It was another fight-filled preseason game on Monday night at the TD Garden but the Bruins were able to get the last laugh as Chris Kelly scored the game-winner with 1:21 remaining in overtime giving the B's a 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals. Kelly won't get one any easier than that as the puck shot out to him in the slot after a Matt Bartkowski shot from the left point was re-directed. Nobody saw the puck taking that kind of bounce and Kelly put it into the open net for the win. Zdeno Chara put the Bruins up 2-1 after he scored his second goal of the game 22 seconds into the third period and 11 seconds into a 5-on-3 power play. Simultaneous fights between Nick Johnson and Michal Cajkovski and Adam McQuaid and Dane Byers led to the 5-on-3 man advantage for Boston. And Chara took advantage right away blasting one top-right from the top of the right circle. The Capitals tied it up at 2-2 6:38 into the third as Michael Latta skated through the slot and batted down a high shot that ended up just barely getting past Tuukka Rask and over the goal line. In the second period too many men on the ice penalties hurt both teams. The Capitals took a 1-0 lead just 15 seconds into a power play and with 8:44 left in the period. Connor Carrick took a slap shot from the middle of the point that ended up beating a screened Rask and finding the top-left corner of the net. It was just Washington's third shot on goal of the game. Then with 1:38 left in the second Chara tied the game at 1-1 when he re-directed a Dennis Seidenberg shot from the middle point just 29 seconds into a power play. The second period ended with the B's out-shooting the Capitals 23-6.
