Tip-in by Ryan lifts Senators over Bruins 4-3 in overtime

20 April, 2017

Another attractive pass by Karlsson, a nice little give-and-go with Kyle Turris, and Ryan slipped it past a helpless Tuukka Rask for the series lead. Mike Hoffman added two goals for Ottawa, with Derick Brassard scoring the other.

It's obviously easier said than done when it comes to a dominant player who finished with 17 goals and 71 points for the Sens this season.

This is the second straight game in which the Bruins have given the Senators a power play in the overtime period and for the second straight game it has cost them. His points helped build Ottawa's 3-0 lead, but Boston came back in Game 3 to force overtime.

Noel Acciari, David Backes and David Pastrnak answered for the Bruins in their second straight three-goal second period.

The Senators struck quickly with two goals in a span of 35 seconds in the first that left the probably left the Bruins wondering what it was going to take.

Hoffman and Brassard scored just 25 seconds apart in the first period and exploited a depleted Boston defense to give Ottawa an early 2-0 lead. Backes, in alone, pulled Boston to within a goal by beating Anderson at 6:47 to cut Ottawa's lead to 3-2.

The refs didn't score the overtime goal or force the Bruins to blow coverage on the deciding tally from, who else, Ryan, but it's still frustrating when the officials play such a strong factor in the outcome of a game, especially when it's a playoff game between two teams who battled pretty evenly all night long.

Overall, the Bruins need to allow goalie Tuukka Rask to see the puck better moving forward.

Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov all scored for the Presidents' Trophy-winning Capitals.

Ottawa was the better team in Game 3 and rightfully won.

Now, it's on the Bruins to put it behind them and bounce back in Game 4 or head back to Ottawa while staring down a first-round exit. However, the Capitals got the early jump as they scored twice in the first five minutes with both goals coming from their top line of Ovechkin, Backstrom and T.J. Oshie.

In Game 3 they had to stave off a furious charge by the Bruins to regain the series lead. He stopped the initial shot, but Matthews hung with it and batted the rebound out of the air to cut the deficit to 2-1. There's my sour grapes view that such a call in a tie game in overtime is a bad one, especially since both Nash and Bobby Ryan, the player he was tangled up with, were guilty of cheap shots and hits on each other, and handing a man advantage over to one team when such things are what end up deciding games like this isn't fair, because roughing calls are nearly always subjective.
