The series between the Boston Bruins and the Ottawa Senators shifts to Beantown all knotted up at one apiece. The Bruins have not exactly excelled at TD Center during the season, they have the second-worst home record of any team in the playoffs, but did their best to rectify those issues recently. The Bruins have gone 11-4-1 in their past 16 home games.
– Shark BITES
- The Senators are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games on the road.
- The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Bruins’ last 9 games at home.
- The favored team is 2-6 SU in its last 8 games in this matchup.
The biggest question mark for the Bruins heading into Game 3 is their defense. The back end has been dealing with injuries over the past several weeks and was without Colin Miller in Game 2 after he went down in the first meeting in the series. Miller and Brandon Carlo both participated in an optional skate on Sunday, which is a good sign, but the team may resort to a call-up from Providence.
Dion Phaneuf scored the game-winning goal in overtime in Game 2 but that shouldn’t be a shock considering how good the defenseman has played against the Bruins this season. Phaneuf has tallied one goal and six assists while averaging over 22 minutes of ice-time in six games against Boston between the regular season and playoffs.
