Charlie McAvoy registered two assists in Boston's 5-4 overtime loss to Buffalo.

McAvoy is on a four-game point streak. That hot streak has propelled him to a goal and seven points in seven contests this season. Among rookie defensemen he's third in the scoring race behind Will Butcher and Mikhail Sergachev, but that's partially because Butcher and Sergachev have each participated in two more games than McAvoy. Either way, this has been a superb start for McAvoy, who was also a dominate force with Boston University last season.

Anton Khudobin allowed five goals on 42 shots in Saturday's 5-4 OT loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

The Bruins held 3-0 and 4-1 leads in the second period, but they allowed that advantage to evaporate against one of the worst teams in the league. Khudobin now has a 2-0-1 record with a 2.98 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage this season. He'll continue to get the majority of the starts while Tuukka Rask is recovering from his injury.

Brad Marchand scored a pair of goals in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

Marchand's first-period goal extended Boston's lead to 2-0 at the time, while his goal in the middle frame made it 3-0 for the Bruins. Unfortunately for Boston, they let the lead slip away and eventually lost on a Ryan O'Reilly goal in overtime. Marchand finished tonight's game with five shots on goal in 21:27 of ice time. Marchand has now picked up at least one point in five straight games (he has 10 points during that stretch). Marchand is up to six goals and 11 points in seven games this season.

Updating a previous item, David Krejci (upper body) won't play against the Buffalo Sabres.

Krejci took part in the pregame warmup, but he will be a late scratch. He apparently isn't feeling well enough to play, so get him out of your lineups before puck drop.
Oct 21 - 7:02 PM

Kevan Miller isn't out warming up with his teammates prior to puck drop, indicating he won't dress tonight against the Sabres.

Rob O'Gara was called up on an emergency basis for precisely this situation. Miller has zero points in six games and should not be owned in any fantasy formats. It is suspected that he injured his hand while landing a few solid shots to Derek Dorsett's helmet during their fight on Thursday.

David Krejci is out warming up with his teammates prior to puck drop tonight.

This is an indication that Krejci will be able to suit up tonight against the Sabres. Be sure to get him into your lineups but check back here just prior to puck drop to make sure there aren't any surprising twists. He has six points in six games this season.
Oct 21 - 6:37 PM

Anton Khudobin will start for the Bruins against Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.

The 31-year old will put his 2-0-0 record on the line against the Sabres. He'll be getting much more time now that Tuukka Rask is on the shelf with a concussion, but for how long? If you find yourself having to use Khudobin in net, his stats aren't bad. He's got a 2.18 goals-against-average, a .928 save percentage, and the Bruins have won six straight against the Buffalo Sabres.

The Boston Bruins have recalled Rob O'Gara from the AHL on Saturday.

O'Gara is a former 5th round pick with three career NHL games under his belt. He has no fantasy upside moving forward.
Oct 21 - 12:27 PM

Adam McQuaid suffered a broken right fibula during Thursday's game.

McQuaid has surgery scheduled for Monday to address the injury. He will be sidelined for about eight weeks as a result, which puts his projected return in the middle of December. He has an assist in six games this season.

Kenny Agostino contributed an assist in Boston's 6-3 win against Vancouver on Thursday night.

Agostino logged 16:08 of ice time in his season debut after he was called up from the minors. He also saw 7:22 of power-play action, while skating on the second unit.

David Pastrnak generated two points in Boston's 6-3 win against Vancouver on Thursday night.

Pastrnak registered a goal and an assist during power plays for the Bruins. Boston went 4-for-8 on the man advantage in the contest. Pastrnak has found the back of the net in three straight games and he has added two helpers over that span.

Coach Bruce Cassidy doesn't believe that David Krejci's upper-body injury is a long-term issue.

"He wasn't feeling terrific today," Cassidy said. "Then I think there was a cross-check there. He tried it. Couldn't continue. I think he had some spasms. But I don't think there's anything long-term there at all." He wasn't able to play in the third period. Krejci had a one goal and one assist in 8:21 of ice time prior to his exit.
Oct 20 - 8:39 AM

Brad Marchand notched one goal and two assists in Boston's 6-3 victory versus Vancouver on Thursday.

The top line of Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and Anders Bjork combined for four goals and 10 points in the contest. Marchand wasn't struggling offensively without Bergeron for the first five games of the year, but now that Boston's top center is back Marchand could explode offensively.
Oct 20 - 8:35 AM

Anders Bjork produced two goals and one assist on Thursday night.

Bjork scored his second and third goals of the season during the first period of Boston's 6-3 win over Vancouver. The game featured the return of top center Patrice Bergeron, who skated alongside Bjork and Brad Marchand. "[The first line] is something we stuck with in training camp and wanted to see how it would play out," said coach Bruce Cassidy. "A number of different things go into it. One of them is Bjork gets to play with two world-class players." Bjork may settle into an offensive rhythm now that Bergeron is back.
Oct 20 - 8:21 AM

Adam McQuaid (lower body) was fine to play on Thursday night.

McQuaid registered four blocks in 13:57 of ice time. He missed some practice time this week after he was struck in the leg by a shot on Sunday night, but he was ready to play against Vancouver.
