Tip-in by Ryan lifts Senators over Bruins 4-3 in overtime

"We had many opportunities to end it in the third".

"Those are the fun games you like to play in". The Senators defeated the Bruins 4-3.

The Boston Bruins rallied from a 3-0 second period deficit only to fall to the Ottawa Senators 4-3 in overtime on Monday night at TD Garden in Boston.

"That's the National Hockey League", said Boucher. Boston is still injured and vulnerable, and Karlsson could be primed for a big night.

There is no way this game ever should have gotten to OT.

The Senators are 1-6 in their last 7 road games, 1-4 in their last 5 Monday games and 14-6 in their last 20 games playing on 1 days rest.

"When we think ahead, we're in trouble", he said. "You know, they take it to us and get some good looks, and we didn't respond..."

"That's the only thing that we're focusing on". He has just 14 penalty minutes in 81 games during the regular season.

"We've got to take this, digest it, and then move on because it's in the books and all we can affect now is Wednesday's game and come out flying in that one and take control of the game for a full 60 minutes", said David Backes, who tallied the Bruins' second goal.

Phaneuf struck just under two minutes into overtime, getting as much as he could on a one-timer from the point to send this crowd into a tizzy yet again.

When the game ended, Bruins fans, irate over the penalty call, littered the ice with debris.

"Going forward is more of a target date", Bruins interim coach Bruce Cassidy said.

Riley Nash was in the penalty box for taking a swing at Ryan, and replays showed there easily could have been a penalty on both players, or even none at all given the history of penalties not being called in overtime.

"Demoralizing and disappointing", Cassidy said. "You can't make that play".

Filip Forsberg scored twice in the third period to force overtime.

"We were expecting that". He played three games with the team last season. "I've played a long time and this is my first overtime victor and it feels great".

Even Bobby Orr, the beloved former Bruin great who was among those in attendance, must have had trouble digesting what was unfolding at ice level.

A key to victory for the Senators on Monday was their ability to win faceoffs.

I also give a lot of credit to Derick Brassard.

Boston's Patrice Bergeron, regarded as one of the NHL's best, was just 13-16.

Boston's defensive core is also dealing with injuries, and the team recalled defensemen Tommy Cross and Matt Grzelcyk from its AHL affiliate in Providence. Boucher wasn't aware of the debris that was thrown to the ice following Monday's contest as he immediately headed down the tunnel. 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. "That was an incredible pass", he said. Ryan Johansen had a goal and two assists as Nashville added a dominant performance to its taut 1-0 victory in Game 1 on Thursday night.
