Found January 23, 2013 on The Nosebleeds:
Rangers 4, Bruins 3 (OT) The Bruins headed into the Big Apple on Wednesday night for a nationally televised rematch of last Saturday’s season-opener against the Rangers, which the B’s won 3-1. Both teams had two games under their belt in this shortened season heading into Wednesday’s “Rivalry Night” – the Bruins undefeated after beating the Jets in a shootout on Monday, and the Rangers winless after getting overrun 6-3 by the Penguins on Sunday. But it was the Rangers who looked ready to play right out of the gate this time around, with Marian Gaborik netting a pair of goals within the opening seven minutes to give the Blue Crew an early 2-0 lead. After a sloppy and sluggish first period, the Bruins managed to tighten up during the first intermission and own the second period. Just over a minute into the period, Brad Marchand netted his second goal of the season and cut the Rangers lead in half when he was able to tip in a Dougie Hamilton shot from the point on a Bruins power play chance, giving the 19-year old Hamilton his first career NHL point. And yes, you did read that right – the Bruins scored…on the power play! Despite his loads of talent, Dougie Hamilton clearly doesn’t quite understand how the Bruins power play scheme (“whatever you do, don’t score”) works yet. Milan Lucic also added his second goal of the season about ten minutes later when he was able to stuff in a Henrik Lundqvist rebound on a gritty second chance effort in front of the Rangers net. That one tied the game, but not for long. Taylor Pyatt scored and reclaimed the lead for the Rangers less than a minute later, a lead they would hold until just under five minutes left in regulation. Exactly a year and one day after suffering his last concussion, one that would keep him sidelined for months, Nathan Horton scored his first goal since returning to the ice – one that tied the game, forced overtime, and proved to B’s fans that Horton still had the clutch gene that made him so beloved in 2010. Also proving he possessed the clutch gene was Tuukka Rask, who probably single-handedly secured the Bruins a point by robbing Rick Nash & Marian Gaborik with an unbelievable sprawling “snow angel” save with under a minute left to go in regulation. However, B’s fans barely had time to get excited about extra hockey before Gaborik drilled home his third (and most beautiful) goal of the night. Andrew Ference couldn’t handle a Chris Kelly pass in the Bruins offensive zone and Gaborik was able to come away with the loose puck and use his breakaway speed to close in on Rask, who denied Gaborik’s first shot but wasn’t able to stop the seconds effort, which Gaborik batted out of mid-air for the win.

Bruins’ Put Selves in Early Hole, Bounce Back Well in Loss to Rangers (Video)

Going down early to the Rangers 2-0, the Bruins looked flat coming out of the gate at Madison Square Garden.

Free Hat for Gaborik. BRUINS LOSE.

  I wish I could come here and tell you that I'm disappointed in the Bruins 4-3 overtime loss in New York last night, but I can't. Honestly, Boston was lucky to come away with a point because they had absolutely no business going to overtime. Boston's defense played terribly for about a period and a half before they decided to wake up and even then...yikes. Outside...

Tuukka Rask Robs Rick Nash & Marian Gaborik With Sprawling Save
