Struggling Bruins Shut Out by Blue Jackets

Is it time for the Bruins to panic? Not quite, but this recent trend of losing has to be disconcerting. The last thing the B’s needed was to face dominant goaltender Steve Mason, who is looking to lead the Blue Jackets to their first playoff berth in their eight-year history.

Mason delivered Tuesday night, earning his NHL-best ninth shutout of the season, stopping 35 shots for the 2-0 victory.

Raffi Torres broke a scoreless tie seven minutes into the third period, and Rick Nash added the empty-netter to put the game away.

Tim Thomas also had a strong game, finishing with 32 saves in 33 chances for the Bruins, who lost their fourth straight road game.

Desperately needing to get back on track, the Bruins (43-16-9) will face the Ottowa Senators (26-29-10) Thursday night.
