BOSTON (AP) — Mike Hoffman scored to send the game into overtime, and Bobby Ryan ended it 46 seconds into the extra period on Saturday as the Ottawa Senators beat the Boston Bruins 3-2.
Craig Anderson made 26 saves for Ottawa, which has won two in a row. Kyle Turris also scored for the Senators.
Brad Marchand and Torey Krug scored for Boston, and David Krejci assisted on both goals. Tuukka Rask stopped 23 shots for the Bruins.
Marchand gave Boston a 2-1 lead midway through the third period, but Gryba’s slap shot deflected off Hoffman’s skate and past Rask to tie it. Ryan, who had a hat trick in Monday’s win over Buffalo, scored the game-winner when he knocked in the rebound of Erik Karlsson’s shot.
It was the second straight overtime game for the Bruins. On Wednesday, they scored two late second-period goals to tie Toronto before falling in a shootout.
This time, Boston blew the lead and the game despite killing a pair of 5-on-3 advantages early and getting a power play of its own in the final three minutes.
The game was scoreless for 32 minutes until Clarke MacArthur occupied a couple of Bruins behind the Boston net and left the puck free for Turris. He swooped in, slid toward the goal and wristed it into the tight spot over Rask’s right shoulder to make it 1-0.
Boston tied it four minutes later when Zdeno Chara screened Anderson and Krug’s slap shot from the point found the net. Marchand gave Boston a 2-1 lead midway through the third when he skated around and into the slot before putting a wrist shot past Anderson.
Boston then killed off a second two-man disadvantage, but Hoffman tied it when his slap shot bounced off a leg in front of Rask and went into the net. The Senators killed off a power play when Milan Michalek tripped Adam McQuaid with 2:47 left.
Boston had one rush in overtime, but the Senators brought the puck down and scored.
NOTES: Both teams are on the front end of a back-to-back. The Bruins play at Carolina on Sunday, and the Senators return home to play the Tampa Bay Lightning. … The Senators recalled D Chris Wideman from Binghamton of the AHL. … Bruins D Dougie Hamilton had six shots, matching a career high.
