The Boston Bruins and Ottawa Senators have played some intense, physical games this season. Tuesday night’s showdown at TD Garden was no different, as the third-place Bruins welcomed the second-place Sens for a pivotal game in the playoff race.
B’s defenseman Torey Krug and Senators defenseman Dion Phaneuf got into a minor scuffle at the end of the second period, with each player trying to rattle the other.
Krug quickly put the incident behind him, as he tied the score with a power-play goal just 17 seconds into the third period, although the B’s went on to lose 3-2.
The goal was Krug’s seventh of the season, and it also gave him a new career high with 48 points. He’s increased his scoring total in each of the last two campaigns.
