Ryan Callahan contributed two second period goals for the New York Rangers to defeat the Ottawa Senators 4-1 Tuesday at Scotiabank Place. The Senators were skating strong to start with a Milan Michalek score 3:51 into the contest. From there the Rangers took over, netting all four of their game total goals in the second. They kept the lead through the final block as both squads failed to further produce on the offensive end.
“I just thought we stayed with it,” said Rangers coach John Tortorella. “Even though we were down 1-0 – the first shot goes in – I thought we played a good first period. I thought we were pretty good through the neutral zone, our forechecking was coming, we give up an odd-man rush that cost us but we stayed with it and continued to just try to play a simple game.” The Rangers are next set to take on Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins tomorrow night while the Senators hit the road to matchup with the Carolina Hurricanes.
Tim Thomas stopped everything in sight as the Boston Bruins went on to defeat the Ottawa Senators 2-0 yesterday at Scotiabank Place. The contest marked the veteran All-Stars tenth consecutive shutout against Ottawa. “Oh, that’s 10 in a row? I had no idea,” said Thomas. “I didn’t know it was like that. I don’t know — you know, I like the nice crisp air when we come visit here. When you step outside the hotel I think this has the cleanest-smelling air around, I don’t know if that has something to do with it.”
Senators Goalie Brian Elliot collected 27 saves himself while holding the B’s scoreless through the first two periods. Patrice Bergeron found the net early in the third block, followed by a Marco Sturm score with seven minutes to go in regulation. From there Thomas was able to hold the Senators struggling offense as he had been all game.
“I think both goalies played extremely well,” said Bruins captain Zdeno Chara. “It was a really tight game and we just stayed patient and eventually scored those goals.” The Bruins will next host the Atlanta Thrashers tomorrow night at 7:00 PM. Boston Bruins tickets are now available!
