Just like game two, game three ended in a 4-3 overtime win for the Ottawa Senators. With a 2-1 series lead, the Senators look to steal another game in Boston before heading back to Ottawa to try and close out the series.
In game three, Ottawa looked great early on, scoring the game’s first three goals thanks to Mike Hoffman and Derick Brassard. Hoffman scored in the first period and then again in the second for his first two goals of the playoffs.
Derick Brassard scored his second of the playoffs on a first period goal. On the power play in overtime, Bobby Ryan scored his second of the playoffs to win the game. Ryan, after a less than stellar regular season, has been vital to Ottawa’s success in this series.
The defense has to be more consistent for Ottawa, as it let Boston right back in game three, giving up three straight goals in an eight minute span. If the Senators can play a better defensive game, they should be able to win in regulation in game four.
Boston had to play from behind, which ultimately cost the team a victory. The Bruins got back in the game by scoring three goals in the second period but couldn’t capitalize on chances in the third.
Some poor penalties cost Boston the game, as Bobby Ryan scored a power play goal to win the game and Mike Hoffman scored on a power play early in the second period. Combined, Boston had six minor penalties and was in the box for 12 minutes.
Goalie Tuukka Rask continues to be tested hard in this series. He surrendered four goals on 32 shots, tallying a save percentage of just .875. He’ll have to be tough in net in game four if Boston is going to tie the series.
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 NHL Playoff Prediction:
Boston has to find a way to score first and not play from behind in game four. If it does so, it should gain the momentum and win in front of its home crowd. I like the Bruins to get the W in game four.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Ottawa ATS
Ottawa covered in the last game and I believe it’ll do the same in this one. Boston hasn’t played nearly as well as it can and the Senators will keep it close in game four.
