Bruins End Skid, Beat Senators 5-3

Aaron Ward scored his first career shorthanded goal coming out of the penalty box during the Bruins’ slump-busting win over the Senators.

“I’ve never scored on a breakaway. I didn’t know what to do,” the defenseman said. “It’s like an offensive lineman scoring in football. Hopefully they won’t have video of it. I think my eyes were closed.”

Ward helped the Bruins get out to a three-goal lead before the team held on to beat the Ottawa Senators 5-3. It was just their fifth win in the last 16 games.

The Bruins jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first period, thanks to goals from Ward, P.J. Axelsson, and Chuck Kobasew. After a Sentors goal from Jason Spezza, the Bruins grabbed a 4-1 lead thanks to Phil Kessel.

After two Ottowa goals made the game 4-3, the Bruins put it away with an empty-netter from Kessel late in the third.

Former Bruins goalie Alex Auld finished with 17 saves, while Tim Thomas finished with 25 saves for the victory.

The Bruins next play the Islanders Saturday afternoon.
