Patrice Bergeron continued his red-hot play with his first career hat trick while Tim Thomas stopped all 31 shots for his career-best sixth shutout this season - and 23rd career - as the Bruins routed the Ottawa Senators, 6-0, Tuesday night at TD Garden.
For the third straight game, Bergeron had at least two points and the Bruins continued their momentum from Monday's dramatic win in Pittsburgh. Bergeron got the scoring started early in the first when he scored at 3:33 even strength. Blake Wheeler scored six minutes later and the B's had a 2-0 lead after one period.
Bergeron collected his second of the night - and 12th of the season - just 2:50 into the second. Bergeron appeared to score his first career hat trick 11 minutes later, with hats showering the ice. But an overhead camera clearly showed the puck glanced off Sergei Gonchar's skate and the goal was awarded to Brad Marchand.
The Bruins announced prior to the second period of Monday night's game vs. the Senators that they have assigned defenseman Matt Bartkowski to Providence. Bartkowski, 22, was recalled on an emergency basis Sunday night and made his NHL debut Monday in place of the injured Adam McQuaid.
McQuaid was suffering an undisclosed injury, though he made his return to the lineup on Monday, logging 5:45 of ice time in the first period.
In 34 games in Providence this season, Bartkowski has four goals and eight assists for a total of 12 points.

Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich was named the winner of the Rudy Award, which honors a college football player who shows exemplary character, courage, contribution and commitment. Herzlich missed all of the 2009 football season while being treated for Ewing's sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. But he returned in 2010 to play his senior year with the Eagles, finishing the year with 65 tackles (50 unassisted) and four interceptions.
The Rudy Award is named in honor of Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, the eponymous walk-on who became an icon with the making of the movie "Rudy."
