Jake DeBrusk scored the go-ahead goal and Tuukka Rask made 21 saves to push the Bruins ' point streak to 18 games in a 3-2 win.

OTTAWA — Approximately halfway through Sunday’s third period, Joe Morrow carried the puck into the offensive zone. The defenseman thought he had a chance to score. Craig Anderson thought otherwise. What might have been a chance to tie the game ended up being one of Anderson’s 38 saves.

The Bruins ended Ottawa’s season with a 5-2 win over the visiting Senators on Saturday at TD Garden. Ottawa closed to within one goal in the third period. But Noel Acciari and David Backes responded with two straight goals.

The Bruins shook off the decaf in the second period. The rally started five seconds after Mark Borowiecki was called for interference on Jake DeBrusk. On the next drop, Patrice Bergeron won the faceoff and pulled the puck back to Torey Krug. The defenseman raced down the right-side wall and gave the puck back to Bergeron. Tom Pyatt leaned toward Bergeron to defend the center’s shot. That gave Bergeron enough room to slip a pass to David Pastrnak at the left circle. The right wing hammered a one-timer home at 8:08.

The star defenceman almost scored when his slapshot went off the post just under four minutes into the game, but after that Cam Ward and the Hurricanes took over to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

Fifty-one seconds later, the Bruins pulled ahead. Tommy Wingels forced Pyatt to cough up the puck with a hard forecheck. After regaining the puck, Wingels fired a wrister that caromed off the right post. The puck then tumbled across the goal line before Daniel Taylor could sweep it aside.

The Bruins scored their third goal after Brian Gionta cleared the puck out of the defensive zone. Because Max McCormick couldn’t hold the point, Danton Heinen and Ryan Donato scurried off for a two-on-one rush. Heinen pushed the puck down the right wing and shot the puck past Taylor at 17:01.

Khudobin made the stop of the night at 13:44 of the second. Colin White and Ryan Dzingel broke away for an odd-man rush against Kevan Miller. Dzingel reeled in White’s pass for a backdoor strike. But Khudobin read the play, tracked Dzingel, and stopped the puck with his right shoulder.
