The Bruins maintained their two-point lead on the Senators Saturday night thanks to a 4-2 victory over the Kings in Los Angeles.
Patrice Bergeron scored a shorthanded goal 5:18 into the second period to give the B's a 1-0 lead, but Colin Fraser's second goal of the season tied it later in the period. The Bruins would increase their lead to 3-1 thanks to goals from Milan Lucic and Chris Kelly, but a Slava Voynov goal with 5:14 left in regulation made it a one-goal game. The B's would hang on to win after killing off a Jordan Caron penalty with 4:03 remaining in regulation. Brad Marchand scored an empty-netter in the final second of the game.
The Bruins' victory broke a six-game winning streak for the Kings, who are fighting for one of the final two playoff spots in the Western Conference.

Ohio State took advantage of foul-plagued Syracuse to register a 77-70 win in the East Regional championship Saturday night at TD Garden. Ohio State advances to play the winner of Sunday's Midwest Regional between No. 1 seed North Carolina and No. 2 Kansas in the Midwest Regional championship next Saturday in the national semifinals in New Orleans.
Ohio State and Syracuse were tied at 33 early in the second half when the Buckeyes went on a 13-2 run to take command. But Syracuse would draw to within one at 56-55. But Ohio State scored the next two baskets and managed to hold on for their second Final Four berth in six years.

The two teams were both plagued by foul trouble in the first half as 18 fouls were called. But Syracuse was especially hard hit, whistled for 12 of the 18. Ohio...
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Alfredo Aceves had his first bad outing of the spring, pitching just three innings while allowing nine runs on 10 hits while walking one (his first free pass of the Grapefruit League season) and striking out three Phillies hitters. He gave up three homers, leaving a number of pitches up in the zone on a day when the ball had tremendous carry. Aceves threw 58 pitches, 36 for strikes.
The outing represented a marked contrast to Aceves' previous spring work. In three Grapefruit League games, he'd allowed just one run in nine innings on five hits and no walks while striking out eight.
"One bad game and moving on from that," Aceves said after the outing. “Since when? I don’t remember. Since when did I have the last bad outing? ... I feel good and I see the ball jump off my hand. You know? it was one of those days that nothing went good."
Asked if he thought that the struggle might impact whether the...
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine told reporters in Jupiter, Fla., that he has kept an "open mind" about the team's roster competitions this spring, which include the shortstop position and the back of the rotation.
"The thing I’m happy about the most with myself is I have really kept an open mind and I haven’t even gone to the places that most everybody else has gone in making decisions on these things," said Valentine.
Against the backdrop of that declaration of continued open-mindedness, Valentine suggested that the amount of attention being paid to various roster spots, particularly the shortstop competition between Mike Aviles and Jose Iglesias, might be misplaced.
"It’s all ridiculous," Valentine told reporters. "It’s a good situation. I don’t see it as a problem. I see it as, we have a wealth of talent. ... They’ve all played very well in...
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox bench coach Tim Bogar has worked closely with both Mike Aviles and Jose Iglesias during their time with the Sox, including this spring. He offered praise for the progress that both has made in the time that he's known them, noting the defensive progress made by Aviles since the Sox traded for him last summer and the offensive steps forward by Iglesias in his third spring training.
Bogar suggested that the Red Sox are now facing a challenging task in selecting one to be shortstop for the team at the start of 2012.
“You know what? It is a tough decision but it’s one of those things where we’re lucky we have two guys who can play it and two guys who can play it well,” said Bogar. “Whatever decision that’s going to be, we’re going to be fine.”
