A weak Bruins forecheck allowed the Senators to get on the board early in Saturday night’s contest.
With a different cast of characters on the ice for the B’s against Ottawa, the Bruins struggled to get in a rhythm during the first period. Ottawa took advantage of the out-of-sync Bruins, beating their opponents down the ice and weaving through them with relative ease as the Sens fired off a wrist shot on the net.
Cody Ceci‘s shot was blocked, but Patrick Wiercioch pounced on the rebound, and he was able to light the lamp to give the Senators a 1-0 lead in the first period.
