Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Brian Elliott stopped 31 shots for his first shutout of the season as Ottawa took a 2-0 win over Boston to hand Tim Thomas his first loss of the season.

Erik Karlsson and Daniel Alfredsson each scored a goal for the Senators, who have taken five of their last six games.

Thomas, who came into the game 8-0-0 in his nine starts this season, gave up both goals on 33 shots for the Bruins, who have dropped four of their last five games.

Elliott stopped 10 shots in the first then made 11 saves in the second to keep Boston off the board. Thomas made nine saves in the second to keep Boston within one.

Alfredsson's seventh goal of the season at the 4:15 mark of the third gave Ottawa a 2-0 lead and Elliott stopped 10 shots in the final frame to complete the whitewash.
