(AP) — Brad Marchand scored two goals and Tuukka Rask stopped 40 shots, leading the Boston Bruins to a 6-2 victory over the struggling Carolina Hurricanes on Monday night.

Rich Peverley, Andrew Ference, Jordan Caron and Nathan Horton each added a goal, and defenseman Dennis Seidenberg established a career-high with three assists for Boston, which moved a point behind Montreal in the Northeast Division.
