Post-game report: Boston 5 Ottawa 0
false

OTTAWA (AP) - Tim Thomas made 44 saves for his first NHL shutout and Brad Boyes had a goal and two assists to lead the Boston Bruins to a 5-0 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Monday night.

Thomas made his ninth straight start for Boston, which lost 4-3 to the New York Islanders on Saturday, the only game in which the Bruins failed to register a point over that stretch (6-1-2).

Thomas, a two-time All-American at the University of Vermont who played in Finland last season, has appeared in 15 NHL games overall, including 11 straight since he was recalled from Providence of the AHL on Jan. 10.

Patrice Bergeron, Nick Boynton, Marco Sturm and Sergei Samsonov also scored against rookie Ray Emery, who made his first appearance since Jan. 7 when he was pulled 15:33 in after allowing all four goals in a 4-0 loss in Montreal.

Emery, who allowed all the goals in an 8-3 loss in Atlanta on Jan. 2 in his previous start, was booed when he appeared on the video scoreboard late in the third to make a public service announcement.

He made 19 saves and is 2-4-1 since setting an NHL record on Nov. 29 when he recorded his first career shutout in a 4-0 win over Montreal to move ahead of Bob Froese with his ninth straight win to begin his career.

Sturm and Boynton each had two points as Boston shut out Ottawa for the second time in six games this season, evening the season series after losing the first three games against the Northeast Division-leading Senators. Boston has outscored Ottawa 12-2 in the last three meetings.

The Senators, who fell to 20-5-1 at Scotiabank Place, have been shut out in three of their five home losses in regulation.

Bergeron beat Emery with a one-timer 15:15 in for his 16th goal on a pass from Boyes, who made it 2-0 at 18:08 with his 14th.

Boynton scored a short-handed goal for his fifth 5:21 into the second as he elected to shoot on a 2-on-1 with Travis Green to increase the lead to 3-0.

Boyes held the puck and made a fine pass that left Emery little chance on Sturm's goal at 9:17 which made it 4-0.

Samsonov got his 17th at 13:42, putting a rebound of Brian Leetch's deflected backhand past Emery for Boston's fifth goal.

Notes: Bruins rookie Hannu Toivonen stopped 26 shots in a 3-0 win over the Senators on Dec. 1 for his first career shutout. Toivonen has been sidelined since suffering a sprained ankle Jan. 5 during Boston's 4-2 win over Ottawa. ... Senators G Dominik Hasek, who turned 41 Sunday, had started each of Ottawa's eight previous games (6-1-1). ... The Senators lost 2-0 to Dallas on Dec. 15. They also were shut out by the same score by San Jose on Jan. 12. ... The crowd of 19,551 was Ottawa's 21st sellout in 26 home games.
