Bruins Lost To Red Wings. Boston Hosts Montreal Canadiens For Rivalry Match Up

c02f4b3c-efdc-4133-a3de-f1f342171a56-7074-0000027eea90bef2

The Boston Bruins six game winning streak comes to a haunt after losing to the Detroit Red Wings in regulation. Jaroslav Halak was meant to be in the net, but was considered a late scratch.

Halak apparently was not feeling well the day of the game and was then placed on the bench as a back up. With Halak out, Tuukka Rask did not have a very good day off. The goaltender went on to lose only stopping 17 of the 19 shots that Detroit displayed.

The Boston Bruins (34-11-12) will host a Wednesday rivalry at the TD Garden against the Montreal Canadiens (27-24-7). The last time these two teams have met was back in December of last year. The Bruins went on to win 3-1.

With the trade deadline right around the counter, anything is possible. As far as David Backes, being the veteran wing could be a good bargaining chip. A while back David Backes was not sent down to Providence but he was benched. So with the winger wanting to play in the NHL still and has potential the Boston Bruins could make a big time trade.

Starting Goalies:

Boston– Tuukka, Rask- GAA 2.14 / SV%.929 (20W/ 5L/ 6OTL)

Montreal– Carey, Price- GAA 2.70 / SV%.913 (24W/ 19L/ 4OTL)

Tonight’s Game: 7:30PM- TD Garden- Boston, Mass.

4b3603ff-27a1-4649-8831-9f9a92ed5603-22551-000007873933bb5b

The Boston Bruins took down the Chicago Blackhawks but it took overtime to do so. The game winning goal came off of Charlie McAvoys stick as the winning goal was his first goal of the season. The other goal scored came from Sean Kuraly as he earned his fifth goal on the season.

The Arizona Coyotes (27-22-7) come to the TD Garden in a matinee game. The Boston Bruins (33-10-12) look to extend their winning streak to six. The Coyotes in their past five games have only won once and in those five games, have allowed their opponents to score fifteen times.

John Moore will make his way back to the Bruins lineup due to defenseman Brandon Carlo dealing with a family matter. “Carlo took a personal day to head back to Colorado to deal with the matter”- Bruins Coach Bruce Cassidy. Moore will be paired alongside with Torey Krug.

Yesterday was a big day for Bruins Captain Zdeno Chara as he was celebrated for his relentless dedication to the community and serving others. Chara was presented with custom golden gloves made my Warrior Hockey and a $10,000 donation made to the Italian Home for Children in his name. Final key part to Charas celebration, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh presented a “Zdeno Chara Way” street sign.

Starting Goalies:

Boston– Tuukka, Rask- GAA 2.15 / SV%.929 (19W/ 4L/ 6OTL)

Bruins Win Four Straight: Roadtrip To Chicago

0d171430-56a1-4808-9b72-8469507a5528-15951-0000059208d84d1a

The Boston Bruins held the Vancouver Canucks to zero and scored four goals of their own.the fours goals were scored by Charlie Coyle, David Krejci, Karson Kuhlman, and Brad Marchand.

The Bruins head to the Windy City to face the Chicago Blackhawks (25-21-7). The Blackhawks are coming off of a overtime loss to the Minnesota Wild. While both Olli Maatta and Adam Boqvist scored it wasn’t enough for the Blackhawks to secure a victory.

Tuukka Rask still continues to be phenomenal with a perfect game over the Vancouver Canucks. Rask went on to see 25 shots allowing nothing. While he has been successful he will sit out for tonight’s match up so that way Jaroslav Halak can get back in the action.

Since playing in the 2020 all star game, right wing and Boston Bruins top player David Pastrnak has seen the back of the net only once on 14 shots. Possibly on the colder side of things, I’m sure he will begin to warm back up sooner than later.

Starting Goalies:

Boston– Jaroslav, Halak- GAA 2.42 / SV%.920 (13W/ 6L/ 6OTL)

Chicago– Robin, Lehner-GAA 2.86 / SV%.922 (15W/ 8L/ 4OTL)

Opening Day Is Around The Corner: Boston Red Sox

I think it is safe to say, baseball season is upon us. The equipment truck made its way to Fort Myer’s, Florida yesterday. Here’s a small list of what they brought:

20,000-Baseballs

1,100-Bats

400-Pairs Of Socks

20-Cases Of Bubblegum

60-Cases Of Sunflower Seeds

Now that is a lot of equipment! Spring training will kick off in about 3 weeks (February 22nd) where the Boston Red Sox will host the Tampa Bay Rays in a day game.

The Boston Red Sox still have not determined who will be the new manager but there have been a few names tossed around. Come Spring Training you have to imagine someone will eventually be named.

Through the off season some changes have been made between Cora and the Boston Red Sox organization splitting ways, and the team trying to land Mookie Betts. Some other major events that have occurred was Signing Mitch Moreland to a one year deal, along with Jackie Bradley Jr, Heath Hembree, and Brandon Workman to avoid arbitration.

