Kasperi Kapanen scored his second goal of the game 11:53 into the second overtime, Frederik Andersen made 47 saves and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Washington Capitals 4-3 Saturday night in Game 2 to even the first-round series.
"That's the way that we're going to have to play if we're going to beat these guys".
"The whole city's kind of been having to listen to me the last couple of years trying to make comebacks and what-not and to get that ovation was just, wow, probably be the best moment I have in hockey". I think that's just playoff hockey, but it's just one of those things that, a dirty play here, a dirty play there...it doesn't matter. At the outset of the first playoff game since the Presidents' Trophy-winning Bruins of 2013-14 were upset in a Game 7 by the Montreal Canadiens, the Garden was rocking. The first game we were tentative in the third period and (Saturday) we were too aggressive in the second period. We have to step up and all be better. Other than that, the Senators have had the Bruins number and numerous games weren't close.
"They're going to come out hard in their building".
Over the last two seasons, Cross has taken on a bigger leadership role with the P-Bruins.
Mike Hoffman scored twice and Derick Brassard had a goal in regulation for the Senators. The Senators won on each of their past three visits to Boston, two of them this season.
"They've been doing a heck of a job with the injuries they have".
After all the overlooked penalties during the course of the game, they called that one? I saw the replay, he took a couple of hits there and then gave him a little shove, so the refs can't see the replays the way we can.
"There's just a few minor things". They got the start that we should have had.
"Hey Sully, how'd you get that stick you have mounted up on the wall?". Then MacArthur looked at Ryan and said "Yeah, baby!"
NOTES: C David Krejci, who missed the first two games of the series with an upper body injury, returned for Boston. "Our fans, I think the building is gonna be loud and we've got to be ready for the start of the game". "We seem to thrive on the road". Hoffman's blast from the point by Rask, his second of the game, should have put the Senators in total control of this night.
Of course, that may be because they have no other choice.
The Senators emerged from Game 3 with a 4-3 overtime win in Boston to go up 2-1 in the series, but the result was not an easy one, nor necessarily a just one. Boucher wasn't aware of the debris that was thrown to the ice following Monday's contest as he immediately headed down the tunnel.
He said there is potential for Borowiecki to play Monday, but noted the club has extra defencemen with Fredrik Claesson and Ben Harpur, so if there's risk involved it may be better to be cautious and give somebody else a chance. "But obviously, tough penalty to take in the overtime".
Ottawa had Marc Methot back in the lineup for the first time since suffering a laceration to his pinky finger on March 23.
Dion Phaneuf waited a long time for this moment. "They got the lead and we were playing catch-up after that".
"Every game is a new game and it's a new story. We're blessed right now everybody is healthy".
