NHL playoffs: Senators, Maple Leafs even their series; Predators blank Blackhawks again

Dion Phaneuf waited a long time for this moment. Phaneuf set up two goals before scoring at 1:59 of overtime and the Ottawa Senators rallied past the Boston Bruins 4-3 on Saturday.

The Senators tied their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series 1-1. Game 3 is Monday night in Boston.

Phaneuf, a 12-year veteran, scored the winner from the point as Alex Burrows provided a screen.

“It feels great to do it here in front of our fans, it's just incredible,” Phaneuf said. “I've played a long time and this is my first overtime winner and it feels great. I tried to get as much on it and luckily it found a way through.”
