Bruins Drop Game 4 Despite Great Performance By Rask

Ottawa Senators forward Bobby Ryan scored the winning goal for the second straight game as the Sens defeated the Boston Bruins to take a 3-1 series lead.

The game was a goaltending duel between Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask and Sens goalie Craig Anderson.

It was Anderson's fourth career shutout, while Rask made 26 saves for the B's with Ryan's goal the only one to get by the Bruins goalie.

The Bruins had a goal disallowed after Sens coach Guy Boucher challenged it, and upon review it was seen that Noel Acciari was offsides.

Boston pulled their goalie with almost a full two minutes still left on the board. The team managed a couple of good scoring chances including two solid ones from Brad Marchand, but Sens goalie Craig Anderson wasn't letting anything by him.

The B's will have to give it all they got as they'll try and push the series back to Boston for at least one more game. It might prove to be quite the challenge, the Bruins were winless in four games against the Sens during the regular season and haven't dominated Ottawa in any of the four games so far.
