Finally, the losing streak is over!
The Boston Bruins were a little sloppy in the beginning of the first period and the beginning of the second period, but they were solid the rest of the game. This wasn't just any game either, it was against a stacked Ottawa Senators team. A team that is Canadian, and a division rival.
Dany Heatley scored within a minute of the game, from Jason Spezza and Chris Phillips. (That is what I meant when I said "stacked team". Heatley - Spezza - Phillips) Bergeron tied it up on the power play a little later from Bochenski.
The Bruins gave up another goal early in the second period at the very end of a Senators power play. The Bruins didn't let it phase them though. They played hard and just a couple minutes later, Petr Kalus score dhis first NHL goal of his career with a shot in front of the net. Seconds later, Zdeno Chara's long fast drive from the point went in and the Bruins had a 3-2 lead. A hard fought third period by the Bruins defense and Joey Macdonald gave the Bruins the win. Joey Macdonald and Ray Emery both had fantastic games making great saves. By the way, for the record, if I could choose any goalie to play for the Boston Bruins, it would be Ray Emery. His fight while smiling is legendary.
The Bruins play the Penguins tonight at 7. The game is at the garden, where they will be announcing the 7th player award. (I'm thinking it's Marc Savard or Glen Murray. However because of fan voting, it could easily go to Bergeron, Sturm, or Chara)
