Kuraly's 2nd goal of game lifts Bruins past Senators in 2OT

That was the message from the Ottawa Senators as they were forced to make a trip they never really wanted to take in the first place back to Boston on Saturday to face the Bruins on Sunday afternoon at the TD Garden with the club suddenly clinging to a 3-2 series lead in Round 1 of the National Hockey League playoffs. "It bounced on my stick tonight and I'm happy that it did", said Kuraly.

The Senators advance to play the New York Rangers in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs after finishing off the Bruins in the best-of-seven series. The Senators will have another chance to clinch the series in Boston on Sunday. Another Karlsson-Brassard moment to go along with the memorable hate-love exchanges they had in Game 2: After MacArthur scored, Karlsson skated to Brassard and the two had a long hug ... The Bruins challenged the call to no avail.

"We battled hard", Rask said. Some good play by Alexandre Burrows and Zack Smith in particular kept Ottawa in it, and the teams went to overtime after a period in which Ottawa was thoroughly outplayed.

Mark Stone scored his first goal in 20 games for the Senators and Jean-Gabriel Pageau also found the back of the net in regulation.

The Senators took Game 3 in overtime and won 1-0 in Game 4, with Bobby Ryan scoring the victor in both games.

Craig Anderson only seemed to get better as the series went on, and he'd had an excellent year. "It was impressive to see that and it was next man up every time and I think it was great experience for the young guys". That's the way it was all year against them and you've got to give these guys credit.

The Bruins did not get off a shot in the extra period.

What's more, the last time Green Bay selected a player from Wisconsin in Round 1 happened in 1948 with back Earl "Jug" Girard. I know what it takes to get ready to go. "I like the guys that we have". "I'm just excited to help execute what he wants".

The accuser says she declined and offered to watch the other couple have sex in the hotel room bathroom instead. The woman said Conley wouldn't take his sunglasses off and had an Ohio State tattoo on his left forearm.

"We were fortunate our kill came through big time and we were able to regroup from that", said Cassidy, whose team lost center David Krejci when he was injured by a Chris Wideman hit in the first period.

There were portions of Game 5 where the Bruins looked more determined and Ottawa didnt have a response.

It wasn't a particularly stellar night for Pastrnak with just a couple of shots on net and three giveaways to go along with the overtime penalty, and it surely was a step down from a very strong Game 5 performance in Ottawa. The "longshot" Senators are 12 wins from hoisting that one, and what an exclamation mark a Stanley Cup would be on MacArthur's great and gutsy story. Fortunately, Tuukka Rask continued his stellar play, and didn't allow the Senators to even the score. Ottawa is a pretty heavy underdog in this spot but as we saw from the Blues on Saturday there is certainly a place on taking a road team in a clinching situation and the Sens are no different here.

The Bruins came back from a 2-0 deficit to take Game 5 in OT. Karlsson wanted to play the final few games of the season for a chance to catch San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns, who led all defensemen with 76 points in 82 games. Ryan, who was all over the ice for the Sens in the series, popped one past Rask and five minutes later Kyle Turris also beat the B's netminder.

David Pastrnak is usually the brightest light with the Boston Bruins.

The Senators survived the first overtime and the second would prove to be a challenge of endurance.
