David Krejci is on a three-game point streak.

Krejci has recorded at least a point in six of his last seven games. He got off to a quiet start this season with no goals and four assists in his first 11 contests, but since then he's scored 16 goals and 38 points in 51 games.
Feb 27 - 8:37 AM

Brad Marchand has 10 goals and 19 points in his last 12 games.

Marchand took a huge step forward last season when he recorded 37 goals and 61 points in 77 games and rather than regress, he's only built on that in 2017-18. He's already set a new career-high with 64 points and his shooting percentage is at 14.6, which is only a hair below his 2015-16 level. His increased offensive role hasn't led to him playing a significantly more disciplined game from a penalties perspective either as he's accumulated 52 minutes so far. He'll begin his eight-year, $49 million contract next season and if he can maintain this level of play then that will be a very good deal for the Bruins.

David Backes did a bit of everything for fantasy owners during Sunday's 6-3 win over the Stars.

He picked up his 17th assist of the season giving 29 points through 54 games. He also fought Jamie Benn in quite the thriller. Backes has four assists over his last five games.
Feb 26 - 6:11 PM

Patrice Bergeron scored twice during Sunday's 6-3 win over the Stars.

He also added an assist for a three-point effort. For the month, he has four goals and 13 points in just nine games. Which is mighty encouraging as we hurdle towards fantasy playoffs.

David Krejci picked up his third goal over his last five games during Sunday's 6-3 win over the Stars.

Feb 26 - 6:08 PM

Ryan Spooner was able to feed on the Stars to continue his scoring way in Sunday's 6-3 win.

He posted both a goal and an assist in the game, giving him two goals and five points over his last five games. He has 10 goals and 33 points in 61 games.
Feb 26 - 6:07 PM

Brad Marchand is still on fire.

He posted a goal and three points during Sunday's 6-3 win over the Stars. He has three goals and seven points over his last five games alone. Marchand is up to 27 goals and 64 points in just 62 games this season.
Feb 26 - 6:03 PM

Frank Vatrano needed just 28 games to reach the double-digit goal mark for the first time in his career.

He tallied his 10th goal of the season during Sunday's 6-3 win over the Stars. He has three goals and four points over his last five games, and 18 points overall this season.
Feb 26 - 6:01 PM

Torey Krug continued his torrid pace by collecting another trio of helpers during Sunday's 6-3 win over the Stars.

He now has points in four of his last five games, with six overall in that span. He's now up to 36 assists and 41 points in 62 games this season. He needs just four assists and three points to match the respective career highs as well.

It wasn't Tuukka Rask's best game, but it was enough.

Rask turned away 33 of 36 shots including four of five on the kill, as the Bruins beat the Stars 6-3 on Sunday. The win lifts his record to 29-14-4 with a 2.30 GAA and .912 save percentage for the year.
Feb 26 - 5:56 PM

Matt Beleskey, Joe Morrow and Colin Miller will each be scratched against the Stars on Sunday.

Confirming an earlier note, Tuukka Rask will indeed be in net on Sunday against the Stars.

He comes in sporting a very fine 28-14-4 record with a 2.28 GAA and a .912 save percentage.

The Bruins are starting games better under coach Bruce Cassidy.

The Bruins have scored the first goal of the game in their last four contests and have notched the first marker in five of the six games they have played under new head coach Cassidy. "We’re on time when the puck drops for sure in terms of our play," Cassidy said. "We’re not getting destroyed in the first period. We’ve had good jump, good energy. Sometimes that’s cyclical, whether you score first or not, but if we generate more chances than they do then the odds go in our favor. "We’re trying to be ready when the puck drops in terms of attacking and putting teams on their heels," said Cassidy. Well it's working. The Bruins are right back in the middle of the playoff hunt.

Despite not putting up big numbers yet, Peter Cehlarik continues to impress the Boston coaching staff with his play on the Bruins' second line.

Cehlarik had a poor game against Anaheim early last week but rebounded with a strong game against the Kings and seems to be poised beyond his NHL experience. "I liked his game (in LA)," said Bruins' coach Bruce Cassidy. "A young player sometimes gets in his own way if it doesn’t go well. We talked about it, that it’s a new game and he’s going to have his ups and downs. I thought he responded very well." Cehlarik will continue to play alongside David Krejci and David Pastrnak and is worth picking up in deep pools.
Feb 26 - 8:30 AM

Look for Tuukka Rask to get the start Sunday afternoon against Dallas.

Rask is coming off an uninspiring 5-3 loss to Anaheim in which he allowed four goals on 24 shots. That said, he still sports a very fine 28-14-4 record with a 2.28 goals against average and a .912 save percentage. The game is a matinee starting at 12:30 pm ET, so make sure Rask is active early if you want him in your lineup.
