Bruins Beat Senators in Shootout

P.J. Axelsson scored on Boston’s fifth shootout attempt after Tim Thomas stopped all five Ottawa shooters in the NHL-leading Bruins’ 4-3 victory over the Senators on Thursday night. Thomas made a sensational glove stop on Dany Heatley after turning aside Jason Spezza, Daniel Alfredsson, Brendan Bell and Antoine Vermette.

Chuck Kobasew tied the score at 3 for the Bruins in the third period with 4:02 after the team blew a two-goal lead. In some respects, the Bruins had no business earning one point, nevermind the two they squeaked out Thursday night.

“They were better than us tonight,” Axelsson said. “We were lucky to get away with two points.”

Thomas finished with 19 saves against only 22 shots face through the game, but he brought his A-game to the shootout frame. He has been a rock all season for the B’s and is a huge reason for their success.

The Bruins next play the Flyers Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m.
