NHL: Boston 5, Ottawa 3
Phil Kessel scored twice in the third period Thursday night when the Boston Bruins beat the Ottawa Senators 5-3 to break a two-game skid.
Kessel's second goal of the night, his 29th of the season, was an empty net with under a minute left.
Also, they improved to 4-0 this season against the Senators, and have won six straight and eight of the last nine meetings between the teams overall.
Ottawa got two goals from Jason Spezza and one from Christoph Schubert.
Alex Auld was beaten four times on 21 shots for the Senators, who had won four in a row.
