Tuukka Rask recorded his 7th shutout of the season and the Boston Bruins ran their win streak to three straight games, beating Dallas 3-0 Thursday night.

Rask made 27 saves as the Bruins did not play anything close to a crisp game - but got the win.

Brad Marchand scored his 38th goal to give the B's a 1-0 lead in the first period.

Torey Krug scored a powerplay goal in the second period to make it 2-0.

Rask did the rest.

The Bruins are 41-30-6, good for 88 points in the standings. Both Toronto and Tampa Bay won their games so nothing changes in the playoff race. The B's are the 2nd wildcard team if the playoffs started today.

Boston has five games to play in the regular season.
