Rask notches 6th shutout, Campbell, Eriksson, Marchand score as Bruins beat Capitals 3-0

BOSTON - Tuukka Rask got the first win of his career against Washington, Gregory Campbell and Loui Eriksson scored second-period goals and the Boston Bruins beat the Capitals 3-0 on Thursday night.

Rask's sixth shutout of the season and 22nd of his career came just five days after the Capitals beat him 4-2, also in Boston. But since then Washington is 0-3 and Boston is 3-0.

Rask was 0-3-3 against the Capitals, but was rarely challenged on Thursday when his teammates' tight checking limited Washington's opportunities. Capitals goalie Braden Holtby suffered his first loss against the Bruins after winning the first four matchups of his career.

Boston finished the scoring on Brad Marchand's empty-net goal with 1:34 left.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
