The Bruins seek a 10th straight victory in Ottawa and an 11th in 12 overall meetings Monday night while trying to end the Senators' five-game home win streak. Boston dropped back-to-back games for only the second time this season Tuesday when it blew an early three-goal lead in Washington en route to a 4-3 overtime defeat. The Bruins (16-3-3) bounced back with a 4-2 win over visiting Toronto on Thursday then dominated Philadelphia in a 3-0 home victory Saturday. Boston did all of its scoring in a span of 2:18 in the first period and Tuukka Rask recorded his second shutout after allowing four goals in each of his two previous starts. "Our guys stuck to the game plan," said coach Claude Julien, who needs one more victory to tie Milt Schmidt's 245 for the second-most in Bruins history. "We looked...

Kaspars Daugavins ridiculous shootout move that was barely stopped

While he was in the AHL, Ottawa Senators forward Kaspars Daugavins successfully completed this move.  But, when he finally attempted it in the NHL, Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask made the unreal save to keep Daugavins crazy shootout move out of the net.  Rask barely kept that out, I can’t believe the athleticism he displayed to keep that puck out.  The Bruins would go on to...
