The Sens lost their fourth in a row Tuesday night, dropping their first game after the All Star break 4-3 in Boston after taking a 3-1 lead in the 2nd period. The Bruins scored 3 unanswered to take the valuable 2 points for their divisional rival. The Sens were on the bad end of some poor luck (Anderson let one in from centre ice) and worse officiating, again. Something has to be done, as the Bruins went the whole game without being shorthanded, which is a big deal considering they are the NHL's most penalized team. One of the refs was Dan O'Rourke, who was the one who called Karlsson a diver in the Anaheim game.
Other thoughts from the game:
- Loved to see Jason Spezza getting a bit physical tonight. A motivated Spezza is a great thing.
- Anderson was sloppy tonight I thought. He kept them in the game early but otherwise I thought he looked kinda shaky, especially on the centre ice goal, which ended up costing us the game. I think he may be too tired and playing too much.
- Our pace was a lot better tonight than it past few games. So was the effort level.
- The Bruins are really good. They're mt favorites for the cup.
- Phillips can't be out muscled by the tiny Marchand on the game tying goal.
- The Foligno-Turris-Alfie line was a force most of the night.
- Nice to see Colin Greening getting back on the scoreboard.
- Michalek had a rare assist tonight as well.
- This was the first time we've lost 4 in a row in regulation this season
