The bad outweighs the good in Bruins' Game 3 loss

The bad outweighs the good in Bruins' Game 3 loss

Monday night's clash was a wild one, as Ottawa built a 3-0 lead by the four minute mark of the second period.

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. After having just 3 shots in the first two games, Hoffman put 8 shots on Rask Monday night, and that doesn't include the one he rang off the crossbar in the third period that could have ended things without requiring overtime.

In his dazzling play during Game 2 where he wheeled around the offensive zone before dropping a pass to a wide-open Derick Brassard, the entire five-man defensive unit for Boston followed him with the puck and lost track of the player creeping up to the backdoor.

Fortunately for them, the Senators rebounded to take the 2-1 series lead in overtime, but not without instilling doubt about this team's ability to hold leads.

Phaneuf, a 12-year veteran, scored the victor from the point as Alex Burrows provided a screen.

But the Bruins' comeback felt eerily familiar to MacArthur and Phaneuf. "I've played a long time and this is my first overtime victor and it feels great". "I just tried to get it up 18 inches and I got lucky that I did". Craig Anderson made 17 saves.

Drew Stafford, Tim Schaller and Patrice Bergeron provided the offence for the Bruins. While they've outshot the Bruins, and are almost equal in shot attempts, many of those shots have come outside the home plate area (widely considered to be the danger zone), which isn't good enough when facing a goalie of Rask's calibre.

Now, despite the fact they've won the last two games and have regained home ice advantage in the series, Boucher and his captain both said the Senators need to improve their game to finish off the Bruins.

Come back to Boston, get the series lead, figure it out from there. Boston needs to win here and as we have seen already in these playoffs teams playing for their playoff lives tend to show up big and I see that happening here for Boston.

"That's the way that we're going to have to play if we're going to beat these guys".

The Bruins have battled tooth and nail to overcome the injuries which is why the Senators understand they have to do a better job for 60 minutes.

"It was definitely nice that we responded the way that we did".

The Bruins said they were conscious of a push back from the Senators in the third period.

"They capitalized on their chances but we're in here for each other and we pick each other up". The Senators defeated the Bruins 4-3.

The Leafs pulled back within one when Kadri fired through traffic from the point to beat Holtby with 4:47 left in the middle period.

The Senators challenged the goal believing the play was offside, but a lengthy review upheld the goal.

The Bruins were a decent team at home this season, going 23-17-1 in their own building.

"It feels great", said Ryan.

"I don't know if that was the hockey gods trying to repay me, but I'll take a few more like that".

Reaction from the Senators bench was just as good as the crowd's as MacArthur is respected from teammates and coaches alike.

Guy Boucher has said that there will be no changes ahead of Game 4.

Trailing by a trio of goals through the first 24 minutes of play, the Bruins countered off of three unanswered goals in the second period, with Noel Acciari, David Backes and David Pastrnak all lightning the lamp in the frame. Borowiecki crashed into the boards and left Saturday's game in the first period.

Trailing 3-1 to start the third, the Senators scored twice in a span of 2:20 to tie the game. David Krejci please come back.
