Tuukka Rask allowed four goals on 20 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 OT loss to the Washington Capitals.

Rask has been fantastic this season, but this was far from his best outing of the year. The Capitals led 3-0 in the second period, but the Bruins got three unanswered goals from Dominic Moore, David Pastrnak and Colin Miller to tie the game. In overtime, it was Nicklas Backstrom that gave the Caps the win. Rask now has a 14-4-2 record with a 1.79 goals-against-average and a .933 save percentage.

David Pastrnak scored a goal in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals.

The Bruins found themselves down 3-0 in the second period, but battled back to tie the game at three. Dominic Moore scored their first goal followed by Pastrnak and Colin Miller. Pastrnak continues to impress this season. He now has 16 goals and 22 points in 22 games. He's on pace to score 56 goals this season, but the odds of him hitting that number are slim. Still, he's been excellent. He's a must-start in all fantasy leagues.

Joe Morrow is projected to spend Wednesday's game in the press box.

It will be Morrow's second straight contest in the press box. He has an assist in 11 games this season.
Dec 7 - 7:47 PM

Tuukka Rask is expected to start Wednesday against Washington.

He was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate. Boston plays again on Thursday against Colorado, which could be a chance to get Anton Khudobin into a game after he played well in his last two starts.
Dec 7 - 5:07 PM

Noel Acciari has been sent to AHL Providence.

He was on injured reserve with a lower-body injury, but before that he skated in 12 games with the Bruins and recorded two assists. Acciari will get back into game shape in the minors and wait for another NHL opportunity.

Frank Vatrano (foot) joined his teammates for Tuesday's practice.

"Any time a guy joins a team for practice, even with the red jersey ... it's good to see, a step in the right direction for Frank," coach Claude Julien said. "That's the best way for him right now to get up to the pace of your game, because it's going to take a while." He could be available later this month if his recovery goes well.
Dec 7 - 9:22 AM

Jimmy Hayes got back in the lineup Monday night.

However, he was limited to just 7:33 of ice time. Hayes posted two shots, two hits and two penalty minutes. He has one goal and no assists in 23 appearances this year.
Dec 6 - 9:29 AM

Zdeno Chara logged 23:31 of ice time in his first game back from a lower-body ailment.

He was credited with three hits, two blocks and a minus-1 rating. "I felt pretty good for the first game back," Chara said. "It was a good game to come back. Obviously, Florida is a very good skating team, and it is always challenging to play them. But I had no issues, and it felt good to be back, and obviously it was a big win." He was reunited with rookie defender Brandon Carlo in Boston's 4-3 OT win over Florida.
Dec 6 - 9:26 AM

David Krejci registered a pair of assists in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over Florida.

He had a helper on Tim Schaller's icebreaker in the first period and he set up David Pastrnak's game winner in the extra session. After a sluggish start to the season, Krejci has produced three goals and nine assists in the last 13 contests.
Dec 6 - 9:20 AM

Tuukka Rask saved 27 of 30 shots in a 4-3 overtime victory over the Florida Panthers Monday night.

Dec 5 - 10:09 PM

David Pastrnak scored two goals, including the game winner, in Boston's 4-3 overtime win over Florida Monday night.

Pastrnak now has 15 goals in just 21 contests this season. He's already matched his 2015-16 goal total, which he recorded over 51 games. David Backes and Tim Schaller accounted for the Bruins other two markers. David Krejci assisted on two of the Bruins' four markers.
Dec 5 - 10:05 PM

Matt Beleskey will miss six weeks because of a knee injury.

Beleskey was injured in Saturday's game against the Sabres and he didn't play in tonight's game against Florida. Expect him to return in mid-January. The Bruins forward has two goals and three assists in 24 games this season.
Dec 5 - 9:57 PM

Dec 5 - 6:49 PM

Tuukka Rask will probably get the nod on Monday.
