Niemi Gets Shutout As Sharks Beat Bruins 2-0
BOSTON (CBS/AP) — Logan Couture scored on one of just 18 shots for San Jose as the surging Sharks shut out the Boston Bruins 2-0 on Saturday.
Devin Setoguchi added an empty-net goal with 2.1 seconds remaining and Antti Niemi got his third shutout of the season. He got help from his defenders, who rescued wild rebounds before the Bruins could capitalize. Niemi hasn’t lost in regulation in his last eight starts.
Ryane Clowe and Marc-Edouard Vlasic assisted on both goals for San Jose, which has won seven of its last eight.
Tim Thomas had 16 saves for the Bruins, who had won three straight. The only shot Thomas didn’t get to was Couture’s backhand early in the first period.
