The Boston Bruins were in a bind with Tuukka Rask being on the IR but that didn’t stop him from making an appearance for his 500th game on January 16th. Rask suffered a concussion last Tuesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets but since making an appearance last Thursday I doubt he will be out long.
The Bruins ended up taking down the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 in regulation on Thursday. The same two teams faced off today in a matinee but that game went on to be a Pittsburgh victory (4-3 in regulation). With the Bruins dropping that game they reached the double digits in the loss column.
With David Krejci being absent from last Thursday’s game and today’s game, Karson Kuhlman stepped into to full fill that role. Kuhlman went on to get a total of two assists and for someone just coming up from Providence that’s a decent start. So for future games, when a call to Providence is needed you can guarantee he will be a goto.
Boston Bruins announced that David Backes will be on waivers and will make his way to Providence for assignment. So potentially there could be a trade in the making or it’s just to make some room on the roster.
David Pastrnak looks to get back on track by providing a total of one goal and three assists. While he doing a great amount of work, Brad Marchand still remains cold. Marchand only scored a goal and an assist out of both games.
