Power Play Fruitless Again as Dallas Stars Fall 3-1 to Boston Bruins

That's a sour one to sit on for seven days. As sweet as a 6-3 victory was at the United Center against those Chicago Blackhawks Sunday, the Dallas Stars' loss to the Bruins Tuesday was equally bitter. They put four pucks behind Tuuka Rask that the Bruins' goaltender surely felt he needed to stop at the time- But three of them hit the post, with only Vern Fiddler's second-period backhand finding twine. Kari Lehtonen had the much more challenging workload on the other end and sparkled through the game's first 30 minutes before the quality of the chances finally overtook him. The power play,...

Game 43 Recap: Jackets Steal One in Boston

On the second night of a back-to-back, the Jackets willed themselves to a victory over the streaking Bruins. One night after losing a tough one to the New York Rangers, the Jackets traveled to Boston looking to end the Bruins' five-game winning streak. The goaltending matchup featured Curtis McElhinney opposite Tuukka Rask. The Jackets opened the game with a new line of Scott Hartnell and Josh Anderson flanking Brandon Dubinsky. The trio would go on to have a terrific night, winning battles and giving the Boston defenders fits in their end. It was clear that Anderson was fueled by...

Rapid Reaction: Blue Jackets 3, Bruins 1

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins' winning streak has ended. The Columbus Blue Jackets posted a 3-1 win Saturday night at TD Garden, ending Boston's run of five straight wins. Matt Calvert scored the game-winning goal at 16:57 of the third period. Calvert added an empty-net goal with 37.3 seconds remaining in regulation. Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask continued his string of solid games and finished with 28 saves. It was his first regulation loss in his last 11 starts (7-1-3).

Rask's raised game brings out B's best

BOSTON -- When the Boston Bruins were struggling, coach Claude Julien made the comment that goaltender Tuukka Rask hadn’t stood on his head much this season. It was a fair statement. The reigning Vezina Trophy winner hadn’t played his best, but the team’s overall play wasn’t very productive, either. Now, the Bruins are playing their best hockey of the season and in the midst of a five-game winning streak with Rask leading the way.

Five things we learned as Tuukka Rask shuts out Rangers to improve Bruins winning streak to five games

The Bruins have started rewarding Tuukka Rask with some offense and, therefore, wins. On Thursday, the reigning Vezina winner returned the favor. Rask stopped three Rangers breakaways and recorded his second shutout of the season as the Bruins extended their season-best winning streak to five games with a 3-0 victory over the Rangers at TD […]

Rapid Reaction: Bruins 4, Lightning 3

BOSTON -- Bruins rookie David Pastrnak provided his second two-goal performance in as many games to help extend Boston's winning streak to four games with a 4-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning Tuesday night at TD Garden. Along with Pastrnak's two goals, Brad Marchand and Milan Lucic also scored for the Bruins, while goaltender Tuukka Rask finished with 16 saves. The Lightning's Steven Stamkos scored a pair of goals, his 24th and 25th of the season.

Rask searching for Vezina-worthy form

BOSTON -- Tuukka Rask knows he's not having a Vezina Trophy-worthy season. The Boston Bruins goaltender won the award as the NHL's best in 2013-2014, but his prowess has faded a bit this season. There are a few reasons for that, including the team's overall struggles and significant injuries to Bruins defensemen. Regardless, he is the last line of defense, so when the puck does go in, the goaltender is the easy one to blame. Rask, win or lose, tells it like it is.

Takeaways from B's OT win at Pittsburgh

The Boston Bruins actually won a game in overtime, posting a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins Wednesday night at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh. Patrice Bergeron scored a pair of goals, including the winning tally in OT. With the victory, the Bruins are 5-2-5 in their last 12 games. Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask turned in a solid performance with 37 saves. While the Penguins outshot the Bruins 39-24, Rask made many timely saves to keep Boston in the game.
