BOSTON -- Benoit Pouliot's tenure with the Bruins hasn't been the smoothest of rides so far, but the forward at least started to turn things in the right direction on Monday night. Pouliot scored his first goal of the season -- his first as a member of the Bruins -- just 1:32 into Monday's game with the Islanders to set the tone for what turned out to be a 6-2 Bruins win. The goal also helped bring a personal scoring drought to an end for Pouliot. By beating Evgeni Nabokov, Pouliot picked up his first goal since Feb. 15 --...

VIDEO: Bruins’ Dan Paille Taking a Slapshot Off the Face is Frightening

That is a lot of blood... Very scary moment in tonight’s Bruins-Islanders game, when Boston winger Dan Paille takes a Steve Staios slapshot clean off the face.  Fortunately Paille is one of those players who believes in wearing a visor, otherwise this could have been infinitely worse.
