Feb. 28, 2013 at 10:30 PM

BOSTON, Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Patrice Bergeron scored with 1:22 left in overtime Thursday to give Boston its fifth straight victory, a 2-1 decision over Ottawa.

Dennis Seidenberg got off a blast from the point that was tipped by Bergeron. The deflected puck made it through the pads of goaltender Robin Lehner and trickled across the goal line.

Ottawa had won five in a row and began the night tied with Boston for second place in the Northeast Division with 26 points. The Bruins, however, have played four fewer games than has Ottawa.

Both of the regulation goals came in the second period with Boston taking the lead on a wrist shot by Nathan Horton early in the stanza. Jim O'Brien tied it on the power play with 5:22 remaining.

Tuukka Rask made 30 saves for the Bruins, who have won eight of their last 10. Lehner gave up the winning goal on the 46th shot he faced.
