BOSTON (AP) — Tuukka Rask made 33 saves for his first shutout of the season and the Boston Bruins snapped a six-game home losing streak against St. Louis with a 2-0 win over the Blues on Tuesday night.
Patrice Bergeron and Torey Krug scored for the Bruins, outshot 33-17. Rask earned his 24th career shutout.
Boston played sound defense throughout against a Blues team that had won 10 of 11. The Bruins limited St. Louis to mostly shots from outside, and Rask didn’t leave many rebound opportunities.
Boston hadn’t won at home against the Blues since Jan. 30, 2001.
Brian Elliott made 15 saves for St. Louis.
