Bruins bracing for Senators and 'a tough system to play against'

After scoring just six goals and going 0-3-1 in four games against the Ottawa Senators this season, the Boston Bruins definitely know what they’re in for in a first round playoff series against their Atlantic Division rivals. It’s going to be frustrating bumping up against the 1-3-1 trap employed by Sens head coach Guy Boucher and it might even be boring at times given how much Ottawa wants to really clog up the neutral zone, but it’s also a challenge that the B’s are determined to meet head on after two years out of the playoffs. After missing out for the last couple of years this makes it all the more special,” said Brad Marchand. You lose your mind a bit and you try to skate through the neutral zone, and that’s where you get caught up and they get their opportunities.
