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.

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.

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.

  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 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.

An Ottawa police officer said Wednesday he does not expect Flyers captain Claude Giroux to face any charges after a bizarre incident Tuesday night. Giroux spent the night in an Ottawa jail cell, according to the Ottawa Sun. The Sun reported that Giroux was arrested for repeatedly grabbing the buttocks of a male police officer at an Ottawa bar, and it said alcohol was believed to be involved. The newspaper said that the police officer warned Giroux to stop and that the star center did it again and was arrested.

SCOTT HARTNELL will pay for his stick-swinging incident on Sunday afternoon. Luckily for him, the hit from the NHL's Department of Player Safety will be on his wallet - and not the Flyers' lineup for Game 1 of their first-round series in New York against the Rangers. Hartnell was fined $5,000 yesterday for spearing Hurricanes defenseman Brett Bellemore. He received a 5-minute major on the play and an automatic game misconduct. It was half the maximum fine ($10,000) he could have received.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Coaching professional hockey is a funny business. Last year's Jack Adams Award winner as coach of the year, Paul MacLean, is being blasted in Ottawa for the Senators' lost season. Meanwhile, in Buffalo, Ted Nolan was just given a 3-year contract extension for his work with the Sabres, who have only 14 regulation wins. Paul Maurice may not return to the bench - at his own discretion - after the best 32 games (16-12-5) the Jets have played since moving to Winnipeg in 2011.

IT IS NO SECRET that the Washington Capitals will host the 2015 Winter Classic. Capitals majority owner Ted Leonsis announced the decision on Sept. 20 at his team's fan fest. But with the NHL currently tied up in hosting its largest-ever game next week at Michigan Stadium, in addition to five other outdoor games this season, there hasn't been much time to look ahead to next season. That would include determining an opponent to face the Capitals - or even a venue. As such, the NHL said yesterday that any report that the Flyers would face the Capitals in the 2015 Classic is premature.

STEVE MASON isn't playing as well as he did in 2008-09, when he was the NHL's rookie of the year. He's playing better. "The game's a lot cleaner, more simple," he said. "Generally, [I'm playing] just a better overall game. " Mason had off last night after another sterling performance on Tuesday. His 6-7-2 record does the first quarter of his season no justice. His 2.12 goals-against average and .932 save percentage are better statistical indicators. So is the eye test. "He's been our best player all year," Flyers winger Wayne Simmonds said.
