tommy Wingels. Pageau is the first Senator ever with four goals in a playoff game.
MacArthur exited Game 2 of the Senators' second-round series with the Rangers due to an upper-body injury, though coach Guy Boucher said the forward did not suffer another concussion.
Analysis: MacArthur missed nearly all of the last two regular seasons due to concussion issues, so his departure was clearly a cause for concern. The 32-year-old, who scored twice in Ottawa's opening-round series with Boston, is considered day to day.
Talbot made 39 saves in Friday's 2-1 win over the Ducks in Game 2.
Analysis: Edmonton's first playoff appearance in 11 years is off to a rollicking start, with the Oilers following up their six-game defeat of defending Western Conference champion San Jose by taking two games from the five-time champions of their division.
