Nathan Horton, who was sidelined most of last season after suffering a mild concussion in a January game against the Flyers, was punished by Nicklas Grossman during a head-on collision. The Blackhawks roared back with two straight goals. It was unassisted. The Bruins had top Swedish prospect Carl Soderberg at left in photo skating with them for the first time Tuesday morning.
Second period, 16: This hasn't exactly been Rask's finest game.
He has been appointed a No. Period ends with Rock crowd booing Devils. Final, Bruins win, 3-0: Tavares is tied for third in the NHL with 25 points, and he and Matt Moulson 10 goals form the league's top-scoring duo with 23 goals... Second period, 3: We're going to the first break scoreless. The Bruins beat Corey Crawford twice in the second period to take a 2-0 lead. No word on whether Methot will be available tonight.
Scott Cherrey and Derek Amell will be the linesmen. It was an inevitable outcome considering the Bruins have been peppering Lundqvist all first period, and lead 12-4 in shots at the time of the goal.
Khudobin has made some solid saves, including one against Phil Kessel, who continues to get booed every time he touches the puck.
Jordan Caron had an apparent goal waved off after he appeared to knock home juicy rebound of Chris Kelly's goal-mouth whack against Evgeni Nabokov. Great penalty kill. Seguin also assisted on Andrew Ference's third-period goal. Chara was camped in front of the net as he has been throughout the preseason. Except Khudobin robbed Tyler Ennis with an impressive kick save.
Tuukka Rask stood strong, not allowing a goal by the Capitals in the first 20 minutes. Lucic put the Bruins up 1-0 in the first period when he collected a rebound off Lundqvist and zipped it by the Rangers goalie.
The Bruins announced today that Dougie Hamilton will be out for two-to-four weeks with a lower body injury. He can definitely create chances.
