Senators Lose 3-2 (SO) to Bruins

In a battle of the best, the Bruins being the top road team in the NHL and the Senators having the strongest home record, it took a shootout to decide a winner.

And what a shootout it was.

Kaspars Daugavins has the sports world talking this evening with his spinarama attempt on Tuukka Rask.  Unfortunately for Ottawa, the attempt failed and David Krejci went on to score the game-winner in a 3-2 Boston victory.

The Senators grabbed an early lead when Guillaume Latendresse scored his 1st goal as a Senator just 55 seconds into the game with a sweet breakaway deke move on Tuukka Rask.  That was followed by Kyle Turris’ 5th goal of the season, his first marker since Jan 25th against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Then, at 11:41, Adam McQuaid ran Chris Neil into the end boards, resulting in Patrick Weircioch quickly grabbing him and starting a fight.  Rather than be on the power-play however, the Senators were on the penalty kill as Weircioch received an extra 2 minutes for instigating with a visor, as well as a 10-minute misconduct.  Absolutely ridiculous considering McQuaid was the one who performed the original illegal act but nonetheless, the call that was made.

Nothing came of it but that didn’t mean the Bruins were done.  A late first period goal by Shawn Thornton that Robin Lehner should’ve had closed the gap to 1 and at 8:53 of the second, Daniel Paille snuck in behind the Ottawa defenders and took a breakout pass from David Krejci.  A quick snapshot to the stick side later and it was tied at 2.

The game went all the way to a shootout and after successful attempts by Kyle Turris & Patrice Bergeron….Kaspars Daugavins decided to give this a whirl.

Game notes:

Chris Kelly left with an apparent injury to his left leg after a collision with Chris Neil.

With the victory, the Bruins have now beaten Ottawa, in Ottawa, for 10 straight games.

Of course, this wasn’t the first time he attempted this shootout move…..
