OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - David Krejci's shootout goal won the game for the Bruins. It was the attempt by Ottawa's Kaspars Daugavins that had everyone talking after the game.

The Senators' forward carried the puck straight toward goalie Tuuka Rask by pinning it with the toe of his stick, then tried a 360-spin move before failing to jam the puck between the post and the skate of Boston's netminder.

Krejci scored on the following attempt and the Bruins defeated the Senators 3-2 Monday night for their 10th straight win in Ottawa.

"The (skate blade of Rask) got my puck and usually I just push it in," Daugavins said. "It (stinks) not to score that. If the blade doesn't touch I can just (push it) because his pad is pretty weak against the stick. I had room to put it under, but then I just took the safe way. It's a little unlucky.

"Now I look like a fool."

It wasn't the first time Daugavins had tried the move. He was successful with it early this season during an American Hockey league game with the Binghamton Senators.

"My initial reaction when the stick went down was `buckle up,"' Senators coach Paul MacLean said of Daugavins' attempt.

"It was very entertaining. I hadn't seen it (before), but apparently there is a history there and there's a history of success."

MacLean was asked if he thought a move like that was more suited to an all-star game type setting.

"He had an opportunity to score didn't he? My only question is was it legal, but apparently it is. He's trying to do what he can to score a goal," MacLean said.

Rask made 30 saves in regulation and stopped three of four Senators in the shootout, including the bizarre attempt by Daugavins.

Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille scored for Boston, which rallied from a 2-0 deficit to win its 10th straight in Ottawa.

Guillaume Latendresse - in his first game back from injury since Jan. 30 - and Kyle Turris scored in regulation for the Senators. Robin Lehner made 33 saves through three periods and overtime.

"It was great for Guillaume. With the work that he's put in, it was great to see him get a goal like that and get off the mark right away," MacLean said.

"We did a lot of things right playing against that team for as long as we did and we had an opportunity to win. I thought our team competed from start to finish and were very deserving of a point if not more."

Paille tied the game 2-2 at 8:53 of the second period, beating Lehner on the stick side after Krejci made a 50-foot pass up the middle to send Paille in all alone.

"David's a disher and David did what he had to do. He put it right on the tape and Dan took care of the rest," Bruins coach Claude Julien said.

The Senators got off to a good start as they built a 2-0 lead before the midway point of the first period, with both scorers snapping goalless droughts.

After missing the last 18 games recovering from the effects of whiplash, Latendresse scored his first of the year just 55 seconds into the game after being sprung on a breakaway by defenseman Sergei Gonchar.

As happy as Latendresse was to be back in the lineup and contributing, Turris was probably happier as he finally scored after going 21 games without a goal.

Turris picked up the puck inside the Boston blue-line, curled in and fired a wrist shot over the shoulder of Rask and in for his fifth goal of the season.

"It felt good. It's a confidence booster that hopefully I'll keep building off of," said Turris, who also had the only goal for the Senators in the shootout. He liked the attempt of his teammate though.

"It was a creative, great move and I thought it was in. The goalie made a quick reaction and made a really good save on it."

The Bruins pulled to within a goal as Thornton's wobble-shot got tangled up in Lehner's equipment and ended up over the goal line with less than a minute to play in the opening period.

"It was huge," Julien said of the Thornton goal.

"We talked about it after the period and it got us back to within a goal and it was something that I thought was a big turning point in the game and it gave us some momentum going into the second period."

NOTES: Jay Pandolfo, Aaron Johnson and Lane MacDermid were scratches for Boston. ... Milan Michalek and Peter Regin were scratches for Ottawa. ...
