Senators slip by Bruins to cap home-and-home set

Updated: December 28, 2013

Ottawa, ON ( – Bobby Ryan’s late marker, coming after a
potential Bruins’ go-ahead goal was wiped out due to review, gave Ottawa a 4-3
victory over Boston in the back end of a home-and-home set.

Zack Smith, Patrick Wiercioch and Cory Conacher also tallied for the Senators,
who avenged a 5-0 loss on Friday’s opener and won for just the second time in
their last six.

Craig Anderson came up with 29 saves for the win after being shelled for four
scores in the third period at Boston.

Jarome Iginla, Daniel Paille and David Warsofsky scored for the Bruins, who
fell short in their quest for a four-game win streak.

Tuukka Rask started, but was pulled after yielding three goals on 12 shots.
Chad Johnson finished up with 17 saves, but allowed the winner.

Warsofsky forged a 3-3 deadlock on his first career score at 6:36 of the
third, and the Bruins were denied their first lead of the contest as a video
review revealed that Iginla intentionally kicked in a puck at the left
post near the midway point.

Ryan then gave the Senators a 4-3 edge when he beat Johnson with a backhander
under the crossbar to cap a breakaway with 4:35 to play.

The Bruins were all over Anderson with Johnson pulled and a power play in
the final two minutes of regulation, but failed to come up with an equalizer
despite several shots and more quality chances.
