The Penguins won't have to deal with a condensed schedule in their second-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Ottawa Senators.

After playing Game 1 at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at home, the Penguins won't host Game 2 until 72 hours later when the teams meet at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Consol Energy Center.

Ottawa will host Game 3 heads at 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

The teams will be off next Monday and Tuesday before playing May 22 at Ottawa in Game 4, also a 7:30 p.m. start.

The league has yet to release official information for the final two games of the series.
