This is without a doubt, Ottawa's worst game over the past 6. I suspect they are a little intimadated by the Bruins, but also credit to the Brruins, they are playing hard. I expect a better effort from Ottawa in the next two periods.
They certainly aren't playing simple hockey. Look good at times, try to make the high risk plays and get burned for it. They may have won the cup, but pretty plays isn't what got them to the show. They need Mark Recchi yelling this at them in the dressing room.
I'm no expert but I think they ran into a couple of tremendous goaltending performances from Bryzgalov, Varlamov and Ward. That hurt their offensive confidence. Krejci got hurt. Horton has looked like a player coming off a concussion, and still does. But it all started with a couple of hot goalies looking to make a statement against the champs.
