A third-period rocket shot by Dennis Seidenberg helped Boston pull out a tight 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday, extending their Northeast Division lead to six-points.
The Bruins looked a bit sluggish to start the game, falling behind 3-1 until a late second-period goal by Milan Lucic cut the lead in half. A rejuvenated Bruins team took the ice in the third and a couple of quick scores by Brad Marchand and Seidenberg iced the win for Boston.
Even with the win, Claude Julien's team still has some issues to address and an oncoming schedule that isn't likely to be forgiving.
The B's remain a bit short-handed, as one of their best scoring options, Nathan Horton, remains out with concussion-like symptoms. Although, Andrew Ference's return from a three-game suspension will certainly be a welcome addition to the Bruins lineup, as Tim Thomas is in need of all the help he can get on the defensive front.
The Carolina Hurricanes, who have been a serious roadblock for the Bruins in recent years, come to town on Thursday night. Then the road gets even tougher on Saturday, as Evgeni Malkin and the Pittsburgh Penguins pay the Bruins a visit for a possible playoff preview.
There should be plenty for The Instigators to talk about at 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday. But, they still need a little help, which means there's still time for TC, Brick and the gang to answer your questions.
