The Senators will face the Bruins in Game 4 Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. and the start time for Game 5 Friday at the Canadian Tire Centre has been set for 7:30 p.m. The goal came following a short 5-on-3 power play after the Senators took back-to-back penalties. Ryan broke into the Boston zone and delivered a backhand pass to center Kyle Turris.
Riley Nash, who was called for roughing after taking a swing at Ryan, took responsibility for the play.
The penalty on Nash drew the ire of the sellout TD Garden crowd of 17,565, as well as Bruins interim coach Bruce Cassidy.
"Demoralizing and disappointing. I think you guys summed it up". "That's exciting. "They're a good team; they're a fast team; they create a lot". "They did a great job".
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.
Boston settled down a bit toward the end of the frame, but the B's never really tested Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson in the opening 20 minutes.
NOTES: Senators D Marc Methot was back in the lineup for his first game since having a finger severed by a Sidney Crosby slash on March 23. Defensively, the Boston Bruins are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 85.7 percent of their opponents power plays.
TORONTO - Tyler Bozak scored 1:37 into overtime to cap Toronto's comeback from two goals down in the second period, and the Maple Leafs beat Washington to take a 2-1 lead in the first-round series. "In (a) matter of a few minutes, the tide changes". The series is tied 1-1 and Game 3 is Monday night in Boston. By dumping pucks in deep and beating him to them in the corners - a tactic first employed with success by the Chicago Blackhawks midway through the 2013 Stanley Cup final, which turned the series in their favor for good - Ottawa will look to keep Chara twisting, turning and reaching with his stick. areas in which he's not almost as effective as when he's burying forwards along the walls, clearing the front of the net or head-manning a pass to an onrushing forward in the neutral zone.
The Bruins scored three goals on seven second period shots. Thirty-five seconds later, Derick Brassard pumped home a loose puck from close range to make it 2-0.
Acciari, making his playoff debut, scored on a redirect at 6:05 to cut the deficit to 3-1.
A poor start was made even worse just 25 seconds later, as a breakdown in front of Rask led to Ottawa's second goal of the night.
Noel Acciari, Backes and David Pastrnak answered for the Bruins in their second straight three-goal second period. Turris then got the puck to Ryan, who tipped it past Tuukka Rask as the Senators overcame blowing a 3-0 lead to re-capture home-ice advantage in the series. Tonight, the Senators jumped up to a 3-0 lead less than 24 minutes into the game.
The Maple Leafs were hosting their first playoff game in nearly four years and coming off an exciting double-overtime win in Game 2.
The Bruins were already down to their ninth defenseman on the depth chart as Joe Morrow was in for an injured Colin Miller.
"I feel much better", Krejci said after the morning skate.
"Monday night's going to be the same thing", Wideman said after Sunday's practice.
