(AP) TAMPA, Fla. - Tuukka Rask stopped 23 shots and five Boston players scored to help the Bruins beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-0 on Saturday night.

Rask made a nifty glove save on Steven Stamkos’ point-blank redirection in the third period. It was the goalie’s first shutout this season and 17th overall.

David Krejci, Adam McQuaid, Patrice Bergeron, Chris Kelly and Shawn Thornton scored for the Bruins, who have won six in a row against Tampa Bay. Boston leads the all-time series 50-20-9.

Krejci stopped a nine-game goal drought to put the Bruins up 1-0 from the low slot off a pass from Milan Lucic 1:32 into the game. Krejci has a point in four straight games.

After McQuaid scored his first goal in 24 games at 4:37 of the second, goals 55 seconds apart later in the period by Bergeron (14:52) and Kelly (15:47) made it 4-0.

Thornton extended Boston’s advantage to 5-0 just 34 seconds into the third as the left wing ended his 29-game goal drought.

Tampa Bay goalie Ben Bishop, who won all five of his previous games this season, was pulled after Kelly’s goal and replaced by Anders Lindback. Bishop allowed four goals on 17 shots.

NOTES: Lightning COO Steve Griggs told a group of employees during a meeting in the stands before the game that the team is working hard to bring the All-Star game to Tampa and that NHL officials were present at Tuesday night’s game against Los Angeles. ... Bruins C Carl Soderberg returned after missing the first six games of the season due to an ankle injury. He had an assist. ... Boston RW Jordan Caron was scratched. ... Bruins RW Jarome Iginla played in his 1,239th NHL game, which moved him past Doug Weight into 80th place on the career list. He had an assist and a fight.
