The Boston Bruins moved past Buffalo and Montreal in the fight for home-ice advantage in the playoffs, but that will mean little if they continue playing as they did against Ottawa. The Bruins blew an early three-goal lead and had to rally in the third period for a 5-4 win over the visiting Senators, the league's worst team. After scoring on three of their first four shots, the Bruins allowed four straight goals to the league's lowest-scoring team. "We got a little too excited there," Bruins winger Brent Hughes said.

DAVID KREJCI scored the shootout winner and had an assist in regulation as the Boston Bruins defeated the Senators, 3-2, on Monday night in Ottawa. Tuuka Rask made 30 saves in regulation and stopped three of four Senators in the shootout, including a bizarre attempt from Kaspars Daugavins. The Ottawa forward carried the puck by pressing down with the tip of his stick before attempting a failed 360 move in front of Rask. Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille scored for Boston, which rallied from a 2-0 deficit to win its 10th straight in Ottawa.

OTTAWA - The Flyers, with winger Jason Akeson scoring an early goal in his NHL debut and goalie Steve Mason giving another outstanding performance, ended their disappointing 23-22-3 season with a 2-1 win in Ottawa on Saturday night. The question is, was it also the end of the Peter Laviolette era? Probably not. General manager Paul Holmgren would not say definitively, but he again hinted strongly that the coach will return. Holmgren apparently wants to wait until after having season-ending interviews with his players in the next few days before making a decision on Laviolette, who has two years left on his contract.

Andrew Brunette is so hot, he's scoring goals with his hip. With a few lucky bounces and some strong goaltending, the Washington Capitals ended a season-and-a-half of frustration against Ottawa last night, stopping a six-game losing streak against the visiting Senators with a 4-0 victory. "Hopefully, we got rid of the Ottawa jinx," said All-Star goalie Olaf Kolzig, who stopped 24 shots for his 20th victory - six more than he had in his entire five-year NHL career before this season.

PITTSBURGH - The shootings Wednesday in Canada's capital city, Ottawa, rattled Flyers captain Claude Giroux, who lived in the city as a teenager, not far from Parliament. "It's the White House of Canada," he said before the Flyers faced the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night. A suspected gunman was killed after two shooting incidents - one at Canada's National War Memorial, located near the Parliament building, and another round of shooting inside Parliament. A soldier was also killed, and the area around Parliament was locked down.

Guys like Vinny Prospal used to be what the Flyers were about. Yes, Prospal is slow and skinny-legged. He needed every bit of the four years the Flyers kept him in the minors. Even now, headed toward his 24th birthday in February, he can't say he's definitely made it in the NHL. Last night, Prospal had three assists, doubling his season point total, in a 5-4 Ottawa victory over the Flyers at the First Union Center. He scored a goal, as well, but saw that wiped out by video replay.

  Flyers Notes Sergei Bobrovsky is being a good soldier. After being the Flyers' primary goalie and having a very strong rookie season in 2010-11, Bobrovsky is now Ilya Bryzgalov 's understudy. There is a chance Bobrovsky will get his first start of the season Tuesday night in Ottawa. Coach Peter Laviolette , who used Bryzgalov in the first four games (3-0-1), said he wouldn't announce his decision until the morning skate. "I'm ready for every game," Bobrovsky said.

The playoffs seemed an unlikely destination for both the Flyers and Radko Gudas in the middle of February. The team was positioned 11th in the Eastern Conference standings and Gudas was on the doorstep of coach Dave Hakstol's doghouse. Neither the Flyers nor their 25-year-old defenseman from the Czech Republic went away. Now, on the eve of their first-round playoff matchup with the Washington Capitals, it is fair to wonder if the Flyers' late-season push into the playoffs would have been possible without Gudas.

