Colin Miller Ready To Return For Bruins In Game 4 Vs. Senators

Bobby Ryan's overtime power-play goal gave the Senators their second straight 4-3 OT win and the lead in the first-round Eastern Conference series Monday night. Ottawa added another goal early in the second before Boston produced a dramatic comeback.

Defenseman Colin Miller is expected to play Wednesday in Boston's Game 4 matchup with the Ottawa Senators, head coach Bruce Cassidy confirmed after an optional morning skate at TD Garden.

This time Bruins rallied from a 3-0 deficit with three goals in second period, tying the game on a power play goal by David Pastrnak.

The thinking was that with hard-hitting Noel Acciari entering the series in Game 3 and the B's holding last change at home in Boston, things would get a lot more challenging for Karlsson.

"I always say that you make your money during the season, but you make your reputation in the playoffs, and right now he's showing everybody that he's a gamer", Boucher said.

Toronto trailed 2-0 in the first period, and then 3-1 early in the second before Kadri and Nylander scored 4:07 apart late to tie the score in the final minute of the period.

The refs didn't score the overtime goal or force the Bruins to blow coverage on the deciding tally from, who else, Ryan, but it's still frustrating when the officials play such a strong factor in the outcome of a game, especially when it's a playoff game between two teams who battled pretty evenly all night long. That poor officiating paved the way for the Sens to take a 2-1 series lead on a power-play goal. "It (Wednesday's game) is going to probably be the most intense game of the series so far".

Ottawa was the better team in Game 3 and rightfully won.

The Senators outshot the Bruins 10-3 in the first, taking advantage of several defensive breakdowns on their side of the ice.

Monday's game ended amid the controversy regarding the penalty call that led to the winning goal - Ryan's second goal in three games in the series and his third in the last four going back to the regular-season finale, after a 13-game goal drought.

What the Boston Red Sox did to Hideki Matsui, the Boston Bruins need to do the hockey equivalent to Erik Karlsson.

Then Brassard got on the board, slipping a slap shot by Rask for his second goal in two games. The 26-year-old Swede has tremendous speed, stops and starts on a dime, controls the puck as if it were velcroed to his stick and can ignite the Ottawa offense - especially so on the power play - as effortlessly as pushing a button on an automatic vehicle starter.

"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".

Whether he returns to the lineup will likely be another game-time decision.
