Phaneuf scores in OT as Senators tie series against Bruins

Game 4 is Wednesday night.

And, the Ottawa Senators were able to overcome a meltdown in Beantown.

The Bruins took a 3-1 lead late in the period with a power-play goal as Bergeron tipped a David Pastrnak shot.

Asked what his team needs to do in Game 4, Boston winger Brad Marchand, a 39-goal scorer in the regular season who scored the Game 1 victor before being blanked in the next two, said, "Definitely a better start".

There is no way this game ever should have gotten to OT. Craig Anderson will continue manning goaltending duties as he will face off against Tuukka Rask as both goaltenders look to get back on track after a high scoring affair in game three.

"Every game is a new game and it's a new story".

"I always say that you make your money during the season, but you make your reputation in the playoffs, and right now he's showing everybody that he's a gamer", Senators coach Guy Boucher said of Ryan.

"The second period we didn't really come out the way that we wanted and we needed a response and I think that we definitely gave them that in the third", Karlsson said. While they didn't produce with the chance, they did gain momentum. He also credited the work of the team's secondary lines for keeping them alive in the last two games.

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. "For us, it's not about what's happened in the past, it's about the present". The Senators ultimately won 4-3 on Bobby Ryan's overtime goal. At the other end, Rask was fortunate when a blast by Mike Hoffman, seeking his third goal of the game, rang off the iron.

Hoffman's power-play snipe 3:42 into the second put the Sens ahead 3-0.

The Bruins are hoping to start healing up a bit, too, and forward Noel Acciari could be the next to return.

Notes: Sens D Ben Harpur made his playoff debut, replacing Mark Borowiecki after he suffered a lower-body injury in Game 2.

An interference call against Senators forward Kyle Turris at 14:27 gave Boston an opportunity to claw back from its early deficit, but the Bruins struggled to generate much of anything against Anderson - recording zero shots on goal during both the man advantage and over the final 9:47 of the first period.

While Anderson's save on Backes might have been the difference, the Senators need more consistent goaltending from their starter, who has faced the fewest shots of any goalie who has played more than 33 minutes in this playoffs, but has the second worst save percentage.

The Senators extended the game with a third-period rally that saw them score twice in a 2:20 span. A flawless saucer pass by captain Erik Karlsson from his own end sent Hoffman in alone and he did a ideal backhand reach across to beat Rask on the glove side at 7:15 to open the scoring for the Senators.

Karlsson's long pass was right to a breaking Hoffman, who deked and scored with one hand on his stick, slipping the puck just by Rask.
