Veteran Players’ Costly Mistakes Plague Bruins In OT Loss To Senators

The Boston Bruins squandered a golden opportunity Saturday at the Canadian Tire Centre.

The Bruins held a two-goal third-period lead in Game 2 of their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series, but the Ottawa Senators mounted a furious comeback en route to an 4-3 overtime win.

The Bruins’ roster features several young players, but it actually was a few veterans who committed costly mistakes in Saturday’s loss. Most notable was Zdeno Chara’s delay-of-game penalty in the waning moments of the third period.
