Senators rally past Bruins to win in OT

Senators rally past Bruins to win in OT

In a series that's become defined by the B's health woes on the point (the Bruins skated in Game 3 without four of their regular National Hockey League defensemen), it's expected that Colin Miller will be the one that steps back onto the ice and makes his return to the club's blue line.

Pekka Rinne made 30 saves in his second straight shutout and picked up two assists, helping the Nashville Predators pound the Chicago Blackhawks 5-0 on Saturday night for a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series. Boston seized home-ice advantage from Ottawa by scoring a pair of third-period goals in a 2-1 win in Game 1, but now must regroup after squandering a glittering chance to take command of the series.

Ottawa can secure a 3-1 series lead with a road win over Boston on Wednesday night.

Bruins fans in attendance for Game 3 against the Senators didn't get to see the result they were hoping for on Monday night, as Boston lost in overtime to Ottawa, 4-3.

Craig Anderson made 17 saves in the Ottawa goal, and Rask had 28 saves for Boston. Eric Karlsson and the Sens roared to life not too soon after, Karlsson had a tremendous individual shift that had Derrick Brassard wide open after drawing everyone to him, and the game was tied.

With the power play winding down, Ottawa's Kyle Turris slid a pass to Bobby Ryan for a tap in goal to give the Senators the walk-off win.

The captain was absolutely right in his assessment of his team's play through the first two games, as they played well enough to win both but almost came away empty handed as many times.

David Backes chose to get in on the fun a minute later when he scored and sent the Garden crowd into a frenzy with them being down just by a goal.

First, Acciari, who returned from injury, got Boston on the board on a tip-in off a miss by John- Michael Liles.

Mike Hoffman started the scoring for the visitors with just over seven minutes expired from the clock when he slipped the puck past Rask for the 1-0 lead. Backes picked it up and went in alone to beat Anderson. While skating out in the left circle, Pastrnak took a pass from Charlie McAvoy and promptly buried a one-time bomb to tie things up at 3-3. Taking the puck at the right point, Karlsson quickly skated along the blue line and then toward the net. Kevan Miller, Brad Marchand, Dominic Moore, Noel Acciari, Tim Schaller, Colin Miller, Riley Nash, Backes. basically, anyone wearing a Black and Gold sweater should make it their mission to chip away at the Ottawa blueliner. Ottawa D Mark Borowiecki, who sustained a lower-body injury in Game 2, was replaced by Ben Harpur, making his playoff debut.

Ottawa coach Guy Boucher, saying "rest is a weapon", kept his regulars off the ice Tuesday.

Unfortunately, Boston would get put on the PK not soon after, and Clarke MacArthur, who hasn't scored since 2015, would pot it home off of a passing play that found Rask dead to rights and Kevan Miller extremely out of position.
