Tuesday’s game in Ottawa wasn’t as pretty as some of the previous ones in the six-game road trip the Boston Bruins were finishing, but it had the same result: a win and two points in the standings. The Bruins beat the Senators 1-0 to finish the trip a perfect 6-0-0, the first time Boston has won six straight road games since 1972.

The Senators, dead last in the Eastern Conference, outshot the Northeast Division-leading Bruins 33-22, but Bruins backup goaltender Tuuka Rask was perfect to improve to 9-11-1 on the season. Nathan Horton scored the game’s only goal 1:43 into the third period, putting a rebound past new Senators goalie Craig Anderson.

“The main thing is you’re winning and it’s always fun when you win,” said Horton. “It’s been great and hopefully we can keep this thing going.”

Over the six games, the Bruins outscored their opponents 20-9. Taking a little bit of shine off the accomplishment is that two of the wins came against the Senators, and two others were over the Islanders and Oilers — the three teams with the worst records in the league. The Bruins did beat the Vancouver Canucks, who have the best record in the league, and the Calgary Flames, who are currently in fifth place in the West.

The Bruins still have a six point lead over the Montreal Canadiens in the Northeast Division, but are now closing in on fellow division leaders the Tampa Bay Lightning and Philadelphia Flyers for the top seeds in the East. The Bruins have equaled the Lightning’s season point total, but have played one more game, and they’re five points behind the Flyers.
