Senators Get Revenge Against Bruins

It didn’t take long for the Sentators to exact their revenge against the Bruins. Just last Thursday, April 2, the Bruins beat the Senators 2-1 to get their 50th win. Five days later on Tuesday night, the Senators earned their own one-goal victory, winning 3-2.

Phil Kessel returned after a five-game absence due to an “undisclosed” injury, and scored his 32nd goal for the Bruins. Zdeno Chara also scored for the B’s, but it was not enough against former Bruin Alex Auld.

Auld finished with 31 saves in 33 chances, including at least 10 saves in each period. Not too shabby.

Manny Fernandez started in net for the Bruins, who really have nothing to play for but pride until the end of the regular season. Fernandez finished with 29 saves in 32 saves, but it was not enough in the losing effort.

Dany Heatley, Christoph Schubert, and Mike Fisher scored for Ottowa.

The Bruins next take on the Montreal Canadiens Thursday night.

Side Note: For those of you who listen to WEEI’s Dale and Holley program frequently…
With just three games to go in the season, Michael Holley’s prediction that Kessel will finish with 35 goals may not happen. Holley can’t help that Kessel missed five games due to injury, but it’s definitely still possible that the phenom finishes with three goals in the next three games. Holley, I’m pulling for ya. Holla atcha boy!

  2. I can’t believe the progress the Bruins have made in the past 2 season. We have gone from the bottom feeders, to inching into the playoffs, to the #1 seed in the East. That’s exciting! Also with 3 games left we can still make a run at the President’s Trophy if San Jose takes a fall. I haven’t been this excited for the Bruins since I was a little guy idolizing Bourque and Neely.

  3. Josh, good point. It’s pretty incredible how far the Bruins have come in such a short amount of time. I’m glad to be covering this team at this exciting time.

    can’t wait for the playoffs!
