Erik Karlsson Contributing On Offense, Defense This Season For Senators

The Boston Bruins face the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night as their big week continues. The Senators only are four points ahead of the Bruins in the Atlantic Division, and Erik Karlsson has contributed both offensively and defensively for Ottawa.

The Senators defenseman leads the NHL in blocked shots with 194 and only is five points behind San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns, who leads the Norris Trophy race. The Bruins will have to find a way to get shots off around Karlsson in order to earn a win Tuesday night.
