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

Isaac Mcdaniel | 21 April, 2017, 18:53

Phaneuf also had two assists.

Drew Stafford, Tim Schaller and Patrice Bergeron provided the offence for the Bruins.

ABOUT THE SENATORS: Forward Clarke MacArthur, who returned earlier this month after being sidelined since October 2015 due to a concussion, electrified the Ottawa fans Saturday when he scored for the first time in two years.

McAvoy played a lot of minutes, played very well, but also showed plenty of rookie mistakes that can and should be ironed out by Monday night.

"Playoffs aren't about momentum, they're about urgency and they're about desperation". Both of these games have been single goal finals, the Bruins won 2-1 in the opener before Ottawa earned the must-win in overtime on Saturday night.

Everything in the first period was more or less a "Feeling out" period for both teams, both sides mostly just taking low quality shots on each other, with Rask seeing some of the more interesting chances and steering them away.

No one is planning any Duck Boat parades in Boston this June, but a few bone-rattling hits Erik Karlsson's way might help extend the hockey season beyond the first round.

The relative lack of firepower from the Bruins' top forwards has not necessarily been because of the Bruins' depleted defense, or the Senators' neutral zone trap.

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.

Backes scooped up the loose puck and broke in all alone on Anderson to score and cut the Ottawa lead to 3-2.

Ronaldo resting, Isco's 2 goals keeps Madrid on title track
Duje Cop gave Sporting the lead from Mikel Vesga's flicked ball over the top but Isco levelled after good footwork. Isco scored a stoppage-time victor as Real Madrid twice came from behind to win 3-2 at Sporting Gijon.

The Senators were able to get up off the mat after Ryan scored the victor at 5:43 of OT on the power play to deliver the knockout punch to the Bruins. With leading goal-scorer Kyle Turris - as well as 22-goal-scorer Mark Stone - having trouble getting on the scoreboard, Ryan's play is that much more crucial to the Senators' success. 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.

NOTES: Ottawa was 2 for 4 on power plays.

Let's see how we got there.

Just over six minutes later, the Bruins got a power play resulting in David Pasternak firing a shot from just inside the face off circle that found its way past Craig Anderson to tie the game at three.

Ryan Ellis, Harry Zolnierczyk, Colton Sissons and Kevin Fiala each scored their first career playoff goal.

With so many injuries on the blueline for the Bruins, Tommy Cross and Matt Grzelcyk were recalled on an emergency basis ahead of game three.

Fortunately for the Sens, they have a number of players they can turn to (Fredrik Claesson, Ben Harpur and Jyrki Jokipakka) who have at least some experience playing with the team this year.

Ottawa had Marc Methot back in the lineup for the first time since suffering a laceration to his pinky finger March 23.

The helper stood as McAvoy's first career National Hockey League point. Khudobin served as Tuukka Rask's backup.
