Bruins' second period frenzy not enough to beat Senators in Game 3

In terms of injuries, Boucher said defenseman Mark Borowiecki, who missed Game 3 with a lower-body ailment, was still day-to-day and could be available Wednesday.

The good vibes were stifled less than two minutes later, when Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson got caught trying to play the puck and gifted Boston a short-handed goal.

In Game 3, the series returned to Boston. Scoring the other Senators goals were Derick Brassard, Chris Wideman and Clarke MacArthur.

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - Dion Phaneuf waited a long time for this moment.

Coming off a 4-3 victory over the Bruins in Game 2 at home Saturday, the Senators weren't about to rest on their laurels. "We've just got to tighten up a few things I think". Tuukka Rask stopped 28 shots for Boston.

And Boucher isn't allowing himself to entertain thoughts of the Senators returning to Ottawa with a 3-1 series lead.

Skating in alone against Rask, Hoffman bested the Bruins netminder with a quick set of dangles to make it a 1-0 game.

The penalty on Nash drew the ire of the sellout TD Garden crowd of 17,565, as well as Bruins interim coach Bruce Cassidy. "That's exciting. "They're a good team; they're a fast team; they create a lot".

"It was definitely nice that we responded the way that we did". Adjustments are made, however, just because he hasn't been completely satisfied with the way the Senators have played in the first two games, they're not about to throw in wrench in the game plan.

"It was tough. You've got to stay postive as much as you can", Hoffman said.

Despite outshooting the Bruins 18-10 through 40 minutes, the two teams were tied 3-3 going into the third and, though it wasn't all Anderson's fault, he has to make a stop or two to give the Senators a chance, especially at this time of year. "Not too many positives come out of tonight's game".

The Senators challenged the goal believing the play was offside, but a lengthy review upheld the goal.

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.

"It was just a great feeling", MacArthur said.

"I don't know if you can neutralize that first [saucer pass in Game 3]". Ottawa coach Guy Boucher said before Game 3 that the stat didn't mean much to him because it's all about the final score.

"The one-hander I didn't".

The Bruins took a 3-1 lead late in the period with a power-play goal as Bergeron tipped David Pastrnak's shot. Boston Marathon finishers were asked to rise for the cameras during a first-period timeout. "A couple of times in this series we've had five defensemen and that's always hard for the guys, to put them in that situation". He had been out with a lacerated pinky finger suffered when Penguins star Sidney Crosby slashed him during a game.

As badly as he wanted to get back, Miller said any injured player has to feel confident in his health before stepping on the ice.
