The Senators didn’t make it easy, but the Bruins found a way to win (again) in Ottawa.
Tuukka Rask made 30 saves, the Bruins’ fourth line scored twice and David Krejci finished things off in a shootout as the B’s ran their record in Ottawa to 10-0-0 in the team’s last 10 games. That’s an impressive run against any team, but to do it against a divisional rival — one currently in playoff position, no less — is an incredible feat that the Bruins can feel proud about.
They shouldn’t dwell on it for too long, though. The B’s have another game Tuesday, and it won’t be long until they see the Senators once again, either. For now, NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is awarding Rask our “Shootout Spinner” player of the game. Who’s yours?

The shortened NHL season, with its quick start and jam-packed schedule, was supposed to mean a plethora of injuries across the league. While some teams like the Senators have fallen in line with that, the Bruins have been one of the luckier clubs when it comes to medical issues this season.
The B’s entered Monday’s game in Ottawa having missed just seven man games as team this...
News prior to puck drop: Chris Kelly, who sustained an undisclosed injury last night in Ottawa will not be playing tonight. The third line should look like this: Jordan Caron on the right , Rich Peverely at center and Jay Pandolfo on the left.
Coach on Chris Kelly: "No news. He's here with us...there's some swelling obviously so it's hard to say where he'...
Halfway through the season, the Bruins have plenty of reasons to feel like awarding some attaboys.
After all, they’re right in the hunt for the Northeast Division crown, have been able to avoid injuries to many of their key guys and have erased any worries about missing Tim Thomas thanks to the strong play of Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin.
With that in mind, NESN Nation’s Dan...

The Boston Bruins have a strong grip on the second spot in the North East division, leading Ottawa by 7 points and trailing Montreal by only 1. Other than a few missteps by the defense, there has not been much to critique. Tyler Seguin seems to have found his game having scored 4 times in the past 4 games. Tuukka Rask has answered any questions that may have remained about his ability...
Shootouts are an NHL gimmick so if you're pissed at what Kaspar Daugavins did last night than, well, we don't know what to tell you. Here's his crazy move.
It's a high risk, high reward maneuver. He nails it and Ottawa is singing songs of his grandeur. He fails and he looks like a giant chump who wasted a chance to win a game for his team. Thank god...
David Krejci scored the shootout winner and had an assist in regulation as the Boston Bruins defeated the 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...
As soon as the game was over the excuses poured in. Yes, we're sure the Bruins were tired after playing 65+ minutes the previous night. Yes, we're sure the Penguins relentless attack didn't help the Bruins energy reserves. But seriously. They scored their two goals and then just sat back and watched. You CAN'T do that against the Penguins. You just can'...
The Penguins host the Boston Bruins tomorrow night so we asked the fantastic Bruins blog Days of Y’Orr a few questions about the B’s. This is Getting Old: The Bruins are off to a great start. Stanley Cup or bust? Days of Y’Orr: I would say Stanley Cup Finals or bust. If they lose to…
Having rebounded from a brief lull, the Boston Bruins will try to add to their momentum by continuing their recent dominance over the injury-plagued Ottawa Senators.
The Bruins seek a 10th straight victory in Ottawa and an 11th in 12 overall meetings Monday night while trying to end the Senators' five-game home win streak.
Boston dropped back-to-back games for only the second...
