The Boston Bruins opened the last of their intra-divisional season series and joined the visiting Ottawa Senators in prolonging each other’s unbeaten streaks Thursday night.

A 1-1 tie through regulation kept the Northeast cohabitants deadlocked in the standings a little longer after a convincing staring contest between goaltenders Tuukka Rask and Robin Lehner. It also extended Boston’s point-earning streak to five games, and Ottawa’s to six.

Perhaps fittingly, therefore, it took a second look at the video to confirm the winner of the bonus point. Patrice Bergeron’s deflection of Dennis Seidenberg’s overtime point shot sneaked home to give Boston its fifth consecutive win and a one-point advantage with four games in hand on the Senators.

As the oft-applicable adage goes, the Bruins’ 2-1 triumph began from the goal out. It continued with bumpy back-and-forth action and also churned amidst a can’t-miss off-ice storyline that intersects with the contesting organization.

All of those constitute the critical takeaways from Thursday’s action and are detailed as follows.
