BOSTON, Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Ed Belfour made 25 saves for his 67th career shutout Thursday night as Toronto won its seventh straight, 6-0 over Boston.

Joe Nieuwendyk and Darcy Tucker scored two goals apiece.

With seven saves in the first period, eight in the second and 10 in the third, Belfour pulled even with Roy Worters for 11th place on the all-time list. He has two this season, leaving him two behind New Jersey's Martin Brodeur for 10th.

Brodeur's former teammate, Joe Nieuwendyk, gave Belfour all the support he needed with a power-play goal late in the first period. He scored another 7 1/2 minutes into the third for his first multi-goal game with Toronto.

Tucker scored goals 28 seconds apart later in the third to pad the lead. The tallies gave him four in his last five games.
