Senators Lose 2-1 to Bruins

What a heart-breaking loss for the Ottawa Senators.

Only 1:04 away from assuring themselves at least one point, a lost face-off in their own zone resulted in Dennis Seidenberg’s 1st goal of the season and a 2-1 loss to the Boston Bruins.

The game itself was a typical Boston-Ottawa contest.  Tight-checking, highly structured and defensively sound.  Not the most exciting and definitely not one you’d play back off the old DVR.

Kaspars Daugavins’ first goal of the season gave the Senators a 1-0 lead in the second when his shot from along the boards fooled Anton Kubodin.   After a review to see if it hit a high-stick on its way through a crowd in front, it was called a good goal.

The Bruins tied it with only 1:22 remaining. Daniel Paille skated in on Robin Lehner and let go a shot that seemed to handcuff the Swedish goaltender and trickled into the net.  Kind of a stinker and one I’m sure Lehner would like back.

Notes:  The Boston Bruins have now defeated the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place 11 straight times.

Sergei Gonchar’s assist on the Daugavins goal extended his point streak to 9 games.  He now has 14 points in those 9 contests.  The assist also set a franchise record for most consecutive games with an assist.  The previous mark was held by Filip Kuba with 8.

Gonchar left the game midway through the third period after blocking a shot.  He did not return.
