Varlamov turned aside all 27 shots in Monday's 1-0 win over the Bruins.

He was locked in a goaltending battle with Tuukka Rask until late in the third period, and Varlamov then made Jean-Gabriel Pageau's tally hold up as the game winner. The veteran netminder has begun the campaign with back-to-back shutouts in his first two starts, sandwiched around a minor jaw injury that sidelined him for a game. It's early, but with Ilya Sorokin failing to impress in his NHL debut Saturday, Varlamov could be headed for a bigger workload this season than expected.
