BOSTON – The Bruins could get one of their injured defensemen back as they host the Islanders Saturday afternoon at the Garden. Bruins coach Claude Julien stated that Andrew Ference (lower body) will definitely be out, but Johnny Boychuk will be a game-time decision. Boychuk has missed the last two games with a mild concussion suffered on a hit from Chris Neil in Ottawa last Saturday. The Bruins will have seven defensemen on the ice for warm-ups. If Boychuk can go, either Mike Mottau or Joe Corvo will likely be the healthy scratch. Boston does not have any extra healthy...

Broken glass interrupts Bruins-Rangers game

Because of a broken pane of glass behind the New York net, the final 2:53 of the first period between the Rangers and Boston Bruins was tacked on to the start of the second. With the Rangers leading 2-1 on Sunday, Boston's Brian Rolston fired a shot that sailed over the net and cracked the glass. Cracks were visible in the glass, but it didn't shatter and no pieces of glass...

Do the Bruins Need to Acquire Another Goalie if Tuukka Rask Misses Significant Time?

The Bruins lost more than just a game on Saturday against the New York Islanders. They also lost Tuukka Rask to injury for an unknown amount of time. Rask won't be travelling to New York with the team on Sunday to take on the Rangers, so Michael Hutchinson will be an emergency addition for the B's. Hutchinson is 6-11-0 with a 2.62 GAA and a .920 save percentage this season...

Kampfer eager to prove himself in Wild debut

SUNDAY'S STORY LINE: Steven Kampfer acquired Monday from Boston for Greg Zanon is scheduled to make his Wild debut tonight. Kampfer, 23, will be the 43rd player to skate for Minnesota this season.

Tuukka Rask Helped Off Ice After Apparent Injury Against Islanders

Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask stretched to his left as an Islanders' shot whipped past his outstretched glove and the net before harmlessly hitting the boards. The harm was in front of the net, where Rask's stretch left him in what appeared to be some serious pain. His attempt to snag the puck left his legs split apart and seemingly extended beyond Rask's comfort. Rask fell...

Tuukka Rask Won't Travel With Bruins to New York After Being Injured, Michael Hutchinson, Lane MacDermid Recalled

BOSTON – The Bruins got Johnny Boychuk back from a mild concussion on Saturday, but the rash of recent injuries continued during the course of a 3-2 loss to the Islanders at the Garden. Goalie Tuukka Rask suffered an apparent left leg injury during the second period and did not return after being helped off the ice, while forward Daniel Paille also left during the third period...

Bruins New Lines Beneficial for Sluggish Attack, Deadline Additions Add Much-Needed Depth (Video)

Claude Julien made a big-time switch with his lines on Thursday night, moving Tyler Seguin up to the top formation alongside David Krejci and Milan Lucic. The move appeared to work out, if only for Thursday, as the B's took it to the New Jersey Devils with a 4-3 victory in overtime. The Seguin-Krejci-Lucic line accounted for all four of the Bruins goals and may have sparked a...

Ty Anderson: Tavares beats Bruins in Boston; Rask injured, not making trip to NY

Things were goin' swimmingly for the Boston Bruins to begin today's affair with the New York Islanders. As the Bruins jumped out to a 1-0 lead behind a Milan Lucic power-play tally, assisted by Brian Rolston (his first point since coming back to Boston), Josh Bailey's 10th goal of the season would come late in the frame, tying things up 1-1 through 20. But as Evgeni...

63. New York Islanders at Boston Bruins. ROLSTON REVENGE MODE: ACTIVATE

Poor Brian Rolston. Guy went from playing for the New Jersey Devils, a championship franchise in the NHL, to the New York Islanders which is known for a ****** arena, a ****** third jersey and an even ******** management team. It was so bad for Rolston that the Islanders put him on waivers a week before he was traded to Boston along with Mike Mottau. I believe that being traded...

Islanders-Bruins Preview
