OTTAWA - Forget Fearless.

The Sens got their “Pesky” back in a big way, ending a streak of home ice futility against the Bruins that dated back to April 7, 2009, with Boston taking 11 straight games in Ottawa in between.

And with the Bruins poised to become the first team in 30 years to win a dozen straight road games against a single opponent — the longest streak since the high-flying Habs did it to the Devils from 1976 to 1984 — the Senators looked to their leaders to stem the tide.

Facing a 2-1 deficit to start the third, Jason Spezza took a cross-seam pass from Erik Karlsson and wired home his first goal in five games — and first point in four — and then set up Jared Cowen for a blast from the point to take their first lead of the game 5:42 into the third.
