On Saturday, game two of this Eastern Conference first round between the Boston Bruins and Ottawa Senators went to overtime, where a mistake late in the 3rd period led to an Ottawa power play and the winning goal early in the extra period.
Game three shifts to Boston, where the Bruins will hope to regain the series lead in front of its home fans.
Game two saw a much better performance from the Ottawa Senators, one that got the team four goals on offense against a very good goaltender in Tuukka Rask.
Defensively, the Senators weren’t fantastic but got the job done. The penalties need to diminish, as Ottawa had four minor penalties in the first two periods. One of those penalties led to a Boston goal.
Clarke MacArthur, Chris Wideman, and Derick Brassard each got their first goals of the playoffs in regulation and Dion Phaneuf ended the game with a goal early in overtime.
Boston didn’t play a great game, especially on the defensive end. In fact, a rare mistake from captain Zdeno Chara gave the Senators a power play to start overtime, one that essentially led to a Dion Phaneuf goal less than two minutes into extra time.
Tuukka Rask gave up four goals on 29 shots and didn’t have his best performance. His defense let him down and the penalties were poor. A Frank Vatrano tripping penalty led to an Ottawa goal.
Patrice Bergeron got his first goal on the playoffs, as did Drew Stafford and Tim Schaller. Boston has to get more consistent play throughout the game, as all the goals came in period one.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Ottawa is 3-7 SU in the last 10 games
- The UNDER is 6-1 in Boston’s last seven games
Free Ottawa Senators vs. Boston Bruins Game 3 NHL Playoff Prediction:
Boston’s defense wasn’t nearly as good in game two as it was in game one. I like the Bruins to bounce back in game three and play a much better all-around game. Boston gets the W at home.
4* Free NHL Game 3 Betting Pick: Ottawa ATS
Ottawa will keep this game close, especially after how well the team performed in game two. I think Boston will win the game, but Ottawa will cover the spread.
