Boston has acquired Nick Holden from the New York Rangers in exchange for Rob O'Gara and a 2018 third-round pick.

Holden can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. He has three goals and 12 points in 55 games this campaign. Holden will provide the Bruins with some additional depth on the back end. He posted career highs in 2016-17 with 11 goals and 34 points in 80 contests.

Brad Marchand potted the game-winning goal in overtime Monday in a 2-1 victory over Calgary.

Marchand scored on breakaway late in the extra session for his 22nd marker of the season. His eight-game point streak came to an end this past Saturday, but as expected he didn't stay off the scoresheet for very long. Marchand has amassed 55 points in 44 games this campaign.

Tuukka Rask blocked 28 shots in a 2-1 overtime win over Calgary on Monday.

Rask rebounded nicely after he was pulled against Vancouver on Saturday. He has two wins in his last four starts and both came against the Flames. Rask has improved his record to 24-10-4 this season.
Feb 19 - 6:49 PM

David Pastrnak netted his 22nd goal of the season Monday against Calgary in a 2-1 overtime win.

Pastrnak opened the scoring in the first period for Boston's only regulation marker of the contest. Patrice Bergeron picked up the only assist. Pastrnak didn't have a point in his previous four outings following a 10-game point streak. Brad Marchand won the game in overtime with a nice move on a breakaway with 1:24 left until a shootout.
Feb 19 - 6:44 PM

Kevan Miller (upper body) will be a game-time decision Monday afternoon.

Miller practiced Sunday without limitations and he's very close to getting back into the lineup. If he isn't ready to return against Calgary then he could be back on Tuesday night versus Edmonton.
Feb 19 - 10:18 AM

Anton Khudobin will get the call on Tuesday night against Edmonton.

Coach Bruce Cassidy said that Tuukka Rask will play Monday afternoon's tilt against Calgary and Khudobin will get the second half of the back-to-back set. The Bruins backup has won three of his last four starts. Khudobin has a 12-3-4 record with a 2.34 goals-against average and .923 save percentage in 21 games this season. Adjust your lineup accordingly.

Tuukka Rask will get the nod Monday against Calgary.

Coach Bruce Cassidy intends to give Anton Khudobin the start in Edmonton on Tuesday night. Rask will look to bounce back after he permitted four goals on eight shots to Vancouver in a 6-1 loss this past Saturday. He only played the first period that contest. Rask has been superb this season with a 23-10-4 record, a 2.20 GAA and a .921 save percentage through 38 appearances.
Feb 19 - 9:49 AM

Tim Schaller scored a goal and had five shots in a 6-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.

Schaller has points in three straight games for Boston, and has four points in his last five outings. Schaller's goal gives him 10 on the season and 17 points in 56 games.
Feb 18 - 1:20 AM

Tuukka Rask allowed four goals on just eight shots in a 6-1 loss to Vancouver on Saturday night.

Rask was pulled after only 20 minutes in his shortest start of the season. He has been excellent this season and should be able to bounce back. Anton Khudobin stopped 13 of 15 shots in relief. Rask's record falls to 23-10-4 with a 2.20 GAA and a .921 save percentage.
Feb 18 - 1:20 AM

Tuukka Rask is expected to get the start in Saturday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

The Bruins netminder has won nine of his last 10 games. He has a 23-9-4 record with a 2.11 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage this season.

The New York Rangers reportedly want Jake DeBrusk included in a potential trade for Ryan McDonagh.

DeBrusk has a bright future ahead of him, but you have to pay through the nose if you want to acquire a defenseman like McDonagh. The Bruins forward has 11 goals and 29 points in 51 games this season. Boston GM Doug Sweeney has a lot of young assets at his disposal, but trading DeBrusk would be a risky proposition.
Feb 17 - 10:39 AM

Jordan Szwarz has been summoned by the Boston Bruins.

Szwarz has three assists in 10 games with Boston in 2017-18. At the AHL level he's scored 15 goals and 35 points in 34 AHL contests.
Feb 16 - 1:14 PM

Anders Bjork (upper body) won't travel with Boston on the road.

Bjork could be out for the team's three-game road swing in Western Canada. He hasn't been in the lineup since Jan. 30 due to an upper-body injury.
Feb 16 - 9:08 AM

Frank Vatrano (lower body) will not go on Boston's upcoming road trip.

The Bruins play three games in four nights in Western Canada, starting Saturday at Vancouver. Vatrano has been sidelined since Feb. 6 because of a lower-body injury.
Feb 16 - 9:04 AM

Kevan Miller (upper body) is unlikely to play against the Canucks on Saturday.

That would be Miller's seventh straight game on the sidelines. He will probably at least travel with the Bruins to Vancouver ahead of the game though.
