Cal Clutterbuck beat Tuukka Rask with a wrist shot from between the circles at 2:22 of the third period to lead the Wild over the Bruins, 3-1, Thursday night at TD Garden. Bruins nemesis Jose Theodore stopped 35-of-36 shots on the night to improve to 8-1-0 in his last nine games against Boston. Mikko Koivu added an empty-netter with 42.2 seconds remaining to seal the win for Minnesota.
The Bruins' woes on the power play continued, as they were scoreless in four chances and are now 0-for-35 lifetime on the man-advantage against Minnesota. The Wild remained perfect lifetime on the road against the Bruins, improving to 6-0-0 in Boston. Rask stopped 31-of-33 shots in the loss. He was solid all night and made several sprawling saves to keep the Bruins in the game.
In their first game back at the Garden since Dec. 23, the Bruins tied it on Steve Kampfer's third goal of the season midway through the second. The...
Tuukka Rask will make his third consecutive start when the Bruins take on the Wild Thursday night at TD Garden. Rask, who hadn't started two games in a row this season until Monday's 2-1 win over the Maple Leafs, is 3-7-1 with a 2.63 goals-against average and .927 save percentage.
Due to the emergence of Tim Thomas as the league's top netminder this season, Rask, who led the NHL in both GAA and save percentage last season, has had to deal with a backup role, to the surprise of many. After being pulled following three first-period goals against the Sabres on Saturday, Rask came back to stop 36 shots against the Leafs.

Celtics president Danny Ainge joined The Big Show to talk about Wednesday's night victory over the Spurs, the importance of Jermaine O'Neal and who among the "Big Four" is the most irreplaceable. Ainge called Rajon Rondo's performance "one of the best games Rondo's ever played," but Ainge was more impressed by his defense against Tony Parker than his triple-double stat line.
"Not only did he control the game offensively — he had a lot of assists last night because Ray [Allen] was shooting the ball so well. His numbers can be deceiving. His defense against Tony Parker, he was fighting through the screens. I think the two games he played prior to that he was just out there. I don't think he was playing 100 percent. I don't think he could. He was just out there just to get us in our offense. It was helpful, but he wasn't playing the defense like he did."
Ainge also noted Allen's...

Jets coach Rex Ryan was at it again on Thursday as he attempted to shower Peyton Manning with praise in advance of his team's showdown with the Colts Saturday night in Indianapolis. But in the process of crediting Manning preparatory skills, he slighted Tom Brady.
"I know Brady thinks he does. But it's Peyton Manning," Ryan said, according to the New York Daily News. Ryan's comments come on the same day that Brady was named AFC Offensive Player of the Month for December - which included a Brady-led 45-3 rout of New York on Dec. 6.
Ryan's Jets are trying to avenge a loss to the Colts in last year's AFC Championship on the same Lucas Oil Stadium field. The last time the two teams met, Manning and the Colts trailed the Jets, 17-6, before the Colts rallied for a 30-17 win. For more, visit the Patriots team page at...
