And it's played out exactly that way on the ice, as the speedy, skilled and special Karlsson has racked up four assists and a plus-2 rating in three games, and is averaging a series-high 28:36 of ice time while topping 30 minutes in each of the last two games.
In Game 2, the Bruins blew a 3-1 lead in the third period, but Ottawa rallied with two goals third-period goals and won in overtime. Craig Anderson finished with 17 saves.
Can the Boston Bruins avoid another home loss to the Ottawa Senators when the two meet tonight at 7:30PM ET in Game 4 of their series?
The Boston Bruins played their worst period of hockey in a while to open Game 3 of their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Ottawa Senators on Monday night.
Just forty-two seconds later, David Backes got the Bruins within one goal and all the momentum.
After Tuukka Rask made a dazzling, slide-across-the-crease-save, the rest of the period was drastically different.
Defenseman Colin Miller is expected to play Wednesday in Boston's Game 4 matchup with the Ottawa Senators, head coach Bruce Cassidy confirmed after an optional morning skate at TD Garden.
Marchand, a 39-goal scorer in the regular season who scored the victor in Game 1 of the series, has been blanked in the last three games.
His return means Tommy Cross will likely be scratched after making his playoff debut in Game 3.
Toronto trailed 2-0 in the first period, and then 3-1 early in the second before Kadri and Nylander scored 4:07 apart late to tie the score in the final minute of the 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.
The Bruins scored three goals on seven second period shots.
Nylander evened the score at 3-3 with 40 seconds left in regulation to send the game into overtime. The Senators lead the series 2-1. The Bruins can't afford to fall behind 3-1 in this series heading back to Ottawa. He was able to tip a shot by John-Michael Liles by Anderson to at least get the crowd back into the game. Instead, the Bruins have had a hard time because more than half of their defense has been crippled by the injury bug.
It was Acciari who got the Bruins on the board at 6:05. Hoffman controlled the puck and easily tapped it by Rask into the right corner of the net. Bruins C Patrice Bergeron is a finalist for the Selke Trophy (best defensive forward) for the sixth straight year. The over/under total for the game is listed at 5 goals. "Win your little battles and it goes a long way in the war".
Through the first four-and-a-half games of the 2004 American League Championship Series, Hideki Matsui did pretty much anything he pleased at the plate. Miller also said he's ready to return, although Cassidy said his defenseman still will be a game-time decision.
