BUFFALO, N.Y. [WKBW] — Tuukka Rask stopped all 32 shots he faced on Tuesday evening as the Bruins shut out the Sabres 2-0. This is the 8th time the Sabres have been shut out this season.

Brad Marchand opened the scoring for the Bruins in the first period as he beat Sabres goaltender Dustin Tokarski with a backhand shot 8:06 into the first period.
