OTTAWA, Ontario - David Krejci scored the shootout winner and had an assist in regulation as the Boston Bruins defeated the Ottawa Senators 3-2 on Monday night.

Tuuka Rask made 30 saves in regulation and stopped three of four Senators in the shootout, including a bizarre attempt from Kaspars Daugavins. The Ottawa forward carried the puck by pressing down with the tip of his stick before attempting a failed 360 move in front of Rask.

Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille scored for Boston, which rallied from a 2-0 deficit to win its 10th straight in Ottawa.

Guillaume Latendresse - in his first game back from injury since Jan. 30 - and Kyle Turris scored in regulation for the Senators. Robin Lehner made 33 saves through three periods and overtime.

Paille tied the game 2-2 at 8:53 of the second period, beating Lehner on the stick side after Krejci made a 50-foot pass up the middle to send Paille in all alone.

The Senators got off to a good start as they built a 2-0 lead before the midway point of the first period, with both scorers snapping goalless droughts.

After missing the last 18 games suffering from the effects of whiplash, Latendresse scored his first of the year just 55 seconds into the game after being sprung on a breakaway by defenseman Sergei Gonchar.

• Kings 3, Flames 1: In Los Angeles, captain Dustin Brown scored two goals, Jonathan Quick made 23 saves and the surging Los Angeles Kings beat Calgary for their second win over the Flames in three days.

Brown and Jarret Stoll scored first-period goals before Brown added an empty-netter for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who moved up to third place in the Western Conference with their 11th win in 14 games.

Despite a rough third period dominated by Calgary, the champs finished their five-game homestand with four victories. With steadily improving play after a rough start to the season, Los Angeles trails only Chicago and Anaheim in the West race.
