Torey Krug a Bet Well Placed by the Boston Bruins

By tyler | No Comments
Published on 7:02 am

While the Boston Bruins are off to a less than perfect start sitting at fourth in the Atlantic Division as of November 8th, one bright light from last season’s run to the Stanley Cup Finals has continued to shine into the new season.

Torey Krug, who played just one regular season game last season, but followed it up with a formidable  six points in 15 playoff games, is certainly helping to increase the Boston Bruins’ NHL futures odds as a young and integral piece on the blue line.

Along with young star defender Dougie Hamilton, Krug has been seeing a regular shift with the big club in 2013-2014 and has not looked out of place. His 9 points (6 G, 3 A) in 15 games is good for fourth best on the team and top among Boston D-men. Krug is currently outscoring all-star Zdeno Chara by four points and fellow youngster, Hamilton, by 3.

Krug played in the USHL before going on to Michigan State University, playing three years in the CCHA and winning player of the year honors in 2011. Boston signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2012 when he played most of the season with the Providence Bruins of the AHL, managing an encouraging 45 points in 63 regular season games.

It was after his solid season in Providence that Krug was granted the chance to play with the big club, and he never missed a beat.

More and more NHL teams are looking to the college free agent pool as a means to acquire young talent on entry level contracts. It’s a risk free move that can pay off big time for teams like Boston in the case of Krug.

Only time will tell if Krug can mature into the player that he looks capable of being, but as of now, the young man appears to be a pretty good bet by Boston.

Bruins seek to bounce back against Rangers

By TJ Chmielewski | No Comments
Published on 4:43 pm

The Boston Bruins will try to bounce back from their worst loss of the season when they host theNew York Rangers in Friday’s matinee battle between Original Six rivals.

The Bruins played on the road Wednesday night in Detroit and were handed a 6-1 setback by the Red Wings. It was Boston’s first regulation loss since Nov. 15 and also marked the first time this season that the B’s lost by a margin of greater than two goals.

Boston was only down 1-0 after the first period on Wednesday before the Red Wings scored three times in the second stanza to open a big lead. Detroit expanded its cushion to six goals in the third before the Bruins finally got on the board with a Jarome Iginla marker with 2:25 left in the contest.

Tuukka Rask surrendered all six goals on 28 shots for the Bruins, who had picked up at least a point in their previous five games (4-0-1).

“Everything we did tonight was just disastrous,” said Boston head coach Claude Julien. “Every once in a while you get a game like that and you hope it wakes your team up.”

Julien hopes a two-game homestand at TD Garden is enough to awaken his club. The Bruins, who also will host Columbus on Saturday, are 10-3-2 as the host this season.

Boston defeated the Rangers in New York recently, earning a 2-1 regulation decision on Nov. 19 at Madison Square Garden. Rask was the difference for the Bruins in that close win, as he stopped 43-of-44 shots.

The Bruins have taken three of the past five encounters with New York, posting a 3-0-2 mark in those tilts. However, the Rangers have claimed five of the past six meetings in Boston.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 20-of-22 shots for New York in the home loss against Boston earlier this month. He will get the start for the Rangers on Friday and boasts a 21-8-2 record and a 1.68 goals against average over 31 career games versus the Bruins.

Rask expects to start today and is 4-3-3 with a 1.98 GAA in 10 outings against the Rangers.

New York enters Friday’s Original Six clash having won three of its past four games. The Blueshirts picked up their most recent win Wednesday night at Florida, as Mats Zuccarello had a goal and an assist to help New York record a 5-2 decision over the Panthers.

Derick Brassard, Brad Richards, Rick Nash and Carl Hagelin also lit the lamp for the Rangers, who improved to 3-1-0 on a five-game road trip that ends today in Boston.

Lundqvist stopped 31-of-33 shots in the victory.

“I just tried to play my game tonight,” Lundqvist said. “It was important for me and the team to bounce back with a solid performance. You feel the importance of trying to get points. I’m happy with the way I played. The biggest part of this game was the two points.”

Rangers forward Derek Dorsett missed Wednesday’s game with a sore wrist and is questionable for Friday.

New York is 9-7-0 on the road this season compared to a 4-5-0 mark at home. After capping a road trip this afternoon, the Rangers will play two straight and 11 of their next 12 games on home ice.

Bruins are on a roll but still aren’t satisfied

By TJ Chmielewski | No Comments
Published on 8:27 pm

You can always count on Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask to be honest.

No matter the outcome of any game, he’ll give it to you straight.

