Senators Lose 6-0 to the Bruins

Check out the highlights

Well, it didn’t take long for the same old Senator issues to come up again.  Just 3:32 into the first, Chris Campoli circled his own net and centred it to Mike Fisher.  Unfortunately, Fisher was unable to take the pass cleanly and it ended up on Patrice Bergeron’s stick, who snapped it shelf and put the Bruins up 1-0.  Then, Blake Wheeler would put one into the net after Chris Phillips failed to clear the puck twice during the same shift.  Once again, the Sens were  behind the 8 ball with only 10 minutes played in the game.

Moving on to the second where Patrice Bergeron would attempt a pass to Blake Wheeler, but instead flipped the puck off Filip Kuba right back to himself, chopping it by Elliott for a 3-0 lead.  A little over 11 minutes later, Brad Marchand would bank the puck off Sergei Gonchar’s skate and past Elliott to make it 4-0.  All 4 goals had something to do with a defenceman’s miscue (2 turnovers, 2 banked off passes) and poor Brian Elliott didn’t stand a chance.  To put the icing on the cake, Tyler Seguin would add his 7th of the season and the Bruins went into the third period with a 5 goal lead. (Editor’s note: while it didn’t matter to the score, Matt Carkner vs Shawn Thornton was a great tilt, with Carkner landing a shot that stunned Thornton to get the decision – Video Below)

Mike Brodeur started the third period in net and it didn’t take long for the Bruins to get to him.  At 5:04, Patrice Bergeron would benefit from yet another Sens turnover (Campoli), secure the puck and shoot it over Brodeur’s shoulder to make it 6-0.  The hat trick would be the first of Bergeron’s NHL career.  The remainder of the third was meaningless with only a scrum involving Matt Carkner and Daniel Paille causing any excitement. 

Not the strongest of efforts for the Senators.  Right from the get go, they were dominated by Boston’s never ending attack.  The pressure the Bruins put on the Sens D resulted in numerous turnovers, most leading to goals.  Brian Elliott didn’t really stand a chance, but didn’t look particularly strong either.  Arch-nemesis Tim Thomas recorded his 23rd career shutout, his 6th vs the Senators. 

It was reported near the end of the game that Corey Locke and Robin Lehner will be recalled for Thursday night’s contest vs the Islanders.  We’ll have to keep an eye on exactly who they are going to replace.
