NHL Monday action features the Ottawa Senators visiting the Boston Bruins.

The Ottawa Senators scored twice in the third period to snap a 3-3 tie in upending the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. Ottawa picked up their first win of the young season behind opportune scoring and a strong performance in the nets from Craig Anderson.

Thomas Chabot paced the Senators with a pair of goals while Dylan Demelo, Chris Tierney and Mark Stone also lit the lamp while Zack Thomas added a pair of helpers. 

The Maple Leafs scored three times in the second period with Morgan Reilly, Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner lighting the lamp which each also adding assists. Craig Andrson led Ottawa with 34 saves while Frederik Andersen absorbed the loss with four goals allowed on 23 shots.

The Boston Bruins rebounded from a 7-0 drubbing from Washington on opening day to down the Buffalo Sabres 4-0 on Thursday. Boston looked lifeless against the Capitals but took their frustration out on the Sabres.

The balanced Bruins attack received scoring from Zdeno Charo, Ryan Donato, David Pastrnak and Patrice Bergeron while Brad Marchand logged three assists. Jaroslav Halak picked up the win for Boston with 32 stops with Carter Hutton giving up three goals on 25 shots.

Senators are 0-4 in their last 4 games following a win and over is 5-1 in Senators last 6 overall and over is 5-1 in Senators last 6 when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game. Over is 3-0-1 in Bruins last 4 games playing on 3 or more days rest and Bruins are 0-4 in their last 4 Monday games and over is 4-0-3 in Bruins last 7 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game. Senators are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings and over is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings in Boston and road team is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings. 

I think the Bruins still have the taste of that 7-0 loss to Washington and Ottawa will get their full attention…

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
