All done at the Garden. Kyle Turris closes out with empty-netter with 36.5 seconds remaining. Bruins finish in fourth place in Eastern Conference. Will play Toronto in first round.

16:26 3d period, Senators 3-2: Ottawa pulls ahead. Jean-Gabriel Pageau scores on rebound of Marc Methot shot. Bruins on track for meeting with Leafs.

14:02 3d period, 2-2: Jakob Silfverberg had an open net. But couldn’t corral puck and fire promptly. Bruins catch a break. Breathless stuff.

7:21 3d period, 2-2: Money save by Tuukka Rask. Kicks out Erik Condra on partial break.

1:39 3d period, 2-2: Delay. Linesman Derek Amell off for equipment repair.


0:14 3d period, 2-2: All tied up. Dennis Seidenberg with off-wing slapper. Gets through Robin Lehner somehow. Lehner not inspiring confidence.

20:00 2d period, Senators 2-1: Huge power-play goal by Rich Peverley. Momentum going into third. Robin Lehner looking human.

19:56 2d period, Senators 2-1: Life for Bruins. Wade Redden takes huge wallop on boards from Marc Methot before dishing to Rich Peverley. Sharp-angle shot beats Robin Lehner. Has to stop that.

18:00 2d period, Senators 2-0: Holding on Cory Conacher. Critical PP coming up for Bruins.

16:30 2d period, Senators 2-0: Money save by Robin Lehner on Milan Lucic. Odd-man rush for Lucic and Kaspars Daugavins.

7:36 2d period, Senators 1-0: Bruins applying hardest push so far. Getting some good looks on goal. Have to keep pressing.

20:00 1st period, Senators 1-0: Brad Marchand with hit on Erik Karlsson after whistle. That’s been bubbling all game. Ottawa will start second on power play after Marchand tagged for slashing. Very selfish penalty.

18:36 1st period, Senators 1-0: Varsity bout. Milan Lucic vs. Chris Neil. Looked like Neil wanted payback for Lucic hit on Turris. Wicked swings and connections by both bruisers.

0:00 1st period, 0-0: Dougie Hamilton, Aaron Johnson, and Jay Pandolfo are the healthy scratches.
