Same Old Struggles Against Leafs; Stars on Deck

Bruins Leafs

I’m a little late to the dance with the recap of last night’s game, so you’ve probably seen by now that the B’s lost for the third time in their last four outings, falling to the Leafs by a 4-3 score. Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and Gregory Campbell did the scoring for the Black and Gold, while Tuukka Rask once again had a bit of a tough night allowing four goals on 26 shots. Here are a few observations from the game along with a look ahead to tomorrow night’s matchup with the Stars in Dallas.

Rask, Merlot Line Lift Bruins Over Rags, Blues On Deck

Shawn Thornton

It’s been no secret this season that the Boston Bruins have tended to struggle through the second half of back-to-back games, though their record  coming into last night’s game with the Rangers (two wins in three tries) wouldn’t have indicated so. And despite giving up 44 shots against and being vastly outplayed for the majority of the game, the black and gold were able to make it three wins in four tries with a 2-1 victory over the Blueshirts at Madison Square Garden. Tuukka Rask was nothing short of stellar tying a career best with 43 saves (no, the game didn’t go to overtime), and the the Merlot line had one of it’s finest performances of the season as Dan Paille, Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton all had points in the win.

Seguin and Friends Back In Boston

Tyler Seguin Brad Marchand Breakup

Bromance Rekindled, Hide Your Daughters

 

Obviously tomorrow night’s game at TD Garden between the Bruins and Dallas Stars is as much about Tyler Seguin’s return as it is about two teams that are playing average hockey and struggling for wins, there’s no getting around that. The now 21-year-old seems to be making a fresh start and is putting up big points with his new team after an offseason trade to the Lone Star State, while his former partner in shenanigans is off to one of his worst starts as a professional and could be on the verge of watching from the press box. So while we’ll all enjoy a few good laughs and perhaps some regrets for a few of you when it comes to Seguin, Marchand and the Bruins have plenty to worry about in their own locker room at this point, and that should be the focus when they hit the ice tomorrow night.

Bruins Preview: Rivalry Night and Duck Hunt

Bruins Penguins Ducks

The Boston Bruins have had a few days to recover from a undisciplined defeat at the hands of the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, but they’ll certainly have their hands full starting tomorrow night with a matchup against the Pittsburgh Penguins, whom the B’s swept in dominant fashion this past postseason. The Black and Gold will then make the quick trip back to Boston where they’ll host the Anaheim Ducks, who are also off to a hot start and currently sitting fourth in the Western Conference.
