Peter McNab scored his 250th NHL goal and added three assists in Quebec last night, leading the Boston Bruins to their fourth straight victory, a 10-1 trouncing of the Nordiques.
After Quebec defenseman Pierre Lacroix opened scoring with his first goal of the year at 6:23, Boston bounced back to capitalize on two power plays to hold a 2-1 edge at the end of the first period.
Brad Park tied the score at 10:56 when his hard wrist shot from the slot beat Quebec netminder Daniel Bouchard high on the glove side. McNab gave Boston the lead with two seconds remaining in the period, converting a pass from Park for the 250th goal of his career.
Wayne Cashman's fifth goal of the year gave Boston a 3-1 lead as the rebound of his shot bounced off Lacroix and into the Quebec net. Cashman then helped the Bruins increase their lead to 4-1, backhanding a perfect pass to Keith Crowder, who lifted the puck over Bouchard with four minutes left in the middle period.
Mike Gillis scored two goals and Barry Pederson, Rick Middleton, Terry O'Reilly and Steve Kasper rounded out the Bruins' scoring.
