BOSTON - Tuukka Rask made 33 saves for his fourth shutout of the season, and Reilly Smith scored two goals to lifting the Boston Bruins to a 5-0 rout of the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.

The Bruins are 13-0-2 in their last 15 home games and have won eight straight in Boston. They haven't lost there in regulation since Oct. 26.

Rask (20-8-2) has allowed one goal or fewer in 15 of his 30 starts this season. After earning only 19 wins last season, he is now the third goalie with 20 NHL wins this season.

Boston tied a club record, set in 1929, by having a player score two goals for the seventh straight game. Smith has done it three times.

Robin Lehner made 36 saves for Ottawa, which has dropped four of five.
