BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Bruins snapped their two-game skid with a 4-0 shutout last night in Montreal and, while Jaroslav Halak was the savior between the pipes, undrafted rookie Colby Cave led the offense with his first career multiple-point game.

Cave assisted on Boston's first goal by Joakim Nordstrom to snap his five-game scoreless drought, then the forward added his first ever NHL goal.

"It feels really good, especially in a winning effort," he said. "I thought we played an unreal game as a team tonight ... it's a good group of guys in here, so they're always looking after you. It's something special, it'll definitely go in the trophy case for sure."

So, what's the key for him to keep it up?

"I've just been trying to do the same thing every night, play consistent," Cave said. "That's what it takes to play in the NHL, so I'm just trying to do that every night."

B's are off the next couple days. They'll host the Ducks Thursday, now sitting in the East's top Wild Card spot.
