After stealing a point in New York City, but failing to snatch the second one -- both literally and figuratively thanks to the Rangers’ Marian Gaborik’s baseball-swing of a Tuukka Rask rebound in overtime -- the Boston Bruins returned to home-ice for a rare Friday night showdown against the New York Islanders. Facing off against an Islander team they took three-of-four from in 2011-12, th...

Why you dont have to worry about Marian Gaborik

Gaborik goes to the net, something that’s he does more and more as a Ranger This isn’t just about Marian Gaborik breaking out in the biggest of big ways with the hat trick against Boston last night. This is about his overall performance. Throughout the game Gaborik went to the net looking for chances, for scraps, and for rebounds. He wasn’t afraid to control the puck along...

Video: Marian Gaborik’s OT Winning Goal Against Boston

…. great stuff! This was an amazing goal that I hope propels the Rangers to a winning streak. Marian Gaborik getting a hat trick in only the third game is always a great thing for these Rangers. Let’s hope his teammates follow suit now.

Second Look: Tuukka Rask making snow angels all night long

  Tuukka Rask can put up fantastic numbers. He's proven that over the years while being Tim Thomas' backup/1B (or was he 1A?) goaltender. 2013 - 1.95 GAA, .926 SV% 2012-2011 - 2.05 GAA, .929 SV% 2011-2010 - 2.67 GAA, .918 SV% 2010-2009 - 1.97 GAA, .931 SV% The two big questions coming into this season was how his groin would hold up and could he perform...

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...

Gaborik's overtime goal gives Rangers their first win

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers right wing Marian Gaborik raced down the ice, only Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask in front of him, and the chance to leave the Rangers' wasted opportunities Wednesday night behind. The teams were 27 seconds into overtime of a game in which New York had blown two leads, including a two-goal advantage. Gaborik, moved onto a star-studded top line...

Jan Levine: Game 3: NYR 4 BOS 3, OT, Gabby Hat Trick, @Philly Tonight

The Rangers came out strong Wednesday, taking an early 2-0 lead, only to see Boston tie the game in the second. A 3-2 lead went by the wayside in the third, but Marian Gaborik completed the hat trick with a brilliant OT goal to give the Blueshirts a 4-3 win, their first of the season. There is little time to revel in the win as the Rangers head down I-95 tonight to play a desperate...

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. A Claude Julien team just doesn't have long stretches of awful defense like that. Expect tonight's defense to be a lot more like this: The Islanders are currently...

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...

‘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...

The Wild are a little bit better!

One thing that has struck me about the WIld so far has been the low goal output thus far. In 4 games, they are averaging only 2.5 goals a game, with their greatest output a 4 goal night on opening night. This has probably been the greatest frustration with the Wild since they came into existence. Even when Marian Gaborik was here, the Wild just never seemed able to score. Now with...

Is Tuukka The Real Deal?

It's Tuukka Time After 4 early games for the black and gold the B's stand atop the Eastern Conference at 3-0-1 (7pts). A key component of the B's early success has been the superb penalty kill and the man between the pipes, Tuukka Rask. As of today, the Bruins have 12 Goals For and 8 Goals Against. If you average that out, that is 2 goals per game allowed and 3 goals...

60-Minute Hockey

For the first time this season, that is exactly what the New York Rangers played in their 5-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs at Madison Square Garden last night. The team dominated in all facets of the game and did all the little things to win a hockey game. This style of hockey is what made the Blueshirts so successful last season and last night against the Leafs, it was the...

Rangers 5, Maple Leafs 2

By Dave Buscema, The Sports Xchange NEW YORK -- Marc Staal's first goal of the season tied the game in the third period. His hard shot a few minutes later was deflected and poked in by teammate Marian Gaborik to give the New York Rangers a come-from-behind 5-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. Brian Boyle later added a goal and Gaborik...
