Anton Khudobin stopped 36 of 37 shots in a 3-1 win over the San Jose Sharks.

With Khudobin's excellent play combined with Rask's struggles, questions are beginning to circulate in Boston on who should start Wednesday's game against the New Jersey Devils. Khudobin has earned it based on merit. The 31-year-old netminder has won back-to-back starts while just allowing one goal in each contest. His record sits at 5-0-2 with a 2.17 goals against average and .935 save percentage.

Jake DeBrusk scored a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win over the San Jose Sharks.

Since being a healthy scratch last Saturday against the Leafs, DeBrusk has responded with three points in three games. That pace won't hold up but the 21-year-old forward will likely finish the season with 15+ goals and 30+ points. He's a name to keep an eye on in the future.
Nov 19 - 1:22 AM

Torey Krug (upper body) will not be available for Saturday's game.

It will be Krug's second straight game on the sidelines. He has three goals and 13 points in 17 contests in 2017-18.

Tuukka Rask understands why the Bruins have decided to go back to backup goalie Anton Khudobin on Saturday.

Khudobin was terrific is a win over Los Angeles in Boston's last game. The team has decided to give Khudobin a second straight starts instead of going back to Rask. "Absolutely, I would have done the same thing if I was the coach," said Rask. "Dobie played a heck of a game and his results have been there. I haven’t been able to get wins the past three starts, so it’s understandable. Only thing I can do is practice hard, keep working hard and the results will follow." Rask will eventually get the number one job back, but his fantasy owners can't be happy about this.

Anton Khudobin will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Khudobin earned a second straight start by stopping 27 shots in a 2-1 win over Los Angeles on Thursday. He's 4-0-2 with a 2.35 GAA and .928 save percentage in seven games this season.
Nov 17 - 5:57 PM

Torey Krug is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

Krug was forced to leave Wednesday's game against Anaheim and wasn't available to play Thursday night. "He didn't respond as well we liked today, so he'll be out and we'll see where he is," said coach Bruce Cassidy.
Nov 17 - 9:21 AM

David Krejci "felt pretty good" Thursday night in his first game since Oct. 19.

Krejci missed 11 games with an upper-body injury, which was believed to be a back issue. He picked up one goal and five assists in six games prior to the injury. It may take him a few more contests to get back into a groove.
Nov 17 - 9:18 AM

Anders Bjork has been placed on injured reserve.

Bjork is retroactive to Nov. 11 when he was injured against Toronto. He won't make the trip to San Jose for Saturday's contest. Bjork has already missed two games during Boston's road trip.
Nov 17 - 9:12 AM

Brad Marchand (undisclosed) won't make the trip to San Jose, according to coach Bruce Cassidy.

Marchand has already missed the first two games of Boston's road trip. He's expected to sit out another Saturday versus the Sharks after he was placed on injured reserve Thursday. Marchand is retroactive to Nov. 11.
Nov 17 - 9:05 AM

Charlie McAvoy snapped an eight-game scoring drought Thursday night.

McAvoy opened the scoring in a 2-1 win over Los Angeles. He also had four hits and four blocks in 27:53 of ice time. The rookie blueliner has nine points in 18 games this season.
Nov 17 - 8:56 AM

Zdeno Chara scored the game winner Thursday night versus Los Angeles.

Chara fired the puck into the net just as a penalty to Kings center Anze Kopitar expired. He gave the Bruins a 2-1 lead at the 13:16 mark of the second period and that was the final goal of the contest. It was Chara's second goal of the season and his sixth point through 18 games.
Nov 17 - 8:53 AM

Anton Khudobin played well in Thursday's 2-1 win over Los Angeles.

Khudobin stopped 27 shots to lift his record to 4-0-2 on the year. He helped end Boston's season-long four-game (0-3-1) losing streak. Khudobin has a 2.35 goals-against average and a .928 save percentage.
Nov 17 - 8:46 AM

David Krejci (back) was activated from the IL on Thursday November 16.

Krejci didn't record a point or a shot, but he did log 18:02 minutes of playing time in his return. He was sidelined for nearly a month due to his back problem.
Nov 17 - 2:54 AM

Torey Krug (undisclosed) is doubtful for Thursday's game.

Krug left late into Wednesday's contest and didn't return. That said, the specifics and severity of Krug's condition haven't been shared. If he can't play then that will obviously be a big blow to the Bruins as he has 11 points in 16 games while averaging 21:11 minutes per contest.
Nov 16 - 5:31 PM

Anton Khudobin is expected to get the nod Thursday against Los Angeles.

Tuukka Rask was in the cage for Wednesday's 4-2 loss to Anaheim and he's scheduled to get the night off Thursday. Khudobin has posted 3-0-2 record with a 2.60 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage in six appearances.
