Kessel snipes in the the third period give B’s 5-3 win

15:29: Beautiful goal by Phil Kessel [1] that he sniped into the top right corner to beat Auld. The play was started with a brilliant entry pass along the wall from Marc Savard [2] that freed Kessel to turn on his after-burners and get behind the defense. Kessel motored down the right-hand side, lifted his off-foot and stroked a top shelf shot that Auld didn’t have a chance at.

13:08: Great ping-ping passing between Shannon, Dany Heatley [3] and Christoph Schubert ends with Schubert camped out in front of the Boston net and on open net. Schubert taps it in to make it a two-goal game.

10:55: A faceoff in the Boston D-zone turns into a blink-of-the-eye strike by Jason Spezza from the right faceoff circle that beats Thomas up high. It’s Spezza’s second goal of the game.

4:15: A couple of near-misses on connections from Krejci to Lucic in front of the net.

00:55.6: Empty-netter for Phil Kessel, and this game is O-V-A-H.

The Bruins beat the Senators by a 4-3 score.
