BOSTON — We can no longer claim the Bruins haven’t produced a 60-minute effort this season.
From start to finish tonight, the Bruins rolled over the Ottawa Senators at TD Garden led by a hat trick from Patrice Bergeron in the 6-0 laugher.
In all, seven different players recorded at least one point in the Bruins’ rout.
Here’s a glance at the box score:
•The hat trick was Bergeron’s first of his NHL career. He had eight previous two-goal games. Bergeron was also a plus-4 and logged just 12:41 of ice time.
•With his 31-save performance tonight, Tim Thomas set a new career high with his sixth shutout of the season. He leads the league in that department and is tied for sixth on the Bruins’ all-time list with 23 blankings in his career.
•Andrew Ference and Adam McQuaid were a plus-4.
