"After playing all 82 games you miss at least the first two games of the playoffs was disappointing, frustrating, but you have to work hard to get back at it and we've been doing that", he said.

After only registering three shots on net in the first period, the Bruins found themselves down 3-0 just a few minutes into the second period after a power play goal from Ottawa's Mike Hoffman 3:42 into the period.

For a score line that mirrored Saturday's Game 3 (a 4-3 overtime win in Ottawa), the way that things in between played out couldn't have been much different in Game 4.

Hoffman scored his second of the game on a power play early in the third, and it looked like the Senators were home and cooled.

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - Dion Phaneuf waited a long time for this moment.

Phaneuf, a 12-year veteran, scored the victor from the point as Alex Burrows provided a screen. It feels great to do it here, in front of our fans.

That led to a breakaway goal by Boston's David Backes.

Boston's Patrice Bergeron, regarded as one of the NHL's best, was just 13-16.

Rask is coming off a below-average performance in Game 2 where he allowed four goals on 29 shots as the Bruins lost in overtime.

The Senators had rallied from a 3-1 deficit with a two-goal third period to force overtime. Teams that take 2-0 series leads hold an all-time record of 305-48 in the playoffs (86.4 percent).

Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said Krejci will take warm-ups before a final decision is made.

Bruins defenseman Joe Morrow, in his first game since January 22, played 19:59 and had three hits and two blocked shots.

Blue Jackets: Forward Matt Calvert was suspended for one game for his cross-check to the head of Pittsburgh's Tom Kuhnhackl late in the third period of a Game 2 loss.

Only a handful of players went on the ice after a team meeting and video session at Boston's practice facility in the nearby suburb Brighton, Mass.

Neither team has appeared willing to give an inch in the offensive zone - and it's not in the Senators' DNA to start taking risks, most definitely not in the playoffs - but something's gotta give.

"You don't want to put your foot off the gas there, you want to keep at it and not really change anything", Stafford said.

"They capitalized on their chances but we're in here for each other and we pick each other up". Senators take Game 3.

"Great feeling", MacArthur said.

"I think it was pretty selfish of me, you know...you can't make that play", Nash told CSN New England.

Reaction from the Senators bench was just as good as the crowd's as MacArthur is respected from teammates and coaches alike.

No, the Senators weren't flawless by any stretch of the imagination in Game 2 when they erased a two-goal deficit to help set up defenceman Dion Phaneuf's game-winning goal, but they took steps in the right direction and the message from coach Guy Boucher on Sunday was that there are still areas the club needs to work on.

"When we think ahead, we're in trouble", he said.

Then, early in the second period, Hoffman scored on a power play, and the once-rocking Garden turned back into the same, somber atmosphere it had only 24 hours earlier when the Celtics gagged against the Chicago Bulls in Game 1 of their playoff series.

Borowiecki is listed day to day and will travel with the team to Boston.

The Bruins were already down to their ninth defenseman on the depth chart as Joe Morrow was in for an injured Colin Miller.
