Bruins defeat Senators 3-2 in a shootout
Paille tied the game 2-2 at 8:53 of the second period, beating Lehner on the stick side after Krejci made a 50-foot pass up the middle to send Paille in all alone.
"David's a disher and David did what he had to do. He put it right on the tape and Dan took care of the rest," Bruins coach Claude Julien said.
The Senators got off to a good start as they built a 2-0 lead before the midway point of the first period, with both scorers snapping goalless droughts.
After missing the last 18 games recovering from the effects of whiplash, Latendresse scored his first of the year just 55 seconds into the game after being sprung on a breakaway by defenseman Sergei Gonchar.
As happy as Latendresse was to be back in the lineup and contributing, Turris was probably happier as he finally scored after going 21 games without a goal.
Turris picked up the puck inside the Boston blue-line, curled in and fired a wrist shot over the shoulder of Rask and in for his fifth goal of the season.
"It felt good. It's a confidence booster that hopefully I'll keep building off of," said Turris, who also had the only goal for the Senators in the shootout. He liked the attempt of his teammate though.
"It was a creative, great move and I thought it was in. The goalie made a quick reaction and made a really good save on it."
The Bruins pulled to within a goal as Thornton's wobble-shot got tangled up in Lehner's equipment and ended up over the goal line with less than a minute to play in the opening period.
"It was huge," Julien said of the Thornton goal.
"We talked about it after the period and it got us back to within a goal and it was something that I thought was a big turning point in the game and it gave us some momentum going into the second period."
