Jaroslav Halak will be in goal for the Bruins on Thursday versus Edmonton.

The Bruins will have Tuukka Rask in the crease Wednesday at Calgary and Halak is slated to start the second half of the back-to-back situation. Halak has posted a 2-0-0 record in 2018-19 with a 1.18 goals-against average and .961 save percentage.

Tuukka Rask will get the nod on Wednesday night versus Calgary.

Rask has a 2-1-0 record this season with a 4.08 goals-against average and .881 save percentage. Coach Bruce Cassidy said that Jaroslav Halak will start Thursday in Edmonton. Adjust your lineups accordingly.
Oct 16 - 8:41 PM

Patrice Bergeron earned the first star of the week for the period ending Oct. 14.

Bergeron racked up four goals and nine points in three games. He produced his fourth career hat trick in the Bruins' home opener. Bergeron has generated four straight multi-point efforts to give him 11 points through five contests.
Oct 16 - 9:58 AM

Danton Heinen may be a healthy scratch again on Wednesday night at Calgary.

Coach Bruce Cassidy has hinted that he plans to use the same lineup as Saturday's win over Detroit, which would put Heinen in the press box for a second straight game. He has no points in four appearances this year.
Oct 16 - 9:51 AM

Coach Bruce Cassidy has liked what he's seen from Joakim Nordstrom alongside David Krejci and Jake DeBrusk.

"He's had some good looks around the net," Cassidy said. "He's found open space in the offensive zone — buried one, been robbed two or three times. So he's not just one-way defensive insurance for that line. He can contribute at the offensive end. Right now he's playing like a complete player, so we'll keep him there." Nordstrom had a plus-2 rating and four shots in Saturday's win over Detroit. He has contributed one goal in four games this season.
Oct 16 - 9:48 AM

Brandon Carlo chipped in two assists in Saturday's 8-2 victory versus Detroit.

Carlo did not have a point in Boston's first four games of the season. He was also credited with three hits and one block over 18:51 of ice time.
Oct 14 - 9:52 AM

Anders Bjork earned a goal and an assist in Saturday's 8-2 win over Detroit.

Bjork, who picked up both points in the third period, was held without a point in his previous three contests this campaign. He received a season-high 14:33 of ice time in the match.
Oct 14 - 9:49 AM

Jake DeBrusk scored a pair of goals Saturday.

DeBrusk didn't have a point in his previous four outings this season. Perhaps this will help him get going offensively. DeBrusk was productive last year with 16 goals and 43 points over 70 contests and he is expected to improve upon those numbers in 2018-19.
Oct 14 - 9:45 AM

Patrice Bergeron registered three assists in Saturday's 8-2 thumping of Detroit.

Bergeron helped set up two goals by David Pastrnak and another by defenseman Charlie McAvoy in the victory. He has racked up five goals and six assists during a four-game point streak.
Oct 14 - 9:42 AM

Tuukka Rask turned aside 32 of 34 shots in an 8-2 victory over Detroit Saturday afternoon.

The Bruins didn't necessarily need Rask to be solid on Saturday, but he was regardless. He was lit up against Washington in the season opener, but he's won two starts since then.
Oct 13 - 6:48 PM

David Pastrnak had a hat trick in an 8-2 victory over Detroit on Saturday.

Pastrnak has gotten off to an amazing start to the season with seven goals and nine points in five games. He's also on a four-game goal scoring streak. Jake DeBrusk netted his first two goals of the season. Anders Bjork had a goal and an assist. Sean Kuraly and Charlie McAvoy accounted for Boston's other two goals. Patrice Bergeron registered three assists, giving him 11 points in five games.
Oct 13 - 6:45 PM

Ryan Donato will draw back into the Bruins' lineup on Saturday.

Donato was a healthy scratch on Thursday with Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy saying the message was "to play better." The 22-year-old forward has a goal in three games this season. Danton Heinen is projected to be a healthy scratch in Donato's place.
Oct 13 - 2:02 PM

Joakim Nordstrom will continue to skate on Boston's second line.

Nordstrom is projected to start Saturday afternoon's contest against the Red Wings. Ryan Donato is likely to draw back in and switch wings and play on David Krejci's right for this game. Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy liked what he saw from Nordstrom in Thursday's 4-1 win over Edmonton in which Nordstrom scored Boston's fourth goal. Look for the composition of the Bruins' second and third lines to be fluid for a while until Nordstrom, Jake DeBrusk and Danton Heinnen establish their baseline level of play.
Oct 13 - 11:17 AM

The Bruins have activated Martin Bakos off the non-roster injured list and assigned him to Providence of the AHL.

The 28-year-old skated with Liberec Bili Tygri HC of the Czech Hockey League in 2017-18 where he registered 40 points in 52 games. Bakos may be one of the first Baby Bruins to get recalled should the big club suffer an injury.
