Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Tuukka Rask stopped all 16 shots he faced to record his NHL-leading sixth shutout of the season, as Boston silenced Washington, 3-0, at TD Garden.
"We had layers of coverage all over the ice, backchecked hard, had all of the elements we want to have to get a win. It was great to see that," said Rask in praise of his teammates for helping the cause.
Gregory Campbell, Loui Eriksson and Brad Marchand tallied for the Bruins, who have won three in a row and four of six.
Reviewing a deadline with substance

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The NHL trade deadline was supposed to become less active in the salary cap era, but a quick glance at the moves made over the last few days clearly shows that's not the case.
A total of 20 moves involving 38 players came down before Wednesday's deadline and that was after 10 trades went through on Tuesday.
More than the action, however, this year's deadline was marked by the big-name players who were dealt. Guys like Martin St. Louis, Ryan Callahan, Thomas Vanek, Ryan Miller, Tim Thomas, Roberto Luongo and Marian Gaborik gave this year's trade market both quality and quantity.
