Like many teams this season, the Bruins were reminded of just how good Henrik Lundvist is, as the New York goaltender blanked the B's, 3-0, Tuesday at TD Garden.
The Bruins fell behind in the first period on a Ryan Callahan power-play goal, and were seconds away from heading into the first intermission down by just one before Ryan McDonagh threw a puck off Zdeno Chara and past Tim Thomas with 12 seconds remaining. The teams skated to a scoreless second period that was mostly dominated by the Bruins, but they couldn't get anything past Lundqvist. Artem Anisimov made it 3-0 in the third period.
The Bruins thought they had a goal in the third period on a Dennis Seidenberg shot from the point, but replays showed that it missed and went in through the side of the net.
With the loss, the Bruins are now 8-8-1 over their last 17 games. The Bruins will now leave for a six-game road trip that begins Wednesday against...
Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli met with the media following the signing of defenseman Johnny Boychuk to an extension Tuesday night. In addition to discussing Boychuk's three-year deal, Chiarelli touched on the upcoming Feb. 27 trade deadline.
Chiarelli said that he is "fairly active" in trade talks, but that he has not been able to swing a deal because of the number of teams that have remained in contention. Asked whether he was approaching the deadline as though the team will or or won't have concussed forward Nathan Horton, the GM said he thinks Horton will return this season.
"I don't know. I expect him to be back," Chiarelli said. "He's progressing, and I would think he'd be back. In the back of my head it's that he may be something tat we have to replace, but I would expect him to be back. But we look at players and say, 'Hey, maybe this player could add to our depth but mabe he'd have to play...

Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix joined the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning to discuss all things NBA. With the trade deadline approaching [March 15] and the Celtics at 15-12 and in the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference, it would seem Danny Ainge might be tempted to make a major move. But Mannix believes the Celtics might stick with the current roster for the rest of the season and wait until the summer to try and make a splash.
"I honestly think the Celtics believe they are not out of the running for a guy like Dwight Howard," Mannix said of the Orlando center, who is eligible for free agency after the season. "I know Boston believes they can't get him in a trade, but I really believe the Celtics think they can sell Dwight Howard on the city and on the team if he makes it to free agency. … And Boston, to be honest with you, they've got a pretty good pitch. They can tell him they have Rajon Rondo in...
