Pageau's goal with 3:34 left gives Senators 4-2 win over Bruins and No. 7 seed in playoffs

BOSTON - Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored the tiebreaking goal with 3:34 to play and the Ottawa Senators beat Boston 4-2 on Sunday night in the NHL's rescheduled regular-season finale.

The victory gave the Senators the seventh seed for the Eastern Conference playoffs and a matchup with Montreal and dropped the New York Islanders into eighth and a first-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Bruins, who could have won the Northeast Division and earned a No. 2 seed with a win, finish fourth; they will play Toronto in the first round.

The game was originally scheduled for April 15, the day of the Boston Marathon bombings. It was the only NHL game on Sunday, with the rest of the league wrapping up the regular season by Saturday.

Kyle Turris scored an empty-netter with 37 seconds left.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
