Boston makes it 10 straight over Senators with shootout win at Ottawa

OTTAWA - The Boston Bruins continued their dominance in Canada's capital.



David Krejci's shootout goal gave the Bruins a 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Monday night at Scotiabank Place.

The Senators have now lost 10 straight to the Bruins on home ice. The last time Ottawa beat Boston at Scotiabank Place was April 7, 2009.

Patrice Bergeron also beat Senators goalie Robin Lehner in the four-round shootout. Kyle Turris scored on Tuukka Rask for the only Senators shootout goal.

The Bruins outshot the Senators 32-29 through three periods. Neither goalie had to be spectacular in the extra session, each making three saves.

The Bruins fell behind 2-0 but began to claw back in the last minute of the first period when enforcer Shawn Thornton took what looked to be a harmless wrist shot at the Ottawa net from the right wing boards. The puck managed to slip through Lehner for Thornton's second goal of the season.

Boston tied the game near the midway mark of the second when Krejci sent Daniel Paille in for a clear breakaway. Paille's snap shot beat Lehner on the stick side.

In the first minute of his first game back after missing 18 with what was diagnosed as migraines, Guillaume Latendresse broke in alone on Rask and deked the goalie to the ice before flipping the puck into the net. It was Latendresse's first goal since Dec. 11, 2011, when he was with the Minnesota Wild.

Less than seven minutes later, Turris also broke out of a lengthy slump, cutting through the slot and beating Rask with a wrist shot high to the glove side for his first goal in 22 games. It was his fifth goal of the season.

NOTES: The Bruins lost center Chris Kelly because a left knee injury that resulted when he collided with Chris Neil in the first minute of the second period. Entering the night, the Bruins had lost just seven man-games to injury ... Senators left winger Milan Michalek missed the game with what's believed to be a knee problem that kept him out of lineup for 10 games, from Feb. 13-March 3 ... Entering the game, the Senators had the best home record (9-1-2) in the East, while the Bruins had the best road record (8-1-2) ... Since winning the Stanley Cup in 2011, the Bruins are 26-0 when Kelly scores a goal. "I don't know why," said the third-line center, who has two goals on the season. "They just need me to score more." ... The Senators have taken a minor penalty for "instigating with a visor" in two consecutive games.
