Of all the drama ever produced at Scotiabank Place, nothing matches what happened with 28.6 seconds left in the third period Sunday night.

Talk about setting off some May long weekend fireworks.

Daniel Alfredsson (who else?) did just that with a goal that sent the Senators into overtime in Game 3 of their second round playoff series against the Penguins.

Those who haven’t seen the miracle comebacks - both as a team and in some individual cases - made by the 2013 edition of the local NHL team were probably heading to their cars, resigned to the fact the Senators season was all but over.

But with Erik Karlsson serving a slashing penalty and Craig Anderson on the bench, Alfredsson deflected a pass from Milan Michalek into the top corner of the Pittsburgh net to tie the game at 1-1.

Whatever would happen after that didn’t matter at the time. The goal by the 40-year-old captain led to an erruption that was even louder than the one scored by Steve Duchesne on April 12, 1997 to put the Senators in the playoffs for the first time ever.

And as far as pure drama goes, well, there’s no comparision.
