(Welcome to the TD Garden for today's matinee affair between the Boston Bruins and visiting Winnipeg Jets...) Saturday night could've been better for the Black-and-Gold, who proved that they're capable of hanging with the East-favorite New York Rangers, downing them by a score of 3-1, with goals coming from every line but the third. Goaltender Tuukka Rask stopped 20 of the 21 shots thrown his w...

TV station rechristens Winnipeg Jets "Winnipeg Jerts"

As seen on Busted Coverage this morning, a local news intern has allegedly been fired over this unfortunate typo. As to what a Jert even is, I'm unsure. I did a quick Google search and some Urban Dictionary thumbing through, and nothing reprehensible came up. It's just a typo. Or is it...? No, never mind. I think it's just part of the latest chant at the...

Ty Anderson: Rask, Bruins outlast Jets in shootout

Last year, the Winnipeg Jets won just a woeful 14 of 41 games on the road. Perhaps the biggest reason for the club missing out on a playoff spot in their first year out of Atlanta, the Jets knew that the results on the road simply had to change if they’re to compete for a spot in this year’s 48-game sprint to the postseason. And they did, in the opening two minutes...

Tuukka Rask Isn’t a Big Fan of Shootouts, Unless He’s Just Watching Them

BOSTON — Tuukka Rask has made a habit of winning hockey games during his NHL tenure but when it comes to shootouts, he’s far from perfect. The young goaltender doesn’t have an awful record in shootouts, but with the Bruins’ win over the Jets on Monday, he raises his record in the game-ending showdowns to 9-7 for his career. It’s not a very well-kept secret that many hockey...

Tuukka Rask Has Bruins’ Highest Career Save Percentage

Hopes are high for the Boston Bruins this season and the team’s goalie should be one of the biggest reasons. Tuukka Rask holds a distinct honor in Bruins’ history. Rask has played 103 total games with Boston, and he’s the franchise’s leader in save percentage. Rask has a save percentage of .926, which is .005 better than Tim Thomas, who’s No. 2 on the list. Rask has received...

Gameday: vs. Winnipeg, Jan. 22

WJLA The Washington Capitals will kick off their 2013 home schedule Tuesday night as they welcome the Winnipeg Jets to Verizon Center for a Southeast Division clash.  The Capitals, having got off to a poor start by getting smacked around in Tampa Saturday night, will need to take advantage of a Jets squad playing their second game in 30 hours.  Winnipeg lost to the Bruins,...

Peter Tessier: Capital Offence

follow Pete on Twitter HERE The Winnipeg Jets went into Washington tonight, the second game of a back-to-back, where they needed to bring some energy and performance where little existed last year. In the Jets 2.0 inaugural season they were 1-10-1 in back-to-back games, not a flattering stat. Thus, early in the season they needed to buck that trend and tonight was their first...

Hockey Notes On The First Sunday Of The Season

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, Randy Carlyle will never announce his starting goalie, which prompted this question when he was coaching the Manitoba Moose: “Who’s your backup goalie tonight, coach?” A lot of NHL coaches don’t like the new NHL collective bargaining agreement. Too many rules, too many restrictions, too many off-days, I’m being told. The...

Rask stars in net as Bruins top Rangers

Tuukka Rask stopped 20 shots for Boston in his first game after taking over for two-time Vezina Trophy winner Tim Thomas, and the Bruins beat the New York Rangers 3-1 Saturday night in the lockout-delayed season opener. Milan Lucic and Daniel Paille scored for Boston, which won the Northeast Division last year before losing in the first round of the playoffs. Rask backed up Thomas...

Bruins oust rival Rangers in testy season opener

BOSTON -- The Bruins spent their opening game giving all kinds of goodies to their fans to welcome them back from the long lockout. They clearly had no intention, however, of giving away a game as they beat the New York Rangers, 3-1, in an Original Six battle, the opener for both teams, Saturday night. "It was a great effort," center Patrice Bergeron said his team struggled...

Bruins Overcome Adversity Against Jets With Win That Showcases Team’s Resolve

BOSTON –- The Bruins had plenty of chances to pack it in on Monday afternoon at the Garden against Winnipeg, and had they been a lesser team, they may have done just that. The B’s were tested in numerous ways, but still found just enough to escape with a 2-1 shootout win, now having racked up a maximum four points in the season’s first two games. In the process, the Bruins...

Quiet On the Offensive Front

With a somewhat revamped offense and Rick Nash in the lineup, the New York Rangers' offense was quiet in their season opening 3-1 loss to the Boston Bruins. Obviously, it was the first game and players still have to get used to each other, but nevertheless, the Blueshirts did not generate enough offensive pressure. While the Bruins' defensemen are big and do a good job...

Bruins 2, Winnipeg Jets 1

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins ran their lockout-delayed season record to 2-0 with a 2-1 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets Monday. Tuukka Rask stopped 26 of 27 shots in the game and then yielded only one goal in the shootout, Bryan Little's attempt to continue the game hitting the post to Rask's left. Boston's Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron beat Ondrej Pavelec...
