One goal each period was enough for the Ottawa Senators to beat the Boston Bruins by a 3-1 score as Boston continues to search for a scoring touch. They did out shoot the Senators 39-21 but could not get the puck past Craig Anderson who finished with 30 saves.

David Krejci's 11th goal of the season tied the game in the second period. However Mika Zibanejad was able to score the game winner with just 1:40 to play in the period.
