After review, the game-winning goal stood, and the Bruins won their fifth-straight game, 2-1, in overtime on Thursday night against the Ottawa Senators. Dennis Seidenberg's shot from the point with 1:21 left in OT was re-directed by Patrice Bergeron, and just crossed the goal line. But it took an official review to overrule the initial call, which was no goal. But the replay was clear, and the Bruins took two points in a game that saw them give the Senators 1:29 seconds of 4-on-3 power play time on overtime. The B's killed it, and finished the Senators off moments later. It went to overtime because of Ottawa's goal that tied the game up at 1-1 with 5:22 left in the second period and with five seconds left on a power play after the Bruins were penalized for having too many men on the ice. Jim O'Brien knocked home a loose puck out front while several Bruins players failed at clearing it out. Kaspars Daugavins sent it out front after he was initially stopped by Tuukka Rask on a breakaway. The goal snapped the Bruins penalty-kill streak of 27. Nathan Horton gave the B's a 1-0 lead six minutes into the second period after he nearly whiffed on a shot from the slot. Dougie Hamilton fed a pass back to Horton from the right circle and a stick-lift attempt prevented Horton from putting everything he could into the shot. The speed fooled Robin Lehner, and somehow got past him along the ice. Credit Milan Lucic for getting the play started by making a nice play at the blue line to keep the puck in the zone and keep the play alive.
