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

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
