Torey Krug and Loui Eriksson each had two assists for the Bruins.

Tuukka Rask made 29 saves, including 12 in the third period as the Bruins held off the Senators.

John Tavares was one of six New York Islanders players to score in a 6-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs for a split in the home-and-away series, while New Jersey's David Schlemko scored the tiebreaking goal with 3:05 left in the third period and gibe the Devils a 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.
