David Krejci's shoot-out goal gave the Boston Bruins a 3-2 NHL win over the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place.

The Senators have now lost 10 straight to the Bruins on home ice. The last time Ottawa beat Boston at Scotiabank Place was on April 7, 2009.

Patrice Bergeron also beat Senators goalie Robin Lehner in the four-round shoot-out. Kyle Turris scored on Tuukka Rask for the only Senators shoot-out goal.

The Bruins outshot the Senators 32-29 through three periods. Neither goalie had to be spectacular in the extra session, each making three saves.

The Bruins fell behind 2-0 but began to claw back in the last minute of the first period when enforcer Shawn Thornton took what looked to be a harmless wrist shot at the Ottawa net from the right wing boards.

Meanwhile, the Kings captain Dustin Brown scored two goals to lead the Los Angeles past Calgary 3-1 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. Jonathan Quick made 23 saves.

Mikael Backlund ruined Quick's shut-out bid with 5:22 to play for last-place Calgary, who have lost six straight games on the road.
