Rask, Bruins blank Sabres 2-0 for 5th consecutive victory

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Tuukka Rask missed 17 games through March and April. He's healthy and well-rested now, and showed the Boston Bruins he can be a difference maker down the stretch.

Rask recorded his first shutout of the season and extended the Bruins winning streak to five games in a 2-0 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.

Rask made 32 saves, including a highlight-reel save on Sabres rookie Dylan Cozens in the first period that helped give the Bruins their seventh win in nine games.
