Ottawa Defeats B’s, 6-3\r\n
Podcast: BruinsCast

Boston -- In their final game of the 2006-07 season, the Bruins fell to the Ottawa Senators, 6-3, in front of a sellout crowd at the TD Banknorth Garden Saturday night.

Ottawa's Jason Spezza scored the game winner when he beat Tim Thomas with the Senators fourth goal at 8:52 of the second period.

"We were battling," said B's captain Zdeno Chara. "But we started taking some unnecessary penalties that cost us the game."

There was a wild start to the season ender at the Garden as the Black & Gold and their Canadian counterparts traded a pair of goals each, as predictably, the brakes were off of both clubs in the first.

Boston's Marco Sturm started the scoring with his 27th goal of the year at just 1:28 of the first period. Ottawa countered when Mike Comrie scored his 20th of the campaign at 3:25.

Rookie Petr Kalus continued his hot streak when he beat Ottawa's Ray Emery with his fourth at 5:57.

"That was a great play in the neutral zone by Shean Donovan," said Kalus of the play that developed into the goal. "Both me and (Marc Savard) went to the net (there was a shot) and I went for the rebound."

But Jason Spezza put his 33rd by Tim Thomas at 6:50 to knot the score at 2-all.

The second period was exciting, just not especially so for Boston fans.

The Senators scored two goals to put the Bruins in a 4-2 hole midway through the second period. Ottawa's Dany Heatley scored his 50th goal at 5:51 and his teammate Jason Spezza scored his 34th goal at 8:52.

Petr Tenkrat made it a game when he scored his ninth goal, on the power play, at 3:42 of the third period, but the Sens Daniel Alfredsson scored his 29th, also on the power play, to make the score 5-3.

Former Boston College Eagle turned Senator, Patrick Eaves, scored Ottawa's sixth goal at 9:24 effectively icing the game for the visitors.

"I know that right now we are not good enough," said Bruins head coach Dave Lewis of his team after the final game of the season. "We have to get better."
