Bruins 2, Senators 1 (OT)
Mike McKenna staged the show for the Ottawa Seanators Sunday.
He also helped Senators make the point.
Directly managed by McKenna's 42-saving achievement, possibly the Senators did not get a point in his / her first place when the club made a 2-1 decision over time to Boston Bruins in front of 13,148 at the Canadian Territorial Center.
Torey Krug won a pre-season winner at 3:07 p.m. The effect of Bruins on his & her; lost McKenna had never had access. Although McKenna did not just visit Brad Marchand in control, Mark Stone responded for Senators against Tuukka Rask.
"It was good. We always see it all the time and we can not ask it more," said Colin White, who founded Stone's sole goal.
Making sixth the only thing in the nickname since his call by Belleville from the American Hockey League, McKenna was strong. He gave the club a chance to win and that all Senators wanted their backup when they set out a rare break to No 1 Craig Anderson assistant.
The 14-4 targets for Boston were in the third time and that was when McKenna was so good; he was in his first home.
"I was feeling like myself and I felt how much I did a lot of work to make sure I was ready for that," said McKenna, who made a two- passport on Sean Kuraly in OT. "That's a credit to the goalie coach (Pierre Groulx) and my companions.
"This is probably the most (saved) in the NHL, but I have such games in other places to. I have been in the past sense. The fight was so hard tonight. It was a bit of a battle with the two teams who hit just a beautiful game. ; in my opinion. "
Coming over 2-1 over a period over the Saturday Penguins of Pittsburgh, both teams of the National Hockey League team were in backdrop situations. Bruins arrived until morning on Sunday morning after a 6-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafan at home.
The challenge was difficult for Senators. The club is playing without six regulators due to injury and Raonaid Guy Boucher's coach that Boston had been over Ottawa in the last 18 months.
Boucher was pleased that Senators walked away with three of the four points in both games.
"I thought we would be the players in general, if you're watching all the weekend, and showing it, many people did not think we would get one point in this weekend with big teams coming in, "said Boucher.
"Give up one goal but in the management of each game? I am very proud of our people. They gave everything they had. They are made up of them, Now there's nothing left in the tank. It was a huge team effort in every game and it was very close. "
Over 40 minutes, this was a hard battle with the targets from 27-23 a & # 39; leaving Boston and the score 1-1 attached. McKenna was similar to his work and did a good job while Rask was a coming in with stops as long as the Senators went to; Strive to make sure that this game was even.
The Sets needed to play most of the second time by just five defendants after going to & # 39; giving 17 minutes in Ben Harpur in penalties for release their hands by Sean Kuraly in Boston.
The Bruins tied him to his power when Marchand fled home the eighth season at home at 7:49 from the second. Standing in the circle, he met McKenna on the side of the glass and b. That's the first thing with its & # 39; the club's benefit to him in four games.
The Senators were lead 1-0 after 20 minutes. Outshot 12-11 with the Bruins, McKenna was similar to the work that the Senators did not deliver a lot of scout opportunities. The first time ended with a 5-on-3 power game for Ottawa, but it did not; The club can be finished second.
Stone opened the scoring by providing a very good food from White, and # 39; hit Rask on the side of the stick at 12:51 of the first one. White appeared rapidly to help set up the untiring giant with the Bruins that was seized and Stone was easily screened on its face. 15th of the season.
"We are still making progress to find out where we want to work hard," said Senators Zack Smith. "We need to say that we are very quick here, but McKenna is good to come in here and he stood on his head for many of the savings and so it's good to know when doing We make mistakes your back. "
The depths of the Seanators are tested.
Although Christian Jaros blueliner is listed as a daily victim of abuse, the club was also without an old defender, Dylan DeMelo, The trip may not have three games that start Dama's night against the Nashville Broochs.
DeMelo is outdoors with a high body rash that can be done in the & # 39; First time beat from Pittsburgh & Riley Sheahan. DeMelo finished the game but Erik Burgdoerfer had to remember the club on Sunday morning and was opposed to Bruins.
"I'd like to tell you that it's everyday, but we do not know if it's going on the trip. We'll see," said Boucher before the game. "He played, which is a character statement because he needed and he knew it, but now he gets a little worse.
"We need to make sure we take care of it."
The Senators leave Monday to open a three-game road trip in Nashville and after it's off, Boucher's game said DeMelo would not be on the road. The Analysts will be remembered on and forth by AHL user to & # 39; club in Belleville before leaving.
DeMelo's loss is huge. Founded in the contract by Erik Karlsson to the San Jose Sharks in September, DeMelo has been a strong increase. He has been a strong defense partner for Thomas Chabot and is 18:53 minutes per game.
"It's been a great job. It's a good person, it's good to be around the room and it's pretty beautiful," said Boucher. "One of the people who make the environment better and so lose it, we hope there are too many games.
"This is another loss. We have very little loss here."
The club is already ahead of Matt Duchene, Bobby Ryan and Jean-Gabriel Pageau with Mark Borowiecki. He lost the ninth game only on Sunday and there is no timetable for his return.
When the water is there, it will hit the & # 39; case, especially after losing Duchene and Ryan on Thursday against the Habs.
"Without the NHL," said Boucher, "especially for protection. You think you have lots of protectors and, suddenly, they fall like flies. And you're losing people at their destination, it will make a big difference.
"We are fortunate to have Harpur and it was good to record with (GM) Pierre (Dorion) to insert (Justin) Falk. He's falling into In the right time and played it very well (Saturday). Harpur is getting better and better every day and helping us. We have enough people to do the job. "
In terms of Jaros, it may not be long and he could do the tour but to be later on a week.
"It's not a big thing but he can not play," said Boucher.
