Bruins rout Hurricanes 5-1 for 8th straight victory

BOSTON - Jarome Iginla scored a pair of goals, backup goaltender Chad Johnson made 29 saves and the Eastern Conference-leading Bruins won their eighth straight, 5-1 over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday afternoon.

Milan Lucic had a goal and two assists, Torey Krug and Chris Kelly each scored a goal and David Krejci added three assists, his first coming as he was falling to the ice on Lucic's score.

It's Boston's longest winning streak since a 10-game stretch in November 2011.

Alexander Semin had the goal and Cam Ward made 36 saves for the Hurricanes, who lost for the eighth time in 11 games.

Johnson, playing with regular goalie Tuukka Rask getting the day off, is 8-0-1 in his past nine starts.

Quote of the Day

I just think about how much it hurts. The feelings aren't going to go away, probably never. It's just something that sticks with you for a long time.
