Krejci lifts Bruins to shootout win over Senators
David Krejci scored the shootout winner and had an assist in regulation as the Boston Bruins defeated the host Ottawa Senators, 3-2, on Monday night.
Tuuka Rask made 30 saves in regulation and stopped three of four Senators in the shootout, including a bizarre attempt from Kaspars Daugavins.
The Ottawa forward carried the puck by pressing down with the tip of his stick before attempting a failed 360 move in front of Rask.
Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille scored for Boston, which rallied from a 2-0 deficit to win its 10th straight in Ottawa.
Guillaume Latendresse - in his first game back from injury since Jan. 30 - and Kyle Turris scored in regulation for the Senators.
Robin Lehner made 33 saves through three periods and overtime.
Paille tied the game 2-2 at 8:53 of the second period, beating Lehner on the stick side after Krejci made a 50-foot pass up the middle to send Paille in all alone.
It was Krejci's 400th NHL game.