Some new faces have made their way to the team as Kyle Plawecki was cut loose from the Cleveland Indians and signed for a one year deal. Along with Plawecki the Red Sox have also signed Austin Brice (Traded from Marlins) and Jeffrey Springs (Traded from Rangers).

Bruins Bring Home Two Game Winning Streak: Hosting Vancouver Canucks

dcbd7fa7-d7fb-44d4-90ee-8a41ac1fdad4-14603-000004f02cf18508

The Boston Bruins took down the Minnesota Wild in regulation with a spectacular offense.

The Bruins went on to beat the Wild 6-1 with goals scored by David Pastrnak, Brad Marchand, Anders Bjork, Jake Debrusk and Torey Krug who scored twice. On top of Krug scoring two goals, he also notched two assists.

Now the Boston Bruins return home they will be hosting the Vancouver Canucks (30-18-5). The most memorable match up between the two teams would bring us back to the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals. From then to now you could say the teams have changed.

With Tuukka Rask coming back from his concussion the veteran goaltender has been playing phenomenal. Rask has won his last 3 games only allowing 5 goals and currently has a SV% of .927.

On the other side of the fence, you have the David Backes situation. Backes has been placed on waivers a couple months ago now. Bruce Cassidy really has no desire to play Backes, and also has no intention of sending him to Providence. The veteran winger would love to play in the NHL still but did not request a trade at this time.

Starting Goalies:

Boston– Tuukka, Rask- GAA 2.23 / SV%.927 (18W/ 4L/ 6OTL)

Vancouver– Jakob, Markstrom- GAA 2.70 / SV%.917 (20W/ 13L/ 3OTL)

The Boston Bruins took the ice after a long break and came out on top with a 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets. Both goals scored came from Patrice Bergeron and Jake Debrusk.

The Bruins (30-10-12) head to Minnesota to face the Wild (23-21-6). The Boston Bruins look to continue their momentum while the Wild look to start back up after their long break.

With Sean Kuraly being out of the line up, Par Lindholm will step in. Lindholm has 3 goals and 1 assist in the season through 29 games. Along with Kuraly being out, Danton Heinen will be a game time decision.

Starting Goalies:

Long All Star Break: Bruins Head To Winnipeg

b59261cd-f50f-433a-89f7-166a0c124d28-7526-000002ce8bdd7708

The last game the Boston Bruins played as a team was January 21st where they went on to beat the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 in regulation. While the Bruins have been resting, David Pastrnak was not.

David Pastrnak was this years Atlantic Division captain for the All Star festivity’s along side with Bruce Cassidy as the coach. Not only is Pastrnak getting Hat-Trick’s in the regular season, he even gets them in All Star games. With all of the goal scoring he (Pastrnak) is most likely on the road to getting 50+.

Before the All Star break Tuukka Rask has suffered an apparent concussion after getting hit by Columbus Blue Jacket’s, Emil Bemstrom. Rask had missed the next three games due to the injury but since the All Star break was right after, he had all that time to recover. Rask stated “The headaches weren’t that bad, but it was the motion sickness.” Tuukka Rask has suffered some concussions previously in his career but he said this is the first time having that experience. Luckily for him, he has recovered enough to possibly make a game time appearance.

With the Boston Bruins (29-10-12) make their way to Winnipeg to face the Jets (25-22-4). Both teams have plenty of time to rest so they must be itching to get back on the ice. The only difference is the Bruins are coming off a victory sine the break and the Jets have done the opposite.

Starting Goalies:

Boston– Tuukka, Rask- GAA 2.27 / SV%.925 (17W/ 4L/ 6OTL)

Winnipeg– Laurent, Brossoit- GAA 3.71 / SV%.883 (4W/ 6L/ 0OTL)

Boston Hosts Vegas Golden Knight’s

28da1171-9a45-43b0-8aee-d8dd4cd637f2-40264-000014c9f3977a11

As the Boston Bruins (28-10-12) host the Vegas Golden knights (25-19-7), the last time these two teams have met we’re back in October of last year. The Bruins went on to win that game 4-3 in regulation.

Tuukka Rask remains on the side lines while Jaroslav Halak will be making his 3rd consecutive start. With Rask being absent Halak has went 1-2 (Allowed 8 goals) and as the numbers are not promising there is room for change. With Halak getting more starts now it could help him by learning more since he has been the back up.

Jeremy Lauzon got a call up from Providence to take over for John Moore, and will be paired up with Matt Grzelcyk. Along with Moore being out, David Krejci will be a game time decision. Krejci has been battling an upper body injury, but went from a non contact jersey to a normal practice jersey in today’s practice.
 
Starting Goalies:

Boston– Jaroslav, Halak: GAA 2.49 / SV%.918 (11W /6L /6OTL)

Vegas– Marc- Andre, Fleury: GAA 2.85 / SV%.906 (19W /11L /4OTL)

Bruins Win One At Home, And Lose One In Pittsburgh.

c2527910-abfc-49b9-aeaf-fbecd0011dfb-27717-000012cf6fcddcfb

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.
