Boston Bruins vs. Ottawa Senators - 4/19/17 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Brassard is tied with Bobby Ryan and Erik Karlsson for the team lead in playoff points. Mike Hoffman added two goals for Ottawa, with Derick Brassard scoring the other. Craig Anderson will continue manning goaltending duties as he will face off against Tuukka Rask as both goaltenders look to get back on track after a high scoring affair in game three.

A great second period.

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.

Another overtime game last night in Toronto, and much like the Bruins contest, the hometown crowd went wild seeing their team come back from a deficit.

"That's the way it goes in the playoffs, the tide changes, there's a lot resiliency in the playoffs", said coach Guy Boucher.

The refs didn't score the overtime goal or force the Bruins to blow coverage on the deciding tally from, who else, Ryan, but it's still frustrating when the officials play such a strong factor in the outcome of a game, especially when it's a playoff game between two teams who battled pretty evenly all night long. The Bruins, down 2-1 after three games, know they have to make Karlsson work a whole lot harder for everything he's getting.

In overtime, on a night where the whistles were essentially put away late, Ottawa got a gift power play as the officials somehow seemed fit to call Riley Nash with the retaliation after a play where Ryan could have easily been whistled as well with coincidental minors, or even Ryan going off solo.

After climbing back in dramatic fashion, the Bruins forced OT and had in front of them an opportunity to win one of those games that leaves an opponent demoralized and potentially alters the course of a series.

Boston Bruins left wing David Pastrnak (88) is congratulated after his goal during the second period in Game 3 of a first-round NHL hockey playoff series in Boston, Monday, April 17, 2017.

The Senators outshot the Bruins 10-3 in the first, taking advantage of several defensive breakdowns on their side of the ice. Colin Miller skated in warmups but did not play.

Ottawa's first goal of the night came after Erik Karlsson flipped a pass behind Boston's defense to spring Hoffman on a breakaway. But at the same time I think we can do a much better job making sure that he doesn't get to play his game as much as he wants to.

It was the first game of the series that the Bruins had trailed after the opening 20 minutes.

Ottawa's Marc Methot delivers a punch straight to the grill of Boston's Tim Schaller, who doesn't respond, yet both players were sent off. With Miller returning, fellow blueliner Tommy Cross will be a healthy scratch.
