Rask Blanks Ottawa; Bruins Complete Perfect Road Trip

It was not the most entertaining victory of the season, but the Bruins won their sixth and final game of their road trip Tuesday night in Ottawa, completing the trip a perfect 6-0. TUUUUUUUKK made 33 saves for his second shutout of the season. Early in the third Horton shoveled the game winning goal past net minder Craig Anderson for the only goal of the contest. It appeared to be a fairly harmless play when McQuaid fired a low hard shot on net, but with Marchand camped out in front of the net, Horton beat the defender timing his approach perfectly to chip the deflection into a gaping cage. Since coming over from Colorado Anderson had been playing well, but he did not receive any goal support on this night.
Have to give the Senators credit for continuing to push until the final buzzer. The Bruins of course did their part to make things interesting taking a couple of penalties. The charging call on Campbell was a little soft in our eyes; if that play happened in the playoffs it would not have been a penalty. We were a little surprised that Ottawa did not pull the goalie with Marchand in the box for the 6 on 4 advantage. Yeah Boston could have free shots at the empty net on the penalty kill, but that was likely Ottawa’s best opportunity to tie things up with one of Boston’s best penalty killers in the box. I guess it does not really matter. The Senators are fighting for better lottery position and the less points they secure the better.
Big game Thursday night against Tampa back at the Garden. If the Bruins are serious about passing Tampa and catching Philly for the top spot, their cannot be a let down back at home after a long road trip. Those are almost always trap games. Luckily Tampa will have played the night before in Jersey.
