Chris Kelly scored 3:39 into overtime and Zdeno Chara had two goals to lead the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win against the Washington Capitals at TD Garden on Monday night.

Kelly scored on a rebound of a shot from the left point by defenseman Matt Bartkowski. It was Kelly's second goal of the preseason.

The Bruins outshot the Capitals 38-14. Tuukka Rask made 12 saves for the Bruins, while Braden Holtby stopped 35 shots for Washington.

"We're going to have to make some tough decisions at the end [of training camp]," Bruins coach Claude Julien said.

Connor Carrick scored 11:16 into the second period to give the Capitals a 1-0 lead on their second shot of the night.

"He's impressed us throughout the summer and done a good job," Washington coach Adam Oates said of Carrick. "He played good tonight. It's not always going to be that easy, but it's a great sign. He's playing very well."

Chara scored the game's next two goals, at 18:22 of the second period and 22 seconds into the third period on a 5-on-3 power play. Martin Erat tied the game for Washington at 6:38 of the third.

"He's got the long reach and retrieving those loose pucks, [and] he's very good at it as well," Julien said of Chara. "I think there's a lot more qualities in Zdeno up front than people think. I know people see the size of him for a screen, but he does more things than that to be valuable in front."

Material from wire services was used in this report.
