Bruins Vs. Flames: B's Continue to Surge, Take 7-0 Lead Over Calgary

Once again, less than two minutes into the period (1:19), Tyler Seguin took the puck into the zone, turned and found a crashing Bergeron in the slot. He connected and Bergeron one timed it into the back of the net.

Less than a minute later, Chris Kelly comes out and joins in the scoring frenzy at 2:06, crashing the slot, collecting his own rebound and knocking it past Irving.

That marked the 13th time this season that they scored two goals in less than a minute.

The Bruins continued to clobber them, and 4:15 seconds into the period, Nathan Horton got one past Irving to extend the lead to 6-0. Calgary finally laid the dead to rest, and repalced Irving with Miikka Kiprusoff right after that goal.

With just over five minutes to play, Horton found his own rebound again in front of the net and slid it past to give the Bruins a 7-0 lead. That was Horton's second goal of the game. Dennis Seidenberg picked up the assist on the goal and extended his point-streak to five games.

With 25 seconds left in the period, Tyler Seguin continued to show no mercy and found himself on a breakaway. He fired a snap shot in the slot, but was denied by Kiprusoff. The Bruins ultimately outshot the Flames 19-9 in that period and continued their dominant play for the full 20 minutes.

Tuukka Rask is still perfect through 40 minutes, and the Bruins have maintained and extended the shutout streak against the Flames at TD Garden to 109:36--a number that started on October 19, 2006.
