Bruins Shut Out Ducks, 6-0

The Bruins must really love that home cooking. For the second straight game, the Bruins emerged victorious in their own building after a 1-4-2 roadtrip. They beat the Ducks and now lead the Eastern Conference by nine points as the season’s regular season nears the home stretch. The Bruins earned their 42nd win in the process, tying the mark from all last season.

The B’s chased Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastian Giguere early in the second period by scoring three goals on their first seven shots. They scored three more off backup Jonas Hiller in a 6-0 shutout victory.

The team managed only five shots in the first period, but scored on Matt Hunwick’s fourth goal with less than three minutes left in the frame. The B’s added two more early in the second when Michael Ryder knocked in his 21st goal two minutes into the period, and Chuck Kobasew added his 13th goal less than two minutes later. The Kobasew goal chased Giguere out of the game.

Late in the second period, Ryder struck again for his second goal of the game with the Bruins on the power play. Less than two minutes later, the Bruins struck again when Kobasew scored his second goal, again on a Bruins power play.

Byron Bitz added his fourth goal (after scoring two in his previos game) midway through the third period to cap the scoring.

Tim Thomas finished with 35 saves in his fourth shutout of the season.

The Bruins look to continue their hot streak Saturday afternoon against the Capitals.

Notes: There were 12 penalties in a very rough second period, including some entertaining fights that had NESN announcer Jack Edwards going crazy.
