Bruins lose to Senators, then eliminated

Boston won't make playoffs after Philadelphia victory

by Matt Kalman / Correspondent

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins were left to sit and watch to see if they would make the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

They won't.

Boston lost to the Ottawa Senators 6-1 at TD Garden on Saturday, a result that put the Detroit Red Wings into the playoffs and left the Bruins needing the Philadelphia Flyers to get only one point in their final two games. But the Flyers defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 to earn the second Eastern Conference wild card and knock the Bruins from contention.

Coach's Challenge: OTT @ BOS - 5:04 of First Period

Original call stands - good goal Boston Bruins @NHLdotcom

Situation Room: OTT vs. BOS

Situation Room: Pastrnak's goal stands after review

4/9/16: David Pastrnak scores on a breakaway and, after the Senators challenge for an offside penalty, the goal stands

  • 04:24 •

At 5:04 of the first period in the Senators/Bruins game, Ottawa requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Boston's David Pastrnak was off-side prior to his goal. 

Review was not conclusive in determining whether Boston was off-side prior to the goal. According to Rule 78.7, "If a review is not conclusive and/or there is any doubt whatsoever as to whether the call on the ice was correct, the On-Ice Official(s) will be instructed to confirm their original call." 

Therefore the original call stands - good goal Boston Bruins.