That was the case again after Boston defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 in overtime Monday night at TD Garden. The Bruins played four times last week, had Sunday off and were prepared to host the Penguins, a team that entered the game only two points behind them for the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

Despite the win, the Bruins were far from satisfied with their game, which caused Rask, captain Zdeno Chara and coach Claude Julien to pick apart the victory as though Boston had lost the game.

“It’s something you might expect from a Monday night game. It’s a case of Mondays, right?” Rask said. “You’re not fully awake and you’re in a blur, and that’s what it felt like. The people in the stands weren’t in it at some points and it reflects on hockey teams too.”

A case of the Mondays?

Maybe Rask has been watching the cult movie “Office Space” to come up with a line like that. But the Bruins definitely finished with more flare as Torey Krug’s goal only 34 seconds into overtime gave the Bruins the victory.

“Overall it was a tough night, a grinding night,” Julien said. “Maybe tonight we weren’t totally on and we had to work hard to make things happen. Some nights are not as easy as others and tonight was one of those that we had to grind it out. The sharpness didn’t seem to be there.”

Despite a 2-0 lead after the opening period, the Bruins did not play as well as they wanted, and if it weren’t for Rask’s 10-save performance in the first, the Penguins easily could have had the lead. Pittsburgh tied it at two in the second period on a pair of goals by James Neal. Chara scored with 5:15 remaining in the third, but even that lead didn’t hold.

“It wasn’t our best game,” Chara said. “It was one of those games that things were happening for us slow. We weren’t as quick as some other nights, but that’s going to happen throughout the heavy schedule.”

After a hit-and-miss first period for Boston, the Bruins regrouped in the second and third. It appeared the home team would win in regulation but the Penguins pulled their goalie for the extra attacker and with three-tenths of a second remaining in the third period, Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby tied the game at 3-3.

“The puck came to the right spot at the right time to the right player and he tied the game,” Chara said. “But we found a way to score in OT and that’s important. It was a big win.”

The Bruins’ record shows a string of success as they’ve posted an 8-1-1 record in the past 10 games. They own the top spot in the Eastern Conference with 34 points. Still, they’re not playing their best hockey 24 games into the season. The signs are visible but it’s hard to judge exactly how much potential this team has.

“It’s going to happen that you’re not going to play a great 82-game season, but we’ve got to make sure we’re more focused and attached more emotionally and physically,” Chara said.

Blues-Bruins Preview

By TJ Chmielewski | No Comments
Published on 7:55 pm

Tuukka Rask prefers to face a lot of shots.

The St. Louis Blues are likely to comply.

Rask will probably get the nod in net and find himself busy again as he tries to help the Boston Bruins to their first home win over the Blues in nearly 13 years Thursday night.

Boston (14-6-1) gives up a league-low 1.76 goals per game, and Rask is a big reason for that.

He ranks among the NHL leaders in wins (12), goals-against average (1.61), save percentage (.946) and shutouts (2). He’s looked every bit like one of the best goaltenders in the league over his last six games, winning five while allowing one or no goals in those victories.

He had a career-high 43 saves — one on a penalty shot — to power Boston’s 2-1 road win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday. That came a night after he stopped 23 shots in a 4-1 victory at Carolina.

“I like to face more shots than less obviously, but it’s a back-to-back game and it goes over 40 so you kind of feel fatigue out there … but I like it more than less,” Rask told the team’s official website.

He should be plenty busy against the Blues (14-3-3), who are off to the best 20-game start in franchise history and average 3.40 goals to rank only behind Chicago (3.46). They also own the NHL’s top power play at 25.7 percent, and they’re 6 of 17 over the past four games.

Rask’s only home meeting with St. Louis resulted in a 2-1 shootout defeat Nov. 6, 2010. He made 34 saves before allowing goals on both attempts in the tiebreaker as the Bruins’ home losing streak in the series reached five (0-2-3).

Boston last defeated the Blues at TD Garden on Jan. 30, 2001.

The Bruins have outscored opponents 13-4 while winning four in a row at home, and Rask has stopped 84 of 86 shots in starting three of those games.

Maintaining that success could be even more important with St. Louis expected to turn to Jaroslav Halak in goal. He’s coming off a 23-save effort in Tuesday’s 4-1 win at Buffalo, two days after being pulled in the second period for allowing three goals on six shots in a defeat by the same score at Washington.

“I was hoping to get a few shots early in the game, but not the way it was,” said Halak, who allowed a goal on the opening shot after just 10 seconds against the Sabres. “I started feeling more comfortable as the game went on, especially in the second I made some saves that got my confidence back and I started feeling better.”

Halak has won his last two games in Boston via shootouts, stopping 78 of 81 shots through overtime. That includes 33 saves and three more in the tiebreaker opposite Rask in November 2010.

