    DENVER -- The Boston Bruins became the first NHL team to clinch a spot in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Dennis Schroder Jersey . And they did it by refusing to get ahead of themselves. Patrice Bergeron and Carl Soderberg each had a goal, Chad Johnson stopped 31 shots for his third career shutout, and the Bruins beat the Colorado Avalanche 2-0 on Friday night for their 11th win in a row. "We dont really worry about how many weve won or who were playing in one day or two days," Johnson said. "We just worry about whos next. Thats sort of where our mindset is. Just staying in the moment, I think, is the biggest key to our success right now." Boston defenceman Zdeno Chara said clinching a post-season berth wont alter that mindset. "We still have to play our hockey, really focusing on the little details going into the playoffs, and not getting satisfied and complacent," he said. "We just still have to push our team to the best, maximum results." Johnson was at the centre of their latest success, which pushed their point total to 101, the 21st time the team has reached the 100-point threshold. "He made some saves that helped us a lot," Boston defenceman Dougie Hamilton said. "I thought he played really well." Colorado pulled goalie Semyon Varlamov for an extra attacker with five minutes remaining but couldnt avert its first shoutout of the season. The Avalanche had scored at least once in 80 straight games since their previous shutout last April 6 at Phoenix. "They slowed us down and they did a good job," Colorados Matt Duchene said of Boston. "We hadnt been shut out all year. Usually, it happens against great teams." Colorado, which handed Boston its only shutout of the season on Oct. 10, was the last NHL team to be blanked this season. "I thought our play was very positive," Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said. "We had a lot of good chances early on. Except for maybe the first six or seven minutes of the start of the third, I thought we played better than them. Their goalie played really well. He made some great saves." Johnson turned away a flurry of shots in the final minutes and delivered two key saves in the second period, using his glove to stop Nathan MacKinnons shot on a breakaway and stuffing Jan Hejdas shot from up close with his upper body. "They had some good chances there in the second, and I just tried to be in position and make the saves when I thought I could," said Johnson, who improved to 10-0-1 in his last 11 starts, a career-best point streak that includes a pair of shutouts. With the Bruins on the power play, Loui Eriksson passed to Soderberg in the lower right circle for a wrist shot into the upper corner of the net on Varlamovs stick side. That made it 2-0 at 13:11 of the second period. Boston also struck in the first. Bergeron slipped through Colorados defence, taking a pass from Hamilton in the slot and firing a shot that Varlamov stopped. But the rebound trickled out, and Bergeron knocked the loose puck back into the net at 5:12. "He made a good play to go to the net. I just put it in to him," Hamilton said. "He hit him right in the chest and he had a good finish off of that. I was pretty happy to have that there." NOTES: The Bruins win streak is the longest since a 13-game run in the 1970-71 season. ... Avs C John Mitchell sat out for a second time after leaving Tuesdays game at Montreal with a back injury. He remains day to day. ... Colorado D Erik Johnson turned 26 on Friday. ... Boston hasnt lost since a 4-2 defeat to Washington on March 1. ... The Bruins have also won their last six road games and earned a point in their past 13 (10-0-3). ... Boston has won its last three games in Denver. Josh Smith Jersey . Milan was held to 1-1 at home by Torino. Cagliari scored six minutes from halftime when Mauricio Pinilla blasted home from the penalty spot after Facundo Roncaglia tripped Marco Sau. The home side could have doubled its tally in stoppage time as first Fiorentina defender Stefan Savic almost scored an own goal then Albin Ekdals shot clipped the top of the upright. Josh Smith Hawks Jersey . Thats 14 consecutive losses to the two-time defending champs, and most of them were over before they even began. Result notwithstanding, Sundays game had a very different feel to it.CHICAGO - Their chances of winning the AL West have pretty much slipped away. Now, the Oakland Athletics need to