The Boston Bruins have their backs against the wall as they face off against the Ottawa Senators in a must-win Game 5 on Friday night.

The Bruins will have another shot at trying to contain Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson. After four games, Karlsson has five assists and a plus-3 rating with 27:39 TOI per in the first-round series.

It’s no surprise that the Senators’ 5-on-5 shot differential is directly affected when Karlsson is on the ice.
