Bergeron scores game-winner as surging Bruins beat Senators 2-1 in OT

BOSTON - Patrice Bergeron scored the winning goal with 1:21 left in overtime after a replay review, lifting the surging Boston Bruins to a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.

Nathan Horton scored the other goal for Boston, which won its fourth straight and was coming off a 4-1 road trip. The Bruins are 13-2-2 this season.

Tuukka Rask made 30 saves for the Bruins, including a pair of stellar stops in OT.

Jim O'Brien scored for the Senators, who had a five-game winning streak snapped.

Bergeron's wrist shot from the left circle, broke off Ottawa goalie Robin Lehner and trickled across the goal line. The crowd roared, the light went on and horn sounded, but the referee behind the net waved it off.

After a review, replays clearly showed the puck slid across when Lehner reached back and knocked it into the net before pulling it back out.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
