Boston Bruins @ Ottawa Senators game recap video, on December 27, 2015.
After last night's debacle vs the Sabres, the Bruins showed a better effort against the Ottawa Senators today despite losing 3-1. Bruins Torey Krug missed the game with an undisclosed injury and Bruins David Krejci left in the second period, so hopefully they both don't miss much more time, the Bruins really need their offense.
