Jean-Gabriel Pageau is hoping the tooth fairy can bring the Ottawa Senators closer to the second round.

The rookie center continued his ascension towards playoff-hero status, scoring a hat trick and losing a tooth in the process to lead his team to a decisive 6-1 win against the Montreal Canadiens to take a 2-1 lead in their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series Sunday night.

Ottawa will host Game 4 on Tuesday.
