OTTAWA (CP) - Dany Heatley had a goal and an assist Tuesday night to help lift the Ottawa Senators past the Boston Bruins 5-2 at Scotiabank Place.

The win was the Senators' first in four tries against the Bruins this season, and they were outscored 13-6 in the first three, including a humiliating 7-2 setback on Dec. 19, also at Scotiabank Place.

Mike Comrie, Daniel Alfredsson, Patrick Eaves and Peter Schaefer, into an empty net, also scored for the Senators, who trailed 2-0 after two periods before rallying to their seventh victory in their past nine games.

Alfredsson scored the winner at 12:25 of the third period as he jumped on a loose puck in the slot, spun and fired beating netminder Tim Thomas. Eaves gave the Senators an insurance goal with just over two minutes to play.

The Senators dominated the third period outshooting the Bruins 19-12 and 36-25 overall.

Comrie scored his first goal as a Senator at 2:22 of the third period, cutting the Bruins lead in half before Heatley tied the game 2-2, just over three minutes later.

Comrie grabbed a loose puck in the Bruins' end, cut in front of the net, and scored on a backhand after waiting just long enough for Thomas to get himself out of position.

Heatley put on a stick handling clinic as he skated in from centre through a maze of skaters and fired a wrist shot past Thomas on the short side.

Minutes later, the Senators caught a break as Bruins forward Marc Savard beat Ottawa goal Ray Emery with a long shot, but hit the post.

After a scoreless second period, the Bruins took their 2-0 lead into the third period. Not only was there no scoring in the second, but there wasn't much in the way of shots on goal either, as the Senators had six and the Bruins only three.

The game didn't start out so well, but it was a great finish.

Good for Ottawa that Comrie scored. Afte he slipped that one under Thomas, the Bruins absolutely tanked. :dunno:

Heatley's goal was a thing of beauty, and Alfredsson came up huge on the Game-Winner. Heatley could be credted for most of the work there though. He's been playing very hard for the Sens without Jason Spezza.

The goal by Eaves was kind of weak, but I quess we can say tht Thomas got fooled and he was going to make he pass.

Emery kept them in it early, and the offence came through.

Volchenkov also stepped up big. He left the game after blocking a shot in front of the net, maybe saving a goal.

He leads the league with 150 blocked shots.
