Bruins lead Senators, 3-0, after two

Mike Fisher helped negate a Daniel Alfredsson [1] goal, as every inch of Fisher’s body was in the crease when Alfredsson beat Tim Thomas [2] for what appeared to be the Senator’s first tally of the game. With the goal being immediately waved off and Tyler Seguin [3] and Milan Lucic [4] striking for Boston, the Bruins hold a 3-0 lead as the two teams enter the third period.

Seguin showed a good burst through the neutral zone and took a beautiful pass from Mark Recchi [5] on the man advantage to beat Senators goalie Brian Elliott for a power play goal. The goal was the rookie’s second in as many games and the third of his NHL [6] career.

The Lucic goal came on the second breakaway of the shift for the first line. Nathan Horton [7] had a breakaway coming out of the box on a hooking call but got too fancy and Brian Elliot didn’t bite. Lucic beat the Sens’ netminder five-hole for his fourth goal of the season. The shutout remains in tact for Tim Thomas, as he looks to pick up sixth win in six games.
