In keeping up with what’s been the theme of their season, the Bruins played their most anticipated game of the season, a Saturday night showdown against Claude Julien and the Canadiens, the same night and time as an obviously far more important local game. But fortunately for viewers unwilling to...

I am George Costanza and this upcoming column is the eclair sitting atop the trash . The Bruins have a healthy lead for a playoff spot. They have recorded wins in all but six of their last 23 games, and entered their bye week with an 11-game point streak. Oh, and the players the Bruins need to be...

Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask ended his year with a bang, and was properly rewarded on Tuesday, as Rask was named the NHL’s First Star for the month of December. After watching most of November from the bench as a backup to the then-sizzling Anton Khudobin, the 30-year-old Rask rebounded and...

With Anton Khudobin's hot streak seemingly done after a 10-of-14 showing in Monday's loss to the Predators, Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy has confirmed that it'll be Tuukka Rask in the crease for Thursday's head-to-head with the visiting Coyotes. This was probably always going to be the case...

The Bruins appear to have a new problem brewing: They have two goalies approaching and/or at the top of their game, and have just one net to give on a nightly basis. After what was largely a November to forget, Tuukka Rask has rattled off back-to-back wins and started the last three games overall,...

It turns out that Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask will make consecutive starts for the first time in nearly a month, as B’s head coach Bruce Cassidy confirmed Rask as his starter for the Black and Gold’s pivotal home game against the Atlantic-leading Lightning tonight at TD Garden. Why? “I don’t know...

Tuukka Rask was not the biggest problem for the Bruins on Sunday. At the same time, though, it’s tough to definitively say that Rask belongs in the crease when the Bruins play host to the East-best Lightning on Wednesday. That’s because he does not. It would be nice to see if Rask, who remains a...

It’s no secret that Tuukka Rask has not lived up to his contract or resume this season. But at the same time, and as weird as this may sound when talking about a goalie of Rask’s caliber, it’s hard to say that the Bruins have given him a lot to work with thus far. And Sunday’s 4-2 loss to the...

The Bruins are going back to Tuukka Rask and sitting the white-hot Anton Khudobin. For at least one game, anyway. Back in a ‘fair’ situation with a full day of practice at Warrior Ice Arena on Saturday (something the Black and Gold did not have by taking Thanksgiving off and then skating in a...
