BOSTON (AP) - Zdeno Chara scored the winning goal in his first game against his former team, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night.

Chara, one of the NHL's top free agents last summer, scored a power-play goal on a blistering slap shot from the right point with 4:25 left to give the struggling Bruins just their second win in six games.

The Bruins also hired away former Ottawa assistant general manager Peter Chiarelli in May, naming him the team's GM after firing Mike O'Connell. Chiarelli later fired coach Mike Sullivan and replaced him with Dave Lewis.

Tim Thomas stopped 35 shots and P.J. Axelsson also scored for Boston.

Dany Heatley scored a second-period power-play goal for the Senators, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. Martin Gerber had 30 saves for the Senators.

After a scoreless first period, the Senators took advantage of a two-man advantage to grab the lead on Heatley's goal at 17:21 in the second. Heatley, positioned at the right side of the crease, banged in a cross-ice pass from Jason Spezza.

The Bruins tied it with 12:55 to play in the third when Axelsson stole the puck from defenceman Tom Preissing, broke in alone and fired a wrist shot into the top left corner.

Thought luck for the Sens. We had the lead till 12:55 of the third. Even worse the Leafs got 2 points and the Habs got 1. The Sens will have to try to rebound on Tuesday when they face the Habs.:(
