Tuukka Rask won four of the Bruins' six games on their recently concluded road trip. (AP)Another game, another two points. That's the way the Bruins' six-game road trip went, and it ended Tuesday with a 1-0 victory over the Senators at Scotiabank Place (recap).



The Bruins capped their six-game road trip with a 1-0 victory over the Senators, making them a perfect 6-0-0 on a trip that also featured stops in Long Island, Calgary, Vancouver and Edmonton. 

 

With the game scoreless in the third period, Nathan Horton beat Senators goaltender Craig Anderson on a rebound from an Adam McQuaid wrist shot at 1:43.

 

Tuukka Rask made 32 saves in the shutout victory, improving to 9-11-1 on the season. 

 

The Bruins announced Sunday night that they have traded forward Brian McGrattan and defenseman Sean Zimmerman, both of whom had been playing in the AHL for Providence, to the Ducks in exchange for forwards David Laliberte and Stefan Chaput.

 

McGrattan, whom the Bruins signed after the season's second game, never played a game for Boston, and he registered five points and 97 penalty minutes in 39 games this season for Providence.

 

Michael Ryder had two points as the Bruins defeated the Oilers, 3-2, in Edmonton on Sunday night. 

 

Ryder, who didn't have a point over his previous four games, had a goal and an assist for the B's. Nathan Horton and Rich Peverley also scored for the Bruins, with Peverley tallying his first since being acquired in a trade with the Thrashers on Feb. 18. 

 

Tuukka Rask made 15 saves and faced just 17 shots in the victory, his third in a row. His record improved to 8-11-1. 

 

The Bruins earned an impressive victory on the road, claiming a 3-1 victory in Vancouver over the Canucks. Vancouver had entered the contest leading the NHL in points (87) and armed with the best home ice mark (22-5-5) in the game.

 

The Bruins announced Saturday that they have signed defenseman Shane Hnidy to a one-year contract. Hnidy, who is still recovering from a shoulder injury suffered with the Coyotes in training camp, had been practicing with the team on a tryout basis since Wednesday.

 

Hnidy played parts of two seasons in Boston previously, skating in 108 regular season and 14 playoff games over the 2007-08 and 2008-09 campaigns. The B's traded a sixth-round pick and Brandon Bochenski to the Ducks for Hnidy during the 2007-08 season.

 

Hockey analyst Mike Milbury of NESN and NBC Sports checked in for his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday.

 

Milan Lucic had a pair of goals and Tim Thomas made 28 saves to lift the Bruins to a 3-1 win over the Flames Tuesday night in Calgary. Boston, which went to 3-0 on its six-game road swing, never trailed on the night, as Lucic scored the only goal of the first two periods when he connected with his 25th of the season 59 seconds into the game to give the Bruins an early lead. Brad Marchand made it 2-0 5:55 into the third period. Calgary's Curtis Glencross cut the lead to one with a power-play tally with just over two minutes left, but Lucic potted an empty-net tally to finish the scoring.

Bruins forward Shawn Thornton checked in with the Dale & Holley show Monday and talked about the team's recent roster changes.

 

Tyler Seguin has points in his last two games. (AP)The Feb. 28 trade deadline is one week away, and with less than $1 million in cap space, it’s a safe bet that the Bruins, who have already added help on the power play (Tomas Kaberle) as well as the bottom six forward mix (Rich Peverley and Chris Kelly) will not be adding a major scorer. What you see may be what you get with this roster, and the players like their chances.
