Boston (ap) — David Krejci scored 1:28 into overtime to lift the surging Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday afternoon.

Reilly Smith and Zdeno Chara also scored for Eastern Conference-leading Boston, which beat the Hurricanes for the second time this week and improved to 7-1-2 in its last 10 games.

Patrick Dwyer scored a short-handed goal and Andrej Sekera had one on the power play for the Hurricanes, who lost their fourth straight. Cam Ward stopped 35 shots.

Krejci scored into an empty net after Jarome Iginla broke in alone, forcing goaltender Cam Ward to come way out to try and cut down an angle. Iginla then dropped a pass to Krejci, who fired a wrister over a sprawling Ward for the game-winner

The Bruins owned a 38-24 shot advantage.
