OTTAWA, Jan. 31 (UPI) --
A goal and an assist each from Marc Savard
and Chuck Kobasew
Thursday led the Boston Bruins to a 4-1 victory over Ottawa.
The Bruins, winners of three in a row and five out of six, also got goals from Phil Kessel and Milan Lucic. Tim Thomas made 30 saves to win his fifth straight start.
Ottawa, which had won its previous two games, got its lone goal from Antoine Vermette. His score came after the Senators had fallen behind 3-0.
Boston needed only 28 seconds to produce its first goal, which came when Kessel grabbed the puck off a draw and fired a shot from the right circle.
The Bruins built a 3-0 lead after one period and beat the Senators for the second time in nine meetings.
