Bruins Vs. Senators: Boston Comes Up Short, Loses 2-1 In Overtime

Lane Macdermid scored the only goal for the defending Stanley Cup champions, but the Ottawa Senators responded with a goal in the second period and a score in overtime, clinching a 2-1 win in the preseason opener for both teams on Wednesday night in Ottawa.

Macdermid's goal game at the 7:01 mark in the second period and was assisted by Shawn Thornton and Adam McQuaid. Boston's lead was short lived, though, as Brian Lee scored at the 8:18 mark in the period, assisted by Nick Foligno and Peter Regin, to knot the score at 1-1.

Neither squad lit the lamp in the third period, forcing overtime. It didn't take long for Ottawa to clinch the victory, as Mika Zibanejad scored at the 3:17 mark on assists from Lee and Foligno, giving the Senators a 2-1 victory.

Tuukka Rask played the entire game for the Bruins, turning away 34-of-36 shots in 63 minutes of ice time. Ottawa used two goaltenders, with Craig Anderson turning away 10-of-11 shots in nearly 30 minutes and Alex Auld turned away all 15 shots he faced in just under 33 minutes.

Boston hosts the New York Islanders in its next preseason game on Friday night.
