There is no universe in which McAvoy goes between his legs like that under Cassidy. [/hottake]

I'm glad they won. Man, I guess I am going to have to get used to the idea that Ottawa is pretty good? A bad match-up? Rises to the occasion? I mean, the Bruins won and all but that was no laugher.

The first loss to the Sens was early season, where the Bruins were having a lot of defensive breakdowns and Swayman was struggling. The second was a shootout loss.

In other words I wouldn't put too much stock that the Sens are some particularly tough matchup. They have a lot of offensive skill so they can and will cash in on mistakes (see Grz's brutal turnover resulting in the lone goal against today).

Honestly I think today would've been much easier if the Bruins got a PP goal or two—they're still struggling a bit there.

Could be blue car syndrome, but they seem to have a pretty heavy forecheck that led to a couple Bs issues and giveaways, including for the only goal.
