Marian Gaborik completed his hat trick in overtime Wednesday night, burying the rebound of his own breakaway bid to give the Rangers a 4-3 win over the Bruins.

Gaborik also scored twice in the first period, giving the Rangers a 2-0 lead before second-period goals from Brad Marchand and Milan Lucic tied the game. Forty seconds later, however, Taylor Pyatt beat Tuukka Rask to give the Rangers the lead until Nathan Horton tied it in the third with his first goal since suffering a season-ending concussion last Jan. 22.

Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg will not play vs. the Rangers Wednesday night, missing his second consecutive game with a lower-body injury.

Seidenberg participated fully in the team’s practice Tuesday, after which Claude Julien said the blueliner was “pretty close” but still day-to-day. Brad Marchand, who missed Tuesday’s practice, was reportedly on the ice for pre-game warmups Wednesday night.

WILMINGTON — With the 0-2-0 Rangers waiting in New York, the Bruins on Tuesday returned to practice in anticipation of a rematch of the season-opener.

The Bruins have gotten off to the start they were hoping for through two games, as they enter a big matchup with the Rangers Wednesday with a 2-0-0 record. 



Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron scored in a shootout and Tuukka Rask made two saves in the three rounds as the Bruins improved to 2-0-0 with a 2-1 win over the Jets Monday at TD Garden.

Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg will not play in Monday’s matinee against the Jets due to a lower-body injury, according to the team. Aaron Johnson is in the lineup in his place. The team said Seidenberg is day-to-day.

The Bruins announced Sunday that they have sent defenseman David Warsofsky to Providence and recalled blueliner Aaron Johnson.

Johnson, who was signed in the offseason after playing last season with the Blue Jackets, was sent to Providence on a conditioning loan Thursday. He played two games for Providence during the loan, registering one assist.

It was easy to question Milan Lucic’s conditioning entering the season because he didn’t play in Europe or make a ton of appearances at practices organized by teammates during the lockout. Maybe those questions were warranted, and maybe they weren’t.



The Bruins started things off right Saturday, opening the 48-game season with a 3-1 win over the Rangers at TD Garden.

Milan Lucic got the Bruins on the board in the first period thanks to a nice play that was started by Andrew Ference. The veteran blueliner hit David Krejci with a pass at the Rangers’ blue line, and Krejci fired a snapshot that yielded a kick save from Henrik Lundqvist that bounced right to Lucic. The 24-year-old buried the rebound to give the B’s a 1-0 lead.

Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs released the following statement prior to the start of Saturday night’s season-opener against the Rangers:
