Quick Hits: Craziness continues; Bruins and Sens tied at four
– Not the start the Bruins were looking for in the middle frame as David Legwand picked up his first goal in 17 games to give the Seantors their second lead of the game.
– The craziness continued in the second period. The Bruins and Senators shared three goals in 2:32 as Ryan Spooner’s power play goal, Jean-Gabriel Pageau’s shorthanded goal and Torey Krug’s even strength goal have this one tied at four.
– Rough two periods for Reilly Smith. Two turnovers on the night by Smith have resulted in goals by the Senators. The Bruins need more from Smith
– With two very big points sitting on the table, the Bruins need to be much better in the final game in order to pick up a very important win. A win in regulation would do wonders for the Bruins.
– Just after the Bruins and Senators took the ice to start the game, Sens goalie Andrew Hammond raced back into the dressing room, only to come back out after the National Anthem’s. A skate issue was the cause of Hammond’s absence.
– It didn’t take long for the Senators to raise the volume inside the Canadian Tire Centre as Kyle Turris scored just 19 seconds into the game, but Carl Soderberg’s first goal in 24 games 40 seconds later tied the game at 1-1.
– Ryan Spooner followed up Soderberg’s tally with a goal of his own, tipping home a point shot from Milan Lucic. The B’s responded well after allowing the opening goal.
– The wild first period concluded as Milan Michalek tied the game at two with just under five minutes to go.
– The Bruins and Sens both had single power play chances in the opening 20. Neither team cashed in on the man advantage, but the B’s did register five shots on Hammond with their PP opportunity.
