Horton, Bergeron lead Bruins to 9-0 rout of Flames 

Nathan Horton and Patrice Bergeron each had two goals and an assist, Tuukka Rask earned his third shutout in four starts and the rampaging Boston Bruins cruised to a 9-0 blowout of the road-weary Calgary Flames on Thursday night.

The win was the ninth in 10 games for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who have outscored the opposition 49-13 during that span, with Rask and Tim Thomas combining for four shutouts.

The Bruins won their previous home game 8-0 over Florida.

Rask, who stopped 25 shots for the 11th shutout of his career, has allowed one goal in his last four starts.

The Flames ended a seven-game road trip with their fifth straight loss, going 2-4-1 on the journey.
