Bergeron's two goals pace Bruins past Senators

Patrice Bergeron recorded two goals and an assist as visiting Boston opened up a five-point advantage in the Northeast Division over Ottawa.

David Krejci netted the game-winner on a power play in the third period and Brad Marchand recorded his career-high 22nd goal for Boston, which completed its longest road trip of the season with a 3-2-1 mark.

The Bruins gave up the first tally but wasted little time battling back, with Bergeron knotting it at 1-1 early in the first period. Boston appeared to be running away late into the third period as Krejci's 13th goal pushed it to 4-1.

The Senators made things interesting late with two similar goals by captain Daniel Alfredsson. A one-timer from the left boards cut it to 4-2 with 3:45 left and the second tally came from almost the exact same spot 1:37 later.

Boston goaltender Tim Thomas slammed his stick against the post in frustration.

Bergeron put it out of reach with an empty-net goal to close it out.

The highlight for the Bruins came in the second period, when rookie Carter Camper banged in a rebound for his first NHL goal, making it 3-1.
