  • Bruins on the brink of elimination with Game 4 loss

Charlie McAvoy appeared to score his first National Hockey League goal after his slapper from the blue line beat Anderson at 10:49 of the second, but after a Senators challenge the call was reversed, ruling centre Noel Acciari was offside. But a shot at redemption has come during the playoffs, and the Boston Bruins have been victimized by Ryan's resurgence.

Game 5 is Friday night in Ottawa.

"We're going to take care of our part and we know we're going to have to play our best game so far in order to have a chance", said Karlsson.

This time around, Ottawa, which coughed up a 3-0 lead in Game 3 before Ryan won it in overtime after a controversial roughing call on Riley Nash, was on its defensive game.

The Bruins, who were winless in four games against the Senators in the regular season, will try to force the series back to Boston with a victory in Ottawa in Game 5 on Friday night.

"We worked so hard to get home ice for the first round of the playoffs", Senators forward Zach Smith said. "We've been on the other side". We were able to make the saves on them tonight. The overtime wins in Games 2 and 3 marked the first time in franchise history Ottawa has won back-to-back games in OT.

The game was tied at zero until the 5:49 mark of the third period when Bobby Ryan beat Tuukka Rask. Ryan pulled it from his backhand to his forehand and swiped at it as Zdeno Chara dove behind Rask into the crease to try to knock the puck away from the goal line. "It's nice and slow and strategic moves", Anderson said. "It was a game that goes down to the wire, two teams that have battled it all year long with one-goal games". "We played our system to a T. We weathered the storm early and just stuck with it and made good on our chance in the third".

Interim coach Bruce Cassidy was willing to tip his cap to the Senators for the defensive job that they did down the stretch. "It's just a matter of trying to gain it back and maybe that's one of the small things we can progress at a bit - when we lose that momentum, trying to get it back as quick as possible".

ABOUT THE BRUINS: Boston again was without four injured defensemen in Game 3 and at least three of them will be sidelined in Game 4, although Colin Miller skated at Tuesday's practice and will be evaluated at Wednesday's morning skate.

Sens left-winger Tom Pyatt left in the first and didn't return after suffering an upper-body injury on a hit by Bruins defenceman Kevan Miller at 2:48 of the period.

"We knew they were going to be hungry and they were going to be desperate", said Senators coach Guy Boucher. Bruins C Patrice Bergeron, a three-time Selke Trophy victor, was named a finalist for the award for the sixth time Wednesday.
