Sens return home for some more in-Division play against the Bruins. The team continued their practice of handing out "firsts" by giving the Habs and Price their first regulation home loss. I think I could get used to that. Both the PK and PP streaks came to an end as the Sens gave up two ref-assisted goals while scoring one themselves. Price was his usual self (7 of last 8 games against the Sens he has given up 3 or more goals). Karlsson set up the tying goal (didn't get an assist but that flip set up the play) and scored the winner after taking a bad retaliation penalty (that should also have been embellishment).
With the win the Senators leap over the Bruins into third place in the Division and a playoff spot. Ottawa is just two points back of Tampa for second, and hold a game in hand. However they are also just one point up on the Bruins.
Boston ran into a hot goaltender as they launched 41 shots at Jake Allan in a 4-2 loss to the visiting Blues. In addition to the game, the Bruins also lost Chara (who left in the second period and didn't return; he will miss at least two games). Kevan Miller may be ready to return, as is David Pastrnak.
I can't find any game-day previews yet.
GO SENS GO!!!
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
