NHL Preview from The Sports Network
Tuesday, April 11th (All times eastern)
Boston Bruins (29-35-14) at Ottawa Senators (50-20-8), 7:30 p.m.
(Sports Network) - The Ottawa Senators try to halt an ill-timed losing streak tonight when they welcome the Boston Bruins to Scotiabank Place.
The Sens have lost four straight games and have failed to jump ahead of Carolina in the race for the top spot in the East. Both teams have 108 points with four to play, and the Hurricanes host New Jersey tonight.
On Monday the Senators dropped a 3-2 tilt in Montreal, as Richard Zednik's goal midway through the third period lifted the Canadiens.
Dany Heatley and Andrej Meszaros netted goals for the slumping Senators, whose current losing streak marks a season high. Ray Emery, who continues to play in place of the injured Dominik Hasek, allowed three goals on 25 shots.
The Senators currently lead the idle Buffalo Sabres by six points in the Northeast Division race.
Ottawa will host Florida on Thursday.
Boston, meanwhile, has lost its last two games. On Monday, the Bruins dropped a 2-1 overtime tilt to visiting Washington, as Alexander Ovechkin tallied the game-winner with 90 seconds left in OT.
Mark Stuart netted the lone goal and Tim Thomas made 25 saves for the Bruins, who have lost six of their last seven games overall.
The Bruins will host Montreal on Thursday.
Boston is 4-3 against Ottawa this season, having won the last four meetings.
