Authentic Chad Thomas Jersey

BOSTON (AP) Bruins captain Zdeno Chara didn’t hesitate when he was asked if
Boston is beginning to believe it’s a top team.

”We know we have a good hockey team with good players. If we play to our way
with our strength Authentic

 , we are effective,” Chara said after the
surging Bruins beat the Ottawa Senators 5-1 on Wednesday night for their fifth
straight victory.

”It’s easy to get comfortable and complacent. It’s hard to play with that
confidence every game,” he added. ”It’s easy to lose it. We want to stay on top
of that.”

Riley Nash scored two goals, Kevan Miller got his first of the season and the
Bruins won for the 14th time in 18 games. Tuukka Rask stopped 25
shots Authentic

 , improving to 9-0-1 in his past 10 games.
Rask was selected the NHL’s first star for last week.

”I think the last month or so everybody’s been contributing,” Rask said.
”That’s what we talk about needing to have happen.”

Danton Heinen and David Backes also scored for Boston in the first meeting
between the teams since Ottawa beat the Bruins in the opening round of the
playoffs last spring. Nash also had an assist on Miller’s goal.

Thomas Chabot scored and Craig Anderson made 18 saves for struggling Ottawa,
which lost for the ninth time in 11 games (2-7-2).

”We can’t find ways to push back – and today was another one of those,”
Senators captain Erik Karlsson said. ”I think as of right now we’re not playing
up to the standard that we expect of ourselves and I think everybody knows

The Bruins scored twice in the opening 8 1/2 minutes and eventually built a
3-0 lead.

Miller skated quickly to a rebound in the right circle and unloaded a rising
shot that sailed over Anderson’s shoulder 5:22 into the game. Heinen redirected
a perfect pass from Ryan Spooner at the edge of the crease to make it 2-0.
Spooner skated down the right wing and sent a backhand pass to the net.

Nash then blocked Karlsson’s shot at the point and broke in on a partial
breakaway before beating Anderson with a wrister to his glove side ,
making it 3-0 just 1:25 into the second.

”We’re not proud how we played,” Chabot said

Chabot sliced it to 3-1 on a slap shot from the right point, but Nash
answered for Boston with his second goal.

He broke in down the left wing, shifted the puck from his forehand to
backhand and faked out Anderson before tucking the puck in just between the
netminder’s right skate and the left post.

Senators defenseman Fredrik Claesson was given a five-minute major and a game
misconduct for a check to the head of forward Noel Acciari in the opening

some of his young players having a solid game by saying: ”Yeah, like a lot of

Cassidy’s postgame news conference.
