Pastrnak accepted a cross pass from Taylor Hall and fired a one-timer that beat Anton Forsberg 2:42 into overtime.
Jake DeBrusk and Brandon Carlo also scored for the Bruins, who snapped a two-game losing streak. Jeremy Swayman made 29 saves.
Tim Stützle and Nick Holden replied for the Senators, who got a 30-save performance from Forsberg.
Holden forced overtime when his shot from the slot eluded Swayman’s vigilance with less than four minutes remaining in the third period.
