Tuukka Rask stopped 30 of 31 shots in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over Carolina.

Rask was solid throughout the contest and he was named the game's first star for his effort. The 28-year-old won back-to-back starts this weekend and he allowed a total of one goal in both games against the Rangers and Hurricanes. Rask's record improves to 31-19-12, and he has a 2.30 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage this season. His overall body of work hasn't been overly impressive throughout the season.

David Pastrnak scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over Carolina.

Pastrnak picked up the primary assist on Ryan Spooner's first period goal. He scored the game-winner in overtime to give the B's two huge points in the standings. The 18-year-old has struggled with consistency in his first NHL season but that's normal for someone his age. Pastrnak has 10 goals and 25 points in 40 games in 2014-15. The future is looking extremely bright for Boston's young forward.

Daniel Paille was scratched from Sunday's tilt with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Paille has had a nice season for himself with 13 points, 14 blocks, and 77 hits through 71 games this season. That may not quite be fantasy-worthy, but it's pretty good in real life for the veteran fourth line winger.

Tuukka Rask will get start the start versus the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday evening.

After leaving just 10 seconds into the second period of Saturday's tilt with the NY Rangers due to dehydration, Rask will return to the crease to help the Bruins maintain their slim playoff position. The Bruins sit just one and four points respectively over the Senators and Panthers for the final Wild Card slot. Rask for his part owns 30-19-12 record with a .922 save percentage and a 2.33 GAA through 63 games this season.

Reilly Smith scored a goal in Saturday's game against the New York Rangers.

Smith has gone through a rough stretch lately and he was even made a scratch on March 21st. He hadn't scored since February 22nd which is almost a full month between goals. The 23-year-old has 13 goals and 38 points in 74 games this season.

The Boston Bruins say goalie Tuukka Rask is fine after leaving a 4-2 win against the Rangers Saturday afternoon because he apparently was dehydrated.

Bruins coach Claude Julien said Rask is all right and would travel with the Bruins for their game against the Carolina Hurricanes Sunday. Rask could start against the Hurricanes, Julien said. "It looks like it might have been a case of dehydration, so he’s scheduled to travel with us," the coach said. "He’s scheduled to be with us and he should be fine for [Sunday]." Rask, who left 10 seconds into the second period with Boston leading 3-0, had informed the Bruins during the first intermission that he wasn’t feeling well. "Yeah, we just found out at the beginning of the second," Julien said. "He went in there and when he came off that’s why I went to him and said, ‘Are you still having those symptoms?’ He said, 'Yeah,’ so I said, ‘Well, let’s get you out of here and put [Niklas Svedberg] in,’ who did a good job by the way." Rask had 14 saves; Svedberg, 16.

Milan Lucic scored the first two goals of the Boston Bruins' 4-2 win against the New York Rangers on Saturday.

The beastly power forward now has 17 goals and 42 points on the season. This may have been a much tougher game for the Bruins if he didn't find the net twice early.
Mar 28 - 4:15 PM

It was an odd afternoon for Tuukka Rask in the Boston Bruins' 4-2 win against the New York Rangers.

Rask stopped all of the 14 shots he faced, but he left early in the second period and did not return with what's been labeled as dehydration. Niklas Svedberg played the rest of the game, but the Rangers only managed two goals, so Rask gets the win.

Boston coach Claude Julien reduced the ice time of the Milan Lucic, Ryan Spooner and David Pastrnak line in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to Anaheim.

The trio hardly played in the third period with the Bruins nursing a lead they would eventually give up. At this point it is obvious that Julien does not trust this line when it doesn't have the puck. "When you watch the game closely you see guys that are really struggling in the battles and along the walls and at that stage you decide whether to protect the lead. They shortened their bench, we had to shorten ours," said Julien. With the return of David Krejci from injury don't be surprised if Julien shuffles his lines as early as Saturday afternoon against the Rangers.

Brian Ferlin was re-assigned to Providence of the AHL on Friday.

From a fantasy perspective, this news is relatively meaningless. Ferlin will return to the Baby Bruins where he had registered 16 points in 46 games.
Mar 28 - 8:27 AM

Look for Tuukka Rask to get the start against the Rangers Saturday afternoon.

It's a big game, and as is every game, for the Bruins now as they fight for a wildcard playoff spot with Ottawa, Florida and Washington. Rask is coming off a 29-save, 3-2 overtime loss to Anaheim, his fifth defeat in a row. The Rangers have been hot of late so things aren't going to get any easier for Rask Saturday afternoon.

The Boston Bruins has signed Colton Hargrove to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Hargrove has 28 points and 80 penalty minutes in 34 NCAA games with the Western Michigan University. He was selected by the Boston Bruins in the seventh round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Milan Lucic logged a season-low 10:34 of ice time in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to Anaheim.

He had a minus-2 rating and two penalty minutes in the match. Lucic has one assist in his last six games.
Mar 27 - 8:50 AM

Ryan Spooner scored a goal in Boston's 3-2 overtime loss to Anaheim on Thursday night.

He stayed at center for most of the game between Milan Lucic and David Pastrnak even though David Krejci returned to the lineup from a knee injury. Krejci played on the wing in the match with Patrice Bergeron. Spooner's goal came on the power play from Krejci and Bergeron.

Brett Connolly (finger) skated at practice on Thursday.

He suffered a dislocated right index finger when struck by a shot from teammate Dennis Seidenberg during his second practice with the Bruins, but this session was incident free. "It's encouraging," said Connolly about getting back with his teammates. "I think it's been three weeks. We're trying to transition into getting me onto the ice and getting me in shape. It's a step in the right direction." He hopes to return before the end of the regular season.
