Dennis Seidenberg‘s wrist shot deflected off of Patrice Bergeron and barely crossed to goal line, but it was enough to give the Bruins a 2-1 win in overtime to beat the injury-ridden Ottawa Senators at the TD Garden. The goal, Bergeron’s fourth of the season, underwent video review but was ruled that it crossed the goal line to give the B’s their fifth win in a row. Their record improves to 13-2-2 and Boston is now one point behind Montreal for 1st place in the Eastern Conference with three games in hand.

The Boston Bruins dominated a struggling Florida Panthers team with a 4-1 win during their Sunday matinee to improve to 3-1 on their current five-game road trip and finish off the Florida part of the trip. The win improves the Bruins dominant road record to 7-1-1.
Milan Lucic kicked off the scoring for the B’s, netting an early first period goal with a wrist shot off the face-off that beat Panthers goalie Jacob Markstrom. Nathan Horton set a pick off the face-off to give Lucic the time to bury the puck in the back of the net for his fourth goal of the season. Tyler Seguin helped maintain the Boston lead by making a tremendous defensive play and scooping the puck off the Bruins goal line with a curl and drag move. Moments later Zdeno Chara scored a spectacular goal (video here) after making a spin move and beating Markstrom with the backhand (all without cracking a smile) for his third goal of the year. Tomas Kopecky put Florida on the board by knocking in a loose puck in a scrum in front of the net for his fifth of the year. Continue reading Bruins Soak Up The Sun In Florida, Beat Panthers 4-1 »
