8 tweets that defined Game 2 of Sens-Bruins series

The good vibes were stifled less than two minutes later, when Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson got caught trying to play the puck and gifted Boston a short-handed goal.
The 19-year-old, held without a point in Games 1 and 2, sped through the neutral zone with speed and fired a shot that ricocheted off John Carlson, Schmidt's face and Matthews' body before finally hitting Holtby. "We're looking to start the right way - like we finished (Saturday) - and hopefully play well enough to win the game".
Undeterred, Ottawa put itself on the board at 7:15 in the first off of a fantastic feed from captain Erik Karlsson.
McAvoy played a lot of minutes, played very well, but also showed plenty of rookie mistakes that can and should be ironed out by Monday night.
Broken Spoon: Oft-frustrating Ryan Spooner is the only Boston forward without a shot on goal in either of the first two games.
It didn't get much better for the Bruins in the second period, with an interference call against Kevan Miller leading to Ottawa's third goal of the night.
The Bruins took a 3-1 lead late in the period with a power-play goal as Bergeron tipped a David Pastrnak shot.
The Senators are 4-1 in their last five against the Atlantic and 5-2 in their last seven overall while the Bruins are 1-4 in their last five and winless in their last five home games against a team with a winning road record.
Why did USA really attack Syria?
The United States and its allies say the Syrian military carried out the Idlib attack, something Syria has already denied. Secretary Tillerson told President Putin peace can not happen in Syria while Assad is still in power.
Tom Brady Skipping White House Visit
He discussed why he chose to not attend the White House visit on CNN Wednesday night from his home in Arizona. Besides Brady, at least six members of the team were not expected at Wednesday's event.
But the Capitals generated few shots or scoring chances beyond the goals, and the Maple Leafs pushed back with Matthews' first goal of the series.
Neither team had scored a goal in the opening period in either of the first two games, but the Senators quickly halted that anomaly.
For the second straight game, the Bruins erupted for three goals in the second to bring an anxious crowd to life. After the start, we didn't really give up a whole lot. "It (Wednesday's game) is going to probably be the most intense game of the series so far". They're a good team even if though they're battling some injuries.
Mark Borowiecki remains the lone injury for the Sens in the series after leaving Game #2 midway through the first period but head coach Guy Boucher mentioned earlier today that he is continuing to progress.
Ottawa had Marc Methot back in the lineup for the first time since suffering a laceration to his pinky finger March 23.
Viktor Arvidsson, who scored the only goal in Game 1, provided a ideal screen on the play, with Ellis' shot going between his legs on the way to the net.
"I always say that you make your money during the season, but you make your reputation in the playoffs, and right now he's showing everybody that he's a gamer", Boucher said. Sometimes to grab it and keep it for the duration of a series, a player or a team needs to do something unorthodox to ensure it lands in favor of their squad. "My experience is the games get tougher and tougher, urgency grows on both parties and it will just be great hockey".
