The Ottawa Senators emerged from the battle of the two best teams in the Eastern Conference with a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins, thanks in large part to Jason Spezza’s two goals. The win gives the Senators six in a row. The recent winning streak comes on the heels of a seven game skid, according to the AP.
A rare goal from Ottawa defenseman Luke Richardson gave the Senators the lead midway through the second period. Spezza’s second goal extended the lead to 3-1, which was only pared down with a minute left in the game. Chuck Kobasew scored his team-best 13th goal in the first period for Boston. Ottawa net minder Martin Gerber recorded 26 saves.
