The Boston Bruins Eke One Out In OT Against The Ottawa Senators. Combined Speed Of All Three Goals Did Not Exceed School Zone Speed Limit.


<p><b> Maybe it was sweet payback for Tuukka Rask, this time the game winning goal in the fading minutes of OT with the Senators was a dirty goal FOR the Bruins:</b></p>


<li> Remember, Tuukka doesn't like to lose in OT. Just for fun, let's revisit the drama of the fiery Finn's ire. [<a href="">BigLeadSports</a>]</li>

<li> Claude Julien has the same confidence in Rask that he had in Tim Thomas. [<a href="">BostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li> However, Julien noted that the Bruins were being beaten to the puck more than he'd have liked. [<a href="">NESN</a>]</li>

<li> The Bruins squeaked out this one, chalking up a character win, and will play at home for the next short stretch. [<a href="">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> Dougie Hamilton stepped in to give-and-go with Nathan Horton, who trickled one past Robin Lehner. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> The Senators scored after the Bs failed to clear the crease after Tuukka Rask closed down a clean breakaway during a Sens power-play. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> The game winning OT nail-biter was a trickling Patrice Bergeron redirection of a Dennis Seidenberg shot, which was reviewed. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Here's the lowdown on the good, the bad, and the ugly. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> Milan Lucic 's physicality benefitted the Bruins. [<a href="">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> And the Bruins were still not playing their best hockey. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> The Bruins have played 5 games to OT and 3 of those to shootout. Despite having played the fewest games in the NHL, it has been a grind. [<a href="">WBZ,CBSLocal</a>]</li>

<li> Adam McQuaid has taken Hamilton under his wing, and being roomates has worked out well so far for them. [<a href="">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> So far, no Bruins have taken to wearing Kevlar stockings. Dennis Seidenberg, who knows a bit about blade injuries, spoke about the issue. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Speaking of blade injuries, the ceremonial puck drop was made by a high-school player who suffered a slice to the wrist and the trainer whose quick action likely saved his life. [<a href="">EagleTribune</a>]</li>

<li> Did you know there's etiquette for plus/minus among players? I didn't. [<a href="">TheScore</a>]</li>
