Bruins Vs. Senators: Flailing Bruins Look To Regroup Against Streaking Senators

The Boston Bruins look to snap a three-game losing skid on Tuesday night when they host the Ottawa Senators at 7 p.m. (TV/Radio: NESN/98.5 The Sports Hub).

The Boston Bruins look to snap a three-game losing skid Tuesday night when they host the Ottawa Senators at 7 p.m. (TSN, RDS HD, NESN HD).

The Senators (7-5-0) have won six straight, including a 3-2 victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday. Ottawa has surrendered more goals against than any other NHL team, but features a high-powered offense led by Jason Spezza (15 points) and Milan Michalek (13).

The Bruins lost both legs of a home-and-away series with the Montreal Canadiens, falling 2-1 Thursday and 4-2 Saturday. Tyler Seguin and Milan Lucic notched goals Saturday, but Tuukka Rask's 23 saves were not enough to hold off the streaking Canadiens.

Boston has scored just 22 goals this season, fewer than all but two Eastern Conference opponents.

"It's seems we don't have goal-scoring luck," said Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara. "But we can't be frustrated, we have to keep trying."
