Riley Nash scored both goals in a 2-1 win against the Islanders Saturday night.

Nash scored his sixth and seventh goals of the season as the lone scorer for the Bruins. This was his second multi-point game in a row after scoring a goal and an assist against Tampa Bay on Thursday. These back-to-back games are also the only times this season he’s had multiple points in a game.

Anton Khudobin faced only 19 shots Saturday night and let in one goal as the Bruins beat the Islanders 2-1.

Khudobin has now leveled his wins and losses at 6-5-1. His last five decisions have all been wins, however, and in them he has a .924. It is time to ride his fantasy bandwagon.

Matt Beleskey is on family leave and will consequently miss Saturday's contest.

Beleskey has three goals and eight points in 43 games this season. Jimmy Hayes is drawing into the lineup.

Anton Khudobin will play between the pipes against the Islanders on Saturday.

The Bruins would doubtlessly rather have Tuukka Rask starting in this critical contest, but it was revealed that Rask is dealing with a lower-body injury. Khudobin has a 2.73 GAA and .897 save percentage in 13 contests this season.

Tuukka Rask is dealing with a lower-body injury.

Rask missed Friday's practice, but his availability for Saturday's game wasn't necessarily revealed. We got a hint that this would be coming though when Boston summoned Zane McIntyre this morning. Saturday's game against the Islanders is critical for the Bruins' playoff hopes so to be missing Rask right now is a serious blow. Anton Khudobin will be called upon to start in his place.

Bruins forward David Backes says his team simply isn't playing well enough right now.

"I think it’s not good enough from top to bottom," said forward David Backes. "I’ll be the first guy to point fingers at my chest and say I need to be better. (Thursday's 6-3 loss to Tampa) was certainly not our best when it’s that time of year [and] you need your best every night to win, no matter who you’re playing against or what the circumstances may be." The Bruins have picked a horrible time to lose four games in a row, as they're in the middle of a playoff race. If the post-season started today, the Bruins wouldn't be in it.
Mar 25 - 11:57 AM

Zane McIntyre has been called up on an emergency basis.

We'll have to wait to see who is unavailable, but Tuukka Rask did take Friday's practice off for maintenance reasons. Rask still might not be the one that's hurt, but McIntyre's promotion does make that absence seem more ominous.

The Boston Bruins have signed Emil Johansson to a three-year, entry-level deal.

Johansson's contract will begin with the 2017-18 campaign. In the meantime he's joining AHL Providence on a PTO. He had seven goals and 17 points in 49 Swedish league games this season. Boston selected him with the 206th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Ryan Fitzgerald has agreed to a two-year, entry-level contract with the Boston Bruins.

Fitzgerald's contract will start in 2017-18, but he'll join the AHL Providence Bruins now on an amateur tryout agreement. He scored 12 goals and 31 points in 34 games with Boston College this season. The Bruins took him in the fourth round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Tim Schaller (lower body) was on the ice before the Bruins' practice.

Schaller has missed Boston's last seven games. He has seven goals and 14 points in 58 contests this season.
Mar 24 - 1:25 PM

Frank Vatrano hasn't scored a goal in 12 straight games.

He has contributed just two assists during that span and he hasn't picked up a point in the past five contests. Vatrano has 10 goals and 18 points in 40 appearances with the Boston this season.
Mar 24 - 8:19 AM

David Pastrnak netted his 32nd goal of the season.

He opened the scoring 1:33 into the second period in a 6-3 loss to Tampa Bay. The 20-year-old forward has amassed 64 points in 67 games.
Mar 24 - 8:16 AM

Tuukka Rask allowed five goals on 28 shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lighting.

This was a crucial game for the Bruins and they ended up falling flat on their faces. They held a lead on three different occasions tonight, but eventually fell apart. Two of the five goals Rask allowed were scored while his team was shorthanded. Rask and the Bruins have now dropped four consecutive games. He has a 33-20-4 record with a 2.38 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage.
Mar 23 - 10:13 PM

Riley Nash scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Nash picked up the primary assist on Zdeno Chara's shorthanded goal in the second period before scoring the go-ahead goal (3-2) later on in the frame. The goal put an end to his 10-game goalless drought. Nash has five goals and eight assists in 73 games. He shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar.
Mar 23 - 10:05 PM

John-Michael Liles, Joe Morrow and Jimmy Hayes will each be scratched against the Lightning on Thursday.

Liles has posted just five points with 37 blocks in 31 games this season. While Morrow has but a point in 17 games. Hayes meanwhile has five points with 71 hits in 54 games thus far.
