BOSTON — David Krejci scored a second-period power-play goal and Chad Johnson made 22 saves for his second career shutout and the Boston Bruins earned a 4-0 victory over the last-place Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.
Krejci’s 12th goal of the season at 2:06 of the second period was enough for the Bruins to win for the sixth time in their past eight games and maintain the second-best record in the Eastern Conference.
Dougie Hamilton, Carl Soderberg and Torey Krug scored in the third for Boston.
Johnson started in place of Tuukka Rask, who was pulled during Thursday’s loss to the Montreal Canadiens.
Edmonton goalie Ben Scrivens was coming off a scintillating performance against San Jose on Wednesday, when he set the NHL regular-season record for saves in a regulation shutout with 59 during the Oilers’ 3-0 win over the Sharks.
Scrivens made 37 saves on Saturday.Tweet
