Colin Miller ready to return for Bruins tonight

In any event, Ryan poured salt in the wound by potting the game victor, and all the Bruins can do now is put the loss behind them and do whatever it takes to win game four, because they cannot afford to go back to Ottawa for game five facing elimination.

Coming off back-to-back overtime wins, the Ottawa Senators are in position to take command of their opening round National Hockey League playoff series against the Boston Bruins. But Turris understands victories from here on in will be very hard to come by.

And completing a night of all-overtime hockey, the Anaheim Ducks and Calgary Flames also needed sudden death to decide things in Calgary last night, and Corey Perry made the Flames pay for blowing a three goal lead in regulation, scoring the game victor in OT to give the Ducks a 5-4 win and putting Calgary on the brink of elimination, down now three games to none.

Krejci said it was disappointing to sit out the start of the series.

"But chasing the puck out of his hands, good angles, good sticks to pucks and be physical when you can, which is easier said than done with any good player". But then Boston finally got going on the offensive end.

The Bruins were able to steal home-ice advantage by claiming a 4-3 overtime win on Wednesday and that put the pressure on Ottawa after dropping the opening game of the series. But Boucher was quick to say both victories are in the past. "It was nice to see a big move from him", said Karlsson. You make him work through your body to get up ice, it makes it a lot tougher for him over the course of two weeks.

Miller suffered a lower-body injury in Game 1 and missed Games 2 and 3. "It was a little bit of fluke play and he made a good read and he saw I had time and I pull something out of my back pocket and it worked out".

Ottawa has won four straight at TD Garden dating back to last season and is 6-1 against Boston in 2016-17.

The Bruins will look to even their series up at two wins apiece as they host the Senators on Wednesday evening. Fans showed their displeasure by littering the ice with debris, including bottles filled with liquids. Boston head coach Bruce Cassidy called the ruling "terrible" but acknowledged that it was on his team to kill the penalty regardless, which they failed to do.

"Yeah, I was literally thinking, "Not this (crap) again, ' " MacArthur said of the Bruins" rally on Monday.

"I don't know if you can neutralize that first [saucer pass in Game 3]". Ottawa was awarded the man advantage when Boston's Riley Nash was whistled for roughing 4:38 into overtime after throwing a punch at Ryan.

"I thought the last game we used the crowd's energy incredibly well", Ryan said.

The captain was absolutely right in his assessment of his team's play through the first two games, as they played well enough to win both but almost came away empty handed as many times.

He never hit the National Hockey League level with the Kings, getting dealt to the Bruins in the swap that sent Martin Jones to Boston and Milan Lucic to Los Angeles in the summer of 2015.