score some runs before they lose a playoff spot altogether. The As continued their free-fall Thursday, when Chris Sale bested Scott Kazmir in a brilliant pitchers duel, light-hitting Marcus Semien homered for the only run and the Chicago White Sox won 1-0. The As lost for the 11th time in 14 games. Their lead in the AL wild-card race dwindled to one game over Detroit and 1 1-2 over Seattle, both of which were idle. "Were playing for our lives now," manager Bob Melvin conceded. "I mean, thats just the way it is. We put ourselves in this position." Once leading the division, the As began the day nine games behind the Los Angeles Angels. Oakland starts a three-game showdown in Seattle on Friday night. Facing Sale, Oakland posed its only threat in the eighth, when Jed Lowrie singled and Alberto Callaspo drew a two-out walk. Coco Crisp bounced out to end the inning. Sale (12-3) gave up two hits in eight innings, both of them singles to Lowrie. Between the hits, the All-Star left-hander retired 17 batters in order. He struck out nine and walked two. Jake Petricka pitched the ninth, yielding one hit, and got his 13th save in 16 tries. Sale lowered his ERA to an AL-best 1.99, boosting his bid to become the first White Sox pitcher to lead the league in the category since Joe Horlen in 1967. "Right up there," Lowrie said when asked where Sale ranked among starting pitchers. "Off-hand, I cant give you a number, but hes one of the better ones in the game." Yet the Athletics have had to tip their caps too many times since the All-Star break. Theyve scored more than three runs only 15 times in the 39 games since slugger Yoenis Cespedes was traded to Boston on July 31. Melvin suggested his team might need to get back to its loose ways again. "Weve been two different teams — the one that played through July and the one thats at this point right now," he said. "Were trying as a staff to stay positive. At times, I get upset. At times, you have to be supportive. Today they were trying. They were trying as hard as they could. Sometimes maybe you have to try a little easier," he said. Semien hit a leadoff homer in the sixth into the left-field bleachers. HHe started the day with a . Pete Maravich Hawks Jersey. 216 batting average and three home runs. Each pitcher had given up only one single and one walk to that point. "(The pitch) seemed to have good depth, but it stayed higher in the zone than I wanted," Kazmir said. "It turned out to be the deciding factor. Its tough." Kazmir (14-8) went the distance, giving up four hits, striking out seven and walking one. The left-hander entered the game with a 3-5 record and 5.89 ERA in 11 career starts against the White Sox. "Its a tough run that were facing right now," Kazmir said. "The only way to get out of it is to stay positive and keep battling." TRAINERS ROOM Athletics: LHP Sean Doolittle is expected to return from the disabled list on Friday. The closer has been sidelined since Aug. 24 because of a strained intercostal muscle. ... OF Craig Gentry was held out of the series finale one day after he suffered a concussion on a play at first base. Hes likely to sit out the series in Seattle this weekend as well. ... C Stephen Vogt continues to be slowed by what Melvin calls "a pretty significant (left ankle) sprain" and wont be available until next week at the earliest. White Sox: 1B Paul Konerko will test his fractured left hand with some dry swings on Friday then plans to hit short tosses and off a tee the next day. The veteran could return to action on the next road trip. "Im going to be back," said Konerko, who will retire after the season. "Theres no doubt." UP NEXT Athletics: RHP Jason Hammel (2-5, 4.70) opens the series at Seattle on Friday night. The Mariners will start LHP James Paxton (5-2, 1.87). White Sox: LHP Jose Quintana (7-10, 3.38) will oppose Twins RHP Phil Hughes (5-9, 3.55) in the opener of a three-game set in Minnesota on Friday night. 9-11 REMEMBERED The anniversary of the Sept. 11 tragedy brought back vivid memories for Melvin, who was an Arizona bench coach at the time. "We were in (New York on an off-day) shortly thereafter and went to Ground Zero and spoke to the first responders and saw firsthand what was going on," he said. "Its a day that Ill never forget. ... The thing that stood out to me most was the heroes who were part of cleaning it up and getting past it, the people of New York being so resilient."
