Senators Lose 3-1 to Bruins

Check out the highlights

Never count your chickens before they hatch.  Tonight’s contest was a game that everyone deemed a “playoff preview,” but it was still going to take 2 teams that actually wanted to compete to live up to the hype.  Unfortunately, neither really seemed to play with passion and what the fans got was a slowly-paced, going-through-the-motions type game. 

The Senators, knowing that their opposition was down a few regulars, seemed to lack any sense of urgency.  When they did show some jump, they were met head on by goaltender Anton Khudobin. Khodobin made several spectacular saves, including turning away a couple of point blank shots by Nick Foligno.  The only way they could beat him was with a little puck luck when Jason Spezza’s shot went off the post, off the goaltender and into the net. 

Despite everything however, Ottawa still had a chance to tie the game.  Rob Klinkhammer found Erik Karlsson all alone along the side of the net but as No. 65 was shooting  towards the goal, he heeled the puck and sent it wide.  Minutes later, Milan Lucic put the game away on an odd man rush and the Bruins went on to the 3-1 victory.

With the loss, the Senators still do not have a guaranteed opponent for the upcoming playoffs.  A single point (or a Washington loss) in their next game against the Devils would result in a matchup with the Bruins.  A loss versus the Devils (and a Washington win) means the Senators are heading to New York.  I guess we’ll have to wait and see….