The surging Flyers hope to continue their playoff push when they host Bobby Ryan and the Ottawa Senators in a Saturday matinee. Ryan, who has 22 goals and 55 points for the Senators, grew up in Cherry Hill and followed the Flyers. Now the Senators' 29-year-old right winger is trying to damage their playoff chances. Ottawa (36-33-9) is eliminated from playoff contention. In fact, this is the first time since 1970 that no Canadian teams will play in the postseason. Still, the Flyers (38-25-13)

Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas received a three-game suspension from the NHL on Wednesday for an illegal hit on Ottawa's Mika Zibanejad during the third period Tuesday. A spokesman from the NHL's Department of Player Safety said Gudas made the head "the main point of contact on a hit where the head was avoidable. " Gudas, who was not penalized on the play, delivered an extended forearm to Zibanejad, knocking him out of the game. The 6-foot, 204-pound Gudas will forfeit nearly $16,000 for the three games he misses.

OTTAWA, Ontario - Despite numerous out-of-sync performances in October and November, the Flyers find themselves in the middle of the Eastern Conference playoff race. Credit their growing comfort with new coach Dave Hakstol's defensive-oriented system, their penalty-killing effectiveness, and the rejuvenated play of their second line. Oh, and the Shayne Gostisbehere Factor. The Flyers have won three straight for the first time this season and, entering Wednesday, had inched to within two points of a playoff spot.

OTTAWA, Ontario - They got goals from two defensemen - including the first of Evgeny Medvedev's young NHL career - for the second time this season. They got Wayne Simmonds' third goal in the last two games, Sean Couturier's first multiple-point performance of the season, and superb goaltending from Steve Mason, especially in the third period. Put it all together and the Flyers extended their winning streak to a season-high three games Tuesday, defeating Ottawa, 4-2, at the Canadian Tire Centre.

This is the player the Flyers thought they were getting when they signed free-agent defenseman Evgeny Medvedev in the offseason. After being a healthy scratch in the previous six games, Medvedev returned to the lineup, played more aggressively, and helped the Flyers register consecutive wins over the weekend. Playing in his first NHL season, the 33-year-old Russian was arguably the Flyers' top defenseman in training camp, but he struggled in the first few weeks of the season and found himself benched.

THE LINE between winning and losing in hockey is razor thin. That fact is never more in focus than during the Stanley Cup playoffs. This year, that line was not as fine for the Flyers. It was pretty clear where they stood - 14 points out of the mix, finishing with their second-lowest point total (84) in an 82-game season in franchise history. The lens through which these playoffs are viewed should be different in this town this year. General manager Ron Hextall has a lot of work to do. Here is a comprehensive preview of the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs, which begin tonight, with predictions and an eye on what Hextall could use as a prototype: MONTREAL (A1)

The Flyers can go golfing. The Ottawa Senators can go compete for the Stanley Cup. Ottawa, sparked by rookie Mark Stone's 25th and 26th goals of the season, clinched a playoff berth with a 3-1 win over the Flyers on Saturday afternoon at the church-quiet Wells Fargo Center. "It sucks seeing the other team celebrate," winger Jake Voracek said after only the Flyers' second regulation loss in their last 18 games against teams in a playoff spot. The Flyers finished 33-31-18, their second-worst record in the last 18 years, excluding lockout-shortened seasons.

The Flyers have extra motivation as they end their disappointing season Saturday afternoon against Ottawa at the Wells Fargo Center: They will be trying to prevent the surging Senators from clinching a playoff spot. "They'll be coming in with a lot of intensity, something I think we need from an opponent," said Flyers goalie Steve Mason, who will finish the best season of his seven-year career. "Hopefully, we'll be able to come away and ruin their season. " Ottawa (42-26-13), which owns a stunning 22-4-4 record since Feb. 10, can clinch a playoff spot if it registers one point.

OTTAWA - Nick Cousins brought his mother to tears of joy. After he played for the AHL's Phantoms on Saturday night, the 5-foot-11, 188-pound center phoned his parents and told them the good news: He had been recalled by the Flyers. "It was crazy. I usually call them after every game and talk about the game," he said on Sunday. "I called them and I think they were even more excited than I was. I think my mom was even crying. " Cousins, the AHL's fifth-leading scorer with 55 points, was recalled because winger R.J. Umberger is out for the season with several injuries.
