Cassidy Unhappy After Bruins Fail To Come Back To Boston Up 2-0

The Boston Bruins were looking good in Game 2 of their playoff series against the Ottawa Senators.

The team entered the third period of Saturday's game up 3-1 and looked like they were on there way to heading back home up 2-0 in the series.

Unfortunately for the B's, things fell apart and the team ended up losing 4-3 in OT after Zdeno Chara took a delay of game penalty in the third period which carried over into the overtime period and Sens defenseman Dion Phaneuf would end up scoring to even the series 1-1.

`After the game head coach Bruce Cassidy was upset with the missed opportunity to take control of the series before heading back home.

"We wanted to make it 2-0," Cassidy said, per Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald. "I'm not going to sit here and tell you I'm satisfied with a split. We were 20 minutes away from being up 2-0. That's the way I look at it.

"No matter where we're playing, we're a good hockey club, home or on the road, and we go into every game with a game plan to win the game," he added. "So we're disappointed. Plain and simple."

The series which has proved to be really tight so far, will be nothing less than exciting and tightly contested when they drop the puck for Game 3.
