Bruins eat meat. Boston eats hockey teams.

Tuukka Rask made 28 saves for this third shutout in his last seven games, Patrice Bergeron continued to light the lamp at exactly the right time, and the Boston Bruins rolled over the Chicago Blackhawks with suffocating play all around the TD Garden ice for a 2-0 win and a 2-1 series lead.

It was a statement game for the Bruins, who seemed to have no trouble shutting down the NHL’s Presidents’ Trophy winners on home ice, much like they did against the Vancouver Canucks in 2011 and the Pittsburgh Penguins only a week ago.

“I think we’re doing a good job coming back to the house and making teams work for their chances,” said Boston forward Chris Kelly, to NHL.com. “All year long we’ve really stressed being a good defensive team. Tuukka has been there when we had breakdowns.”

The Bruins outshot Chicago 37-28 in the game, settling in after a somewhat sloppy first period. Daniel Paille got the scoring started for Boston and Patrice Bergeron scored his seventh on the powerplay in the second period off a great pass from 41-year-old Jaromir Jagr.

“I thought we did a lot of things good tonight, I thought we had a lot of the play and pushed the pace, just for whatever reason we can’t capitalize on a chance,” said Chicago’s Duncan Keith. “But time’s running out. We’ve got to get a goal. I think we just have to come up with a big game and find a way to win.”

Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals starts at 5 p.m. PST on Wednesday, June 19.
