BOSTON, Nov. 11 (UPI) -- A goal by Patrice Bergeron at 13:42 of the third period Saturday night helped the Boston Bruins beat Ottawa, 4-3.
A three-goal second period put Boston in front, 3-2, at the second intermission.
Glen Murray scored in both the first and second periods, Petr Tenkrat scored once, P.J. Axelsson had two assists, and goalie Tim Thomas gave up three goals on 28 shots for the Bruins -- who had given up at least five goals in each of their last four games, leading to the demotion of goalie Hannu Toivonen.
He was sent to Providence of the American Hockey League Tuesday.
Chris Neil scored twice, Jason Spezza scored the other goal, Peter Schaefer had two assists, and Martin Gerber was beaten four times on 29 shots for the Senators -- who have won two straight following a five-game losing streak.
On the power play, the Senators went 1-for-7, and the Bruins were 1-for-6.
