Matt Beleskey (knee) might be ready for Friday's game against Chicago.

He took part in Wednesday's morning skate and is nearing a return to the lineup.
Jan 19 - 8:13 AM

Brad Marchand contributed two assists in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to Detroit.

He picked up his 27th helper on a shorthanded goal by Brandon Carlo and added another assist on a power-play marker by Patrice Bergeron. Marchand has amassed 45 points in 48 games.
Jan 19 - 8:11 AM

Adam McQuaid contributed a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to Detroit.

His first goal of the season gave Boston a 5-4 lead going into the third after the Bruins blew a 4-1 advantage. McQuaid has three points and 47 penalty minutes in 43 games this season.
Jan 19 - 8:07 AM

David Backes centered the third line on Wednesday.

He played between Ryan Spooner and Austin Czarnik. Backes has seen most of his playing time this season at right wing alongside David Krejci, but coach Claude Julien made some lineup changes against Detroit. Backes had an assist and a minus-3 rating in the match.
Jan 19 - 8:02 AM

Frank Vatrano moved up to the top line Wednesday night alongside Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron.

He scored a pair of goals and registered six shots in Boston's 6-5 shootout loss to Detroit. Vatrano's promotion bumped David Pastrnak to the second line with Tim Schaller and David Krejci.
Jan 19 - 7:59 AM

Tuukka Rask allowed five goals on 25 shots in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

The Bruins built up a 4-1 lead going into the second period, but squandered it. They still managed to jump back ahead 5-4, but again, the Red Wings were able to tie the game. Unfortunately for Boston, they were unable to come away victorious in the shootout. Rask has now dropped back-to-back starts and he's given up eight goals combined in those two games. He has a 22-10-4 record with a 2.11 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage.
Jan 18 - 11:28 PM

Patrice Bergeron scored a goal and added two assists in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Red Wings.

Well, things looked good for the Bruins after the first period, as they were up 4-1. The Red Wings battled back in the second to tie the game at four, but Boston still went into the third frame with a 5-4 lead, which they also let slip away. Bergeron's goal was scored on the power play, while he picked up an assist at even-strength and another one shorthanded. He now has nine points in his last eight contests. Bergeron is up to 10 goals and 21 points in 45 games this season.
Jan 18 - 11:13 PM

Jimmy Hayes will miss his fifth straight game as a healthy scratch.

Hayes has scored twice in 36 games, clearly insufficient production for his $2.3 million salary. Hayes was signed with the Bruins right after scoring 19 goals in 2014-15, a 3-year $6.9 million contract that would be difficult to justify with real world production like two goals in 2016-17. He scored 13 last season in 75 games.
Jan 18 - 7:44 PM

Tuukka Rask will get the nod Wednesday against Detroit.

He was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, so he is expected to start versus the Red Wings. Rask has taken a step back in January with a 3-3-0 record in seven starts, while posting a 2.56 goals-against average and an .888 save percentage.
Jan 18 - 3:03 PM

Matt Beleskey (knee) is going to be with the team in Detroit for Wednesday's game, but he may not be ready to play.

He is anxious to getting back to playing and appears to be close to achieving that end. Beleskey hasn't played since Dec. 3 because of a knee injury.
Jan 18 - 9:47 AM

David Pastrnak's goalless slump has reached 14 consecutive games.

"I'd be lying if I said that it's not," said Pastrnak when asked if the slump was starting to weigh on him. "I have to do a better job on the ice and go to the net and get the first one. After a while I'll be back, but it's frustrating." He potted 19 goals in his first 26 games, but he hasn't found the back of the net since Dec. 14.
Jan 18 - 9:43 AM

Jimmy Hayes has been scratched for the last four games.

He has averaged just 9:53 of ice time per match this season. In 36 games, Hayes has two goals and one assist.
Jan 17 - 9:47 AM

Joe Morrow was in the lineup on Monday for the first time since Dec. 12.

He was a healthy scratch for 16 straight games, but got a chance to play because of injuries to Kevan Miller (concussion) and Colin Miller (lower body). Morrow logged 16:27 of ice time in his 14th appearance of the season.
Jan 17 - 9:39 AM

Riley Nash recorded a team-high five shots in a 4-0 loss to the Islanders Monday afternoon.

That's the most shots Nash has recorded in a single game this season. He has two goals and eight points in 47 contests.
Jan 16 - 3:34 PM

Tuukka Rask stopped just 12 of 15 shots in a 4-0 loss to the Islanders on Monday.

This loss reduced Rask's record to 22-10-3 this season. Zane McIntyre stepped in at the start of the third period and went on to turn aside 11 of 12 shots.
