BOSTON — As far as heavyweight tune-ups go, this one was Godzilla against the Geico gecco.
The Bruins, two days in advance of their Stanley Cup Final rematch with Vancouver, destroyed Calgary 9-0 behind two goals from Nathan Horton and Patrice Bergeron and a total of eight multi-point scorers at the TD Garden tonight.
Boston has now scored six or more goals 11 times this season and has won nine of its last 10.
Even without Brad Marchand (flu), the Bruins’ offense couldn’t be slowed. Tuukka Rask took care of the rest in net with 25 saves for his third shutout of the season. He has allowed just one goal in his last 276:08 of ice time.
The Canucks visit the Garden for 1 p.m. game Saturday.
