OTTAWA — Approximately halfway through Sunday’s third period, Joe Morrow carried the puck into the offensive zone. The defenseman thought he had a chance to score. Craig Anderson thought otherwise. What might have been a chance to tie the game ended up being one of Anderson’s 38 saves.

The Bruins ended Ottawa’s season with a 5-2 win over the visiting Senators on Saturday at TD Garden. Ottawa closed to within one goal in the third period. But Noel Acciari and David Backes responded with two straight goals.

The Bruins shook off the decaf in the second period. The rally started five seconds after Mark Borowiecki was called for interference on Jake DeBrusk. On the next drop, Patrice Bergeron won the faceoff and pulled the puck back to Torey Krug. The defenseman raced down the right-side wall and gave the puck back to Bergeron. Tom Pyatt leaned toward Bergeron to defend the center’s shot. That gave Bergeron enough room to slip a pass to David Pastrnak at the left circle. The right wing hammered a one-timer home at 8:08.

Fifty-one seconds later, the Bruins pulled ahead. Tommy Wingels forced Pyatt to cough up the puck with a hard forecheck. After regaining the puck, Wingels fired a wrister that caromed off the right post. The puck then tumbled across the goal line before Daniel Taylor could sweep it aside.

The Bruins scored their third goal after Brian Gionta cleared the puck out of the defensive zone. Because Max McCormick couldn’t hold the point, Danton Heinen and Ryan Donato scurried off for a two-on-one rush. Heinen pushed the puck down the right wing and shot the puck past Taylor at 17:01.

Khudobin made the stop of the night at 13:44 of the second. Colin White and Ryan Dzingel broke away for an odd-man rush against Kevan Miller. Dzingel reeled in White’s pass for a backdoor strike. But Khudobin read the play, tracked Dzingel, and stopped the puck with his right shoulder.

White passed the puck to Matt Duchene, who slipped it over to Dzingel. Before Krug could tighten his gap, Dzingel snapped the puck through the defenseman and past Khudobin to give the Senators a 1-0 lead.

Bruins know they have to stop Leafs from stretching their wings .
The Boston Bruins vowed Tuesday to focus harder on the Leafs’ strategic weapon — the odd-man rush sprung from the stretch pass. The Leafs, the Bruins said, are the one team in the NHL that features the stretch pass regularly, and excels at it despite the risks involved.“They play that style where they want to counter you with their speed,” Bruins defenceman Charlie McAvoy said Tuesday. “You have to keep five (of your) guys in front of them all the time. They’ll go for those chances … they cheat the game a little, but that’s their style, they’ll do it to you all the time.
