OTTAWA - Mark Stone scored twice and Craig Anderson stopped 38 shots as the Ottawa Senators defeated the Boston Bruins 3-1 Sunday.

Mika Zibanejad had the other goal for the Senators (18-12-6), who snapped a two-game losing streak.

David Krejci was the lone Bruin to beat Anderson as Boston (19-12-4) dropped its third straight. Tuukka Rask made 19 saves.

Krejci suffered an undisclosed injury and did not play the third period.

The two teams meet again Tuesday in Boston.

The Bruins looked to tie the game in the third, but were unable to beat Anderson. Stone sealed the victory with an empty-net goal with 54 seconds remaining.

The Senators led 2-1 after 40 minutes despite being outshot 31-17.

Boston tied the game at the seven-minute mark of the second after video review showed Krejci's shot from in close had fully crossed the line.

Ottawa regained the lead late in the period as Zibanejad jumped on a Bobby Ryan rebound to make it 2-1.

The Bruins had the early jump in the opening period. At one point Boston was outshooting the Senators 16-6, but it was Ottawa who opened the scoring.

The Senators took advantage of a power play as Stone, behind the net, banked a shot in off Dennis Seidenberg's skate to give Ottawa a 1-0 lead in the dying seconds of the period.

Notes: Ottawa C Curtis Lazar missed the game due to an undisclosed injury and D Cody Ceci is week-to-week with upper body injury. Boston D Torey Krug did not make the trip to Ottawa after he suffered an undisclosed injury in Saturday's 6-3 loss to Buffalo. D Colin Miller and RW Tyler Randell were healthy scratches.
