Bruins Make It Six In A Row With Strong Performance From Rask
Bruins beat Senators 1-0 to complete perfect trip
OTTAWA (AP) – Tuukka Rask made 33 saves for his second shutout,

victory over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.
Rask stopped 10 shots in the first period, 14 in the second and
nine in the third for his eighth career shutout, his first since a
41-save effort in a 4-0 win over Florida on Nov. 18.

1971-72, when the eventual Stanley Cup champions won six straight
from Feb. 17-26.
