BOSTON, April 9 (UPI) -- Tim Thomas turned aside 31 shots Saturday and the playoff-bound Boston Bruins wrapped up their home schedule with a 3-1 decision over Ottawa.

The Northeast Division-champion Bruins will play their final game Sunday in New Jersey. They ended the year with a 22-13-6 record within the division.

The Senators got their only goal from Bobby Butler, and Curtis McElhinney made 26 saves in the setback.
