Bruins; Svedberg Beat Wild 3-2 in Overtime

The Bruins came into Wednesday night's game on a three-game losing streak. Minnesota, on the other hand, were coming off an emotional loss to the Blackhawks the night before. In a break for the Wild, the Bruins were dressing young goalie Niklas Svedberg instead of Tuuka Rask, who played the night before in a 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators. Advantage: Wild, right? You would be wrong. It was a huge crowd in Downtown St. Paul to take in Wednesday Night Rivalry on NBC, because, you know, Minnesota and Boston play each other twice per season. The Wild gave of the first goal of the game...

Takeaways from B's win in Minnesota

The Boston Bruins can thank goaltender Niklas Svedberg for their 3-2 overtime win over the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday night at Xcel Energy Center. While the Bruins' Loui Eriksson provided the game-winning goal in OT, Svedberg finished with 35 saves to help Boston snap a three-game losing streak. Starting his first game since Dec. 2 (a span of five games), Svedberg was outstanding and made many timely saves, as No. 1 goalie Tuukka Rask was given the night off since the Bruins had back-to-back games.

Lucic, Rask want Winter Classic in Boston

Of the current Bruins players, only Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, David Krejci, Tuukka Rask and Milan Lucic were on the team for the Winter Classic at Fenway in 2010. Rask served as the backup to Tim Thomas, and Lucic was sidelined with an injury. Both hope the Bruins host the Classic next season. “It would be great,” Lucic said. “It’s obviously something that’s been a game guys get excited for and it is such a special event.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Tuukka Rask isn’t afraid to toss around words of criticism after his team plays poorly in front of him. And he’s there with the praise when it plays well — like last night, in the Bruins’ sorely needed 5-2 victory over the Arizona Coyotes.“We really wanted this win and we showed it,” said Rask, after stopping 24-of-26 shots. “We battled for every puck, backchecked, forechecked, did everything — everything we needed to do to win. And we got rewarded with a lot of goals. Big win.”

Bruins Notebook: Niklas Svedberg solid in relief

LOS ANGELES — There’s nothing flashy about Niklas Svedberg, as a person or a goaltender, but he continues to do his difficult job as Tuukka Rask’s backup quite well.Svedberg was solid last night as the aggressive and talented Kings sent lots of pucks and bodies flying at him, and kept the B’s in the game much of the evening. Svedberg faced 34 shots and turned aside 33 of them. He gave up a goal in the first period and the Kings added an empty-netter for a 2-0 win.
