It’s bound to happen sooner or later, but it won’t be this time.

David Krejci roofed a shot in the extra session shootout to give the Bruins a 3-2 shootout win over the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place, and hand Boston their 10th straight win on the road in Ottawa.

Tuukka Rask made a brilliant doorstep save on Daniel Alfredsson in the final seconds of overtime to push it to the shootout, and had 30 saves in all for the evening.

The Bruins fell down early by a 2-0 score as the Senators struck for a goal just 55 seconds into the first period, and then Kyle Turris struck again on a Nathan Horton turnover nearly seven minutes later. Meanwhile Boston hadn’t registered a single shot on net in that time period over the first eight minutes of the game, and looked like they’d hit the snooze button in their Ottawa hotel too many times.

But the Bruins finally snapped awake and Boston’s fourth line struck for a goal at the end of the first period that finally swung some momentum the Black and Gold’s way. Shawn Thornton fired one shot from the right face-off circle that handcuffed Robin Lehner, but the Sens goalie managed to stop the puck. The puck found Thornton in the same spot and again he fired a knuckle puck at the net that somehow squirted through Lehner’s pads.

That allowed the Bruins to head into intermission down by a single goal, and set things up for the middle 20 minutes.
