BOSTON, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- Tuukka Rask made 33 saves in picking up his fourth shutout of the season Friday, sending Boston coasting to a 5-0 win over Ottawa.

The teams will play again Saturday in Ottawa.

Reilly Smith scored twice, boosting the Bruins to their third straight win and their eighth in 10 contests.

David Krejci, Jarome Iginla and Brad Marchand also produced a goal each for the Bruins. The shutout was the 20th of Rask's seven-year career, all of which has been spent with Boston.

Boston had only a 1-0 lead heading into the third period, but Krejci gave the Bruins some breathing room by scoring just 38 seconds into the stanza.

All five goals were surrendered by Robin Lehner on 42 shots. It was Ottawa's fourth loss in five games.