St. Louis’ Alexander Steen is among the league leader with 26 points, while his 17 goals tie him with the Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin for the most in the NHL. However, the center — who had 27 points last season — has been kept off the score sheet in back-to-back games after a career-high 13-game point streak.

Steen has five goals and eight assists over his last nine visits to Boston, including one point in each of the past four.

The Bruins are beginning a stretch of playing six of eight at home, and that may be a relief for David Krejci. The center has accumulated 11 of his team-leading 16 points at home, and he failed to muster a point during a 2-1-0 trip.

It’s unclear if Boston will have defenseman Dennis Seidenberg available after he suffered a lower-body injury Tuesday.

Rask helps Bruins best Rangers

By TJ Chmielewski | No Comments
Published on 12:45 am

Tuukka Rask stopped 43 shots as the Boston Bruins took a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.

Daniel Paille and Shawn Thornton each scored for the Bruins, who have won six of their last seven games.

“We had a tough stretch before these wins and we said that we wanted to do better in our own zone,” said Rask. “We’ve kept it pretty simple and it’s paid off.”

Derick Brassard had the lone goal of the game for the Rangers, who have lost three of their last four. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 20 shots in the loss.

“We’re not scoring and you have to come up with the big saves and I didn’t,” said Lundqvist. “All of us are just not getting the job done.”

Chris Kreider was hooked on a breakaway by Johnny Boychuk during a New York power play with 6:16 played in the first period, but was denied on the chance by Rask.

Boston got on the board at 4:58 of the second as Thornton skated the puck down the right wing and wristed a shot in from the circle for his third of the year

Skating shorthanded, the Bruins took a 2-0 lead as a turnover saw Paille go the other way on a clean break and slide a backhand between the pads of Lundqvist for a 2-0 lead at 11:30 of the second.

On the same power play, New York was able to make it a 2-1 game with 7:29 left in the middle stanza thanks to Brassard’s wrister from the left circle that found the back of the net.

Rask, though, stopped 11 shots in the third period and helped his team kill of an early penalty to hang on for the win.

Game Notes

New York starts a five-game road trip in Dallas on Thursday … Boston hosts St. Louis on Thursday … New York took two of three from Boston last season … New York was 1-for-3 on the power play while Boston went 0-for-2.

Bruins, Rangers renew rivalry in NYC

By TJ Chmielewski | No Comments
Published on 8:15 pm

The New York Rangers have had plenty of regular-season success against Boston over the past few years, but were unable to overcome the Bruins in last season’s playoffs.

The Rangers and Bruins meet for the first time since the postseason as they clash on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.

In the regular season, the Rangers have won seven of their past nine versus the Bruins and 12 of the previous 15 encounters at MSG.

However, Boston eliminated New York in five games during the 2013 Eastern Conference semifinals, with four of those contests decided by two goals or fewer.

The Rangers are aiming to put a slow start behind them and are coming off just their third loss in 10 games. They were blanked 1-0 by the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday, the fourth time this season they have been shut out.

Henrik Lundqvist made 29 saves, the lone shot getting past him coming on a deflection off the skater of Rangers defenseman Anton Stralman. He took the tough-luck loss as New York went 0-for-5 on the power play.

“We had about 50 seconds of 5-on-3s out there and we didn’t connect, so our execution might have been a little bit off,” Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault said.

There is a chance the Rangers’ offense could get a boost tonight in the form of Rick Nash, who has missed 17 straight games with a concussion suffered on Oct. 8. Nash has been skating with the team and could rejoin the lineup as early as tonight or on Thursday in Dallas to begin a five-game road trip.

Nash had 21 goals and 42 points in 44 games last season and notched three assists in three games this season before getting hurt.

Lundqvist should get the call in net and is an excellent 21-7-2 in 30 career meetings with the Bruins, posting a 1.67 goals against average and six shutouts.

The Bruins conclude a back-to-back set tonight after notching a 4-1 victory in Carolina on Monday. The win was Boston’s fifth in six games and snapped a three-game road slide.

Tuukka Rask made 23 saves, while Reilly Smith and Carl Soderberg had a goal and an assist each in the first period. Johnny Boychuk and Milan Lucic scored in the third frame.

“I really liked our energy in the third period,” said Boston head coach Claude Julien. “We hadn’t done that in a long time and I really liked the effort they showed out there.”

Loui Eriksson also had an assist, giving him two goals and five helpers over a six-game point streak.

Rask is 3-3-3 with a 2.09 GAA in nine lifetime meetings with the Rangers, while backup ChadBC-HBC
