BOSTON (AP) - Tim Thomas remained unbeaten this season, stopping 20 shots to earn his second shutout and beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-0 on Thursday night.

Rookie Tyler Seguin scored his first goal in front of the Boston crowd, and Patrice Bergeron scored his first of the season for the Bruins. Thomas improved to 5-0 with a 0.60 goals-against average; Tuukka Rask was in goal for the Bruins' only two losses.

Jonas Gustavsson stopped 30 shots for the Maple Leafs.

Seguin was selected second overall in the NHL draft with a pick the Bruins acquired from Toronto for Phil Kessel, who has not scored in seven games against his former team.

Kessel was booed virtually every time he touched the puck. And when Seguin scored, with Kessel on the ice, the sellout crowd broke into a spirited chant of "Thank you, Kessel!"

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Nikita Filatov and Rick Nash scored in the shootout to overshadow Taylor Hall's first NHL goal, leading Columbus past Edmonton.

Hall, the acclaimed No. 1 pick in the June draft, tied it at 9:57 of the third period.

Samuel Pahlsson and Kyle Wilson scored in regulation for the Blue Jackets, who have won three in a row and five of six. Steve Mason made 25 saves. Shawn Horcoff also scored for Edmonton. The Oilers have lost six in a row and are 2-23-3 in their last 28 road games dating to mid-December of last season.

DETROIT (AP) - Ilya Bryzgalov made 43 saves and Lauri Korpikoski scored twice in the Phoenix Coyotes' 4-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night.

Radim Vrbata and Keith Yandle also scored for Phoenix.

Johan Franzen and Tomas Holmstrom scored for Detroit, and Chris Osgood stopped 32 shots.

OTTAWA (AP) - Milan Michalek, Mike Fisher and Daniel Alfredsson each had a goal and an assist, and Zack Smith and Alex Kovalev also scored to help Ottawa win consecutive games for the first time this season.

Brian Elliott stopped 28 shots in his sixth straight start for the Senators.

Bryan McCabe, Chris Higgins and Mike Santorelli scored for Florida.
