With just under a minute left in regulation in a 3-3 game between the Bruins and Rangers on Wednesday night, Tuukka Rask likely single-handedly earned the B’s a point when he was able to surpress a Rick Nash & Marian Gaborik scoring push with an unbelievable sprawling save. Nash pulled off a nifty move to get around Milan Lucic and fire a shot on net, one which Rask turned away with the blocker before “snow angeling” to stop Gaborik’s put-in attempt on the rebound. However, Gaborik wound up with the last laugh on the night as he was able to put home his third and final goal of the night just 27 seconds into overtime, sending the Rangers home with their first two points of the season.

Boston Bruins steal a point in New York

Tuukka Rask’s play was not enough for the Bruins to win two points in New York The other day I wrote about how in the past the Boston Bruins came out slow and tired during matinee games, likely due to a night previous of crazy partying or whatever the kids do these days. That didn’t happen on Monday afternoon even though it was an early-season matinee and the opponent wasn...

Game 4 Preview: Islanders -- Rask slated for fourth start

  The Bruins return to the Garden after their brief visit to New York. Against the Rangers the defense, well, looked like this: We expect that to not happen again tonight against the NY Islanders.

Rangers Finally Playing Like Stanley Cup Favorites They Are as Bruins Withstand Furious Assault (Video)

The Rangers are expected to contend for a Stanley Cup this season. Problem is, their first two games of the year didn’t do a whole lot to make that expectation a reality. On Wednesday, though, the Blueshirts came out firing against the Bruins and Tuukka Rask, and Boston was probably lucky to be trailing by only two goals after one period. NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is impressed...

Columbus Fans Welcome The Blue Jackets

from Micael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch, A year ago, the most ardent Blue Jackets supporters were organizing a protest to express the sentiment that they loved the team but did not care for its management. Another coach had been fired. The team was on its way to a last-place finish. Rick Nash, the disgruntled captain, was about to request a trade. Then there was the lockout...

Give Tuukka a break

I stated before the season that if the Bruins win a cup this year, it will be because Tuukka Rask stepped up and played like one of the best goalies in the NHL. Thus far, he is proving to be up to the task. In 3 games, Tuukka has stopped 75 of 81 shots, a .926 save percentage and 1.95 GAA. That is the type of goaltending that will keep the Bruins in contention until season's...

Maple Leafs-Rangers Preview

The New York Rangers had Stanley Cup aspirations even before acquiring Rick Nash prior to the lockout. Despite their star power, they've yet to prove they're capable of living up to the lofty expectations. New York looks to get on track Saturday night by avoiding a third straight home loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs, who have earned both of their victories on the road....

Some thoughts on the new guys

Taylor Pyatt has displayed impressive hockey sense in his first two games A two game sample size is hardly enough to evaluate anyone, and clearly none of the Rangers played particularly well in the season’s opening weekend, but here are some initial impressions of the newest Blueshirts: Rick Nash – As coach John Tortorella said following Sunday’s game, “he’s the real deal...

‘Tuukka Time’ Strikes Again for Bruins as Islanders Try Rusty Rick DiPietro in Potentially Lopsided Matchup (Video)

Tuukka Rask has been stellar between the pipes for the Bruins so far, so coach Claude Julien appears ready to ride his goalie’s hot streak. Rask will start his fourth straight game to start the season on Friday night, with Rick DiPietro getting the nod for the Islanders for his first start since 2011. It would appear to be a matchup slanted in the Bruins’ favor, but DiPietro...
