Bruins lose 3-2 to Capitals in OT after leading by 2
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Eric Fehr scored on a power play 3:23 into overtime, and the Washington Capitals, with nothing at stake Saturday night, came back for a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins, who are trying to win the Northeast Division.
The Bruins entered the day tied with the Montreal Canadiens, whose finale against the Toronto Maple Leafs was still in progress when Boston’s loss ended.
The NHL regular season originally was supposed to end Saturday, but the Bruins host the Ottawa Senators on Sunday night -- a game rescheduled because of the Boston Marathon bombings.
Milan Lucic and Andrew Ference scored to put Boston ahead 2-0 before Washington captain Alex Ovechkin assisted on Mike Green’s two power-play scores in a two-minute stretch in the third period.
