OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Dion Phaneuf scored at 1:59 of overtime and the Ottawa Senators rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Boston Bruins on Saturday.
The Senators rallied from a 3-1 deficit with a two-goal third period to force overtime. The Eastern Conference series is tied 1-1 and Game 3 is Monday night in Boston.
Clarke MacArthur, Chris Wideman and Derick Brassard also scored for the Senators and Craig Anderson made 26 saves.
Drew Stafford, Tim Schaller and Patrice Bergeron scored for the Bruins. Tuukka Rask stopped 25 shots.
The Senators started the overtime with the man advantage as the Bruins took a delay of game penalty with 12.5 seconds remaining in regulation.
Trailing 3-1 to start the third, the Senators scored twice in a span of 2:20 to tie the game.
Wideman, with his first playoff goal, made it 3-2 with a goal from the point and Brassard, off a great pass from Erik Karlsson, tied the game at 7:48 off a one-timer.
A goalie gaffe and bad penalties left the Senators trailing 3-1 after 40 minutes.
With the Bruins pushing, Viktor Stalberg blocked a shot, but the rebound went right to Stafford, who hammered it past Anderson to open the scoring at 9:47 of the second period.
The Senators challenged the goal believing the play was offside, but a lengthy review upheld the goal.
The Senators managed to get the crowd back into the game as MacArthur tied it on the power play with his first goal since April 19, 2015.
Boston retook the lead when Anderson misplayed the puck with Dominic Moore bearing down, allowing Schaller to score short-handed over a sprawled Anderson at 12:39.
The Bruins took a 3-1 lead late in the period with a power-play goal as Bergeron tipped David Pastrnak shot’s at 16:01.
Boston lost yet another defenseman as Adam McQuaid left midway through the first period. The Senators were also down to five as Mark Borowiecki left the game after going hard into the boards midway through the period.
Ottawa had Marc Methot back in the lineup for the first time since suffering a laceration to his pinky finger on March 23.
The Bruins were already down to their ninth defenseman on the depth chart as Joe Morrow was in for an injured Colin Miller.
NOTES: After playing Game 1, C Tommy Wingels was out for Game 2 along with veterans C Chris Kelly and RW Chris Neil as well as D Fredrik Claesson. The Bruins remain without C David Krejci. Miller joined the list of injured defensemen with Torey Krug and Brandon Carlo.
