Injuries are hurting the Boston Bruins, especially on defense. The Ottawa Senators’ defensemen put a hurt on the Bruins in Game 2, too.
Zdeno Chara‘s delay of game penalty came in the waning moments of regulation, and while the decisive goal wasn’t technically during a power play, Boston was in an awkward spot for Dion Phaneuf‘s hard shot.
Boom. Just like that, the Senators rallied back from a two-goal deficit with three unanswered goals, tying the series at 1-1 after a 4-3 overtime win.
The Bruins managed to grab home-ice advantage in the series by taking Game 1, but there’s no denying that it must burn to realize that they held a two-goal lead (and a chance at a 2-0 series advantage) heading into the third period.
They’ll need to dig deep as the series shifts to Boston, much like Ottawa did in getting back into it with this Game 2 win.
