Bruins Lose All Thanks To The Refs
The Boston Bruins lose game three in overtime because the refs blew a call. All game the refs were letting them play like it should be. The Senators got away with plenty of penalties including the one in overtime.
One word Atrocious. The Bruins looked awful in the first. It was as if the whole team was in slow motion. The Senators scored two quick goals in. Mike Hoffman on the breakaway. His goal was a beauty and no fault went to Tuukka Rask. Also the pass by Erik Karlsson was just insane. Then just 30 seconds later Derek Brassard put the Sens up two.
The second did not start out any better and Hoffman potted his second of the game just 3:40 into the period on the power play. The I am not sure what Cassidy said but he said something right cause the B’s were flying after that goal. Noel Acciari started the scoring off. This was Acciari’s first playoff game and goal. Then just 40 second later David Backes scored the second on a semi-breakaway. A few minutes later the Bruins received a power play and they did not disappoint. The whole time they were trying to feed David Pastrnak the puck. Charlie McAvoy set him up the first time but the pass was in his feet. The next one was tape to tape and Pasta fired a laser by Craig Anderson to tie the game at three.
At this point it was like here we now the B’s are going to steamroll the Sens and make another Patriots Day comeback.
Nothing happened. Each team had chances but nothing went in.
“It was definitely a terrible start on our part,” Boston center Patrice Bergeron said. “That can’t happen this time of year. They took advantage of us not getting the first period we wanted, and we were playing catch-up hockey and definitely did a great job getting back in the game.”
Again the game went into overtime. Just like any OT every shot was a good shot and each team had plenty. Then the Sens had offensive zone time and the Riley Nash and Bobby Ryan were fighting for the puck. Nash lost his footing and Ryan punched Riley Nash in the head. Nash then gave him a jab back and Nash got called for roughing. Just bad officiating of the game.

Nash knows that he is still at fault and that it is the playoffs and you can’t make plays like that.
“I think it’s pretty selfish. You can’t make that play, you can’t put the refs in that position. Regardless of what happened before it, you can’t do it.” — Bruins forward Riley Nash on his roughing penalty 4:38 into overtime
Apparently this ref that made the call has been known to make game changing blown calls. He should not ref another game this playoffs, and I mean any game not just the B’s.
Game four is tomorrow night.
