It appears that the roles, even for just three days, have been reversed. Tuukka Rask, long the victim of some horrendous reckless play in front of him, was resting after one of the Black and Gold’s most defensively sound wins on Saturday. Anton Khudobin, meanwhile, found himself under siege and...

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,...

With their three-leader forward trio of Patrice Bergeron, David Backes, and David Krejci all in the same lineup for just the second time this season, the Bruins absolutely laid waste to the hapless Flyers by a 3-0 Saturday matinee final in Philadelphia. And it turns out that a (mainly) healthy...

The losses of Jake DeBrusk (upper-body) and David Krejci (upper-body) will be evened out by the return of both David Backes and Brad Marchand. At least that’s what the Bruins are hoping for with tonight’s head-to-head against the NHL-best Lightning. It’s really the only way that you can help lessen...

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.

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...

Bruins winger Brad Marchand is typically more fighter than lover. Actually, he's more elite scorer than fighter. But No. 63 showed off his affectionate side two weeks ago when he appeared to deliver a kiss right to the cheek of Maple Leafs forward Leo Komarov. @Bmarch63 Marchand gave Komarov a kiss...
