Jeremy Swayman made 30 saves in a 2-0 win for the Boston Bruins against the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa on Saturday.


It was Swayman's first NHL win since Jan. 2 and second shutout of the season after making 42 saves in a 2-0 win at the Nashville Predators on Dec. 2.

Trent Frederic and Curtis Lazar scored for Boston (27-16-3), which had lost its previous two games.


Matt Murray made 35 saves for Ottawa (16-24-4), which is 5-5-0 in its past 10 games.


Frederic gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead 45 seconds into the first period. Charlie Coyle made a move around Senators center Tim Stutzle along the right boards and passed to Craig Smith for a one-timer before Frederic scored on the rebound.


Lazar made it 2-0 at 13:26 on a rebound at the top of the crease after Murray saved Anton Blidh's wrist shot off the rush.


Lazar, who skated his first 176 NHL games with Ottawa, scored his first goal in eight games against the team that drafted him No. 17l in the 2013 NHL Draft.

Boston outshot the Senators 22-8 in the period.


Blidh appeared to make it 3-0 at 8:08 of the third period from behind the net on a rebound from a chance for Lazar, but Ottawa successfully challenged for goaltender interference on Lazar.


The Bruins and Senators each went 0-for-2 on the power play.
