BOSTON -- Tuukka Rask recorded his 30th career shutout as center Max Talbot, left winger Jimmy Hayes and center Ryan Spooner provided the offense in the Boston Bruins’ 3-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in a nationally televised contest Wednesday night at TD Garden.
Rask had 34 saves as the goaltender now trails Tim Thomas by one for third place on the Bruins’ all-time shutouts list. It was the fourth perfect game of the season for Rask, who has nine consecutive games with a point, going 7-0-2 during that span.
Boston (17-9-4) has won three of its last four games and improved to 4-4 in December.
