The Ottawa Senators look to ride their momentum from a Game 2 comeback victory to a Game 3 win when they visit the Boston Bruins on Monday night at TD Garden. Ottawa was about to lose both games at home before erasing a two-goal deficit in the third period on Saturday before evening the series against the Bruins on an overtime goal by defenseman Dion Phaneuf. Forward Clarke MacArthur, who returned earlier this month after being sidelined since October 2015 due to a concussion, sent the Ottawa fans into a frenzy on Saturday when he scored for the first time in two years. MacArthur called it probably his “best moment” in hockey. Phanuef broke a 10-game point drought with his first three-point game of the season and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Goalie Craig Anderson was actually better in the Game 1 loss than on Saturday as he allowed three goals on 32 shots for an .897 save percentage. This is Anderson’s first postseason action since the 2014-15 season when he had a 0.97 goals against average in four games.


The Bruins knew they blew a big chance to put a stranglehold on the series with the Game 2 collapse, but now return to TD Garden where they were 23-17-1 this season. It was Boston who scored two third period goals in the Game 1 victory after trailing entering the final twenty minutes. Already minus center David Krejci and defensemen Torey Krug, Brandon Carlo and Colin Miller, Boston’s suffered another blow when blue-liner Adam McQuaid was hurt in Game 2. While all continue to be listed as day-to-day, there was some positive news on the injury front: Miller skated at Sunday’s practice and has a shot to return while forward Noel Acciari is expected to be available and take his place on the fourth line alongside Dominic Moore and Riley Nash. Defenseman Zdeno Chara, who had an assist on Saturday, logged a season-high 30:09 of ice time. Goaltender Tuukka Rask, who nearly shutout Ottawa in Game 1, surrendered four goals on 33 shots in the Game 2 loss.

Ottawa was pretty decent on the road until the end of the season when they dropped six of their last seven away from home. Boston may be banged-up, but so is everyone this time of year. The Bruins should be able to hold home ice in the next two games.
