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.

Check out the above video to see the first goal of the game in the Berkshire Bank Exciting Rewind.

As of March 30, the Berkshire Bank Foundation has raised $11,500 for Cradles to Crayons, which provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive -- at home, at school and at play.



Earlier this season, the foundation raised $10,000 for Soldier On, a private nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness, and $12,100 for Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide birthday parties to children experiencing homelessness.
