Anders Bjork has undergone shoulder surgery.

Bjork will need six months to recover, which means he's done for the 2017-18 campaign, but should be fine for training camp. He had four goals and 12 points in 30 games in his rookie season.

Riley Nash has generated three goals and three assists in the past seven games.

Nash has been seeing the majority of his playing time alongside David Backes and Danton Heinen on the third line during that stretch. He has 10 goals and a career-high 28 points through 57 contests.

Nick Holden did not suit up in Tuesday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Holden was acquired from the Rangers on Tuesday, but he didn't make to Edmonton in time for the game. He has three goals and 12 points in 55 games this season. He'll make the Bruins defense deeper, but he won't have any fantasy value.

The Boston Bruins showed incredible resilience in their 3-2 comeback win over the Edmonton Oilers.

"We have a will to win," coach Bruce Cassidy said. "There are 82 of these and sometimes you just don't have it, but I think our group is pretty good at pushing right to the end. It would have been easy for us to say it was our third game in four nights and we were playing back-to-back games, and maybe it is not our night after the frustration early on of not being able to finish and (Oilers goalie Cam Talbot) being really good, but we stuck with it." The Bruins have to be considered a legitimate Stanley Cup threat right now.

David Krejci scored the game-winning goal with 64 seconds remaining in regulation in Tuesday's 3-2 win at Edmonton.

Krejci posted three shots on goal with a hit over his 17:23 of ice time while winning eight of his 13 faceoff attempts. The game-winning tally was his first since Oct. 19, and it was the first point after six scoreless outings dating back to Feb. 6. It has been rough for Krejci, who has just 11 goals and 28 points. He is struggling, but just one season removed from 54 points. The buy-low window is wide open, as he is just 31 and still capable of producing big numbers.
Feb 21 - 1:21 AM

Matthew Grzelcyk bagged his second goal of the season in a 3-2 victory on Tuesday at Edmonton.

Grzelcyk netted the game-tying goal midway through the final period, and eventually David Krejci struck with 64 seconds remaining in regulation to propel the team to a win. The rearguard Grzelcyk also added a plus-1 rating and hit over 16:26 of ice time. He has come alive with a goal and five points over his past seven games, but he remains useful only in deeper fantasy pools unless he keeps up the pace for a longer period.
Feb 21 - 1:13 AM

Noel Acciari scored a score while dishing out two hits in 13:06 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 win at Edmonton.

Acciari also won his only faceoff attempt, but the big news was his first goal in five games since coming off the injured reserve list. Despite the lamp lighting on Tuesday, he is only worth fantasy consideration in the deepest of pools at the moment.
Feb 21 - 1:02 AM

Anton Khudobin allowed just two goals on 20 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 victory at Edmonton.

Khudobin was rarely tested, as the Oilers squeezed off just three shots in the opening period. One of the shots went in after an unassisted Ryan Strome goal with 1:31, perhaps catching Khudobin napping after a lack of work. He gave up a Jujhar Khaira marker midway through a busier 11-shot second, and he stopped all six shots he faced in the third. When he starts Khudobin is a solid fantasy option in pools allowing daily transactions, and he can be an effective mid-tier DFS option as well.
Feb 21 - 12:59 AM

Paul Postma will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

This has been a common occurrence this season. He has no goals, one assist and a minus-2 rating in 12 games. Nick Holden, who was acquired from the Rangers today, will also miss the game, but that isn't a surprise.

Boston has acquired Nick Holden from the New York Rangers in exchange for Rob O'Gara and a 2018 third-round pick.

Holden can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. He has three goals and 12 points in 55 games this campaign. Holden will provide the Bruins with some additional depth on the back end. He posted career highs in 2016-17 with 11 goals and 34 points in 80 contests.
Feb 20 - 12:30 PM

Brad Marchand potted the game-winning goal in overtime Monday in a 2-1 victory over Calgary.

Marchand scored on breakaway late in the extra session for his 22nd marker of the season. His eight-game point streak came to an end this past Saturday, but as expected he didn't stay off the scoresheet for very long. Marchand has amassed 55 points in 44 games this campaign.
Feb 20 - 9:47 AM

Tuukka Rask blocked 28 shots in a 2-1 overtime win over Calgary on Monday.

Rask rebounded nicely after he was pulled against Vancouver on Saturday. He has two wins in his last four starts and both came against the Flames. Rask has improved his record to 24-10-4 this season.
Feb 19 - 6:49 PM

David Pastrnak netted his 22nd goal of the season Monday against Calgary in a 2-1 overtime win.

Pastrnak opened the scoring in the first period for Boston's only regulation marker of the contest. Patrice Bergeron picked up the only assist. Pastrnak didn't have a point in his previous four outings following a 10-game point streak. Brad Marchand won the game in overtime with a nice move on a breakaway with 1:24 left until a shootout.
Feb 19 - 6:44 PM

Kevan Miller (upper body) will be a game-time decision Monday afternoon.

Miller practiced Sunday without limitations and he's very close to getting back into the lineup. If he isn't ready to return against Calgary then he could be back on Tuesday night versus Edmonton.
Feb 19 - 10:18 AM

Anton Khudobin will get the call on Tuesday night against Edmonton.

Coach Bruce Cassidy said that Tuukka Rask will play Monday afternoon's tilt against Calgary and Khudobin will get the second half of the back-to-back set. The Bruins backup has won three of his last four starts. Khudobin has a 12-3-4 record with a 2.34 goals-against average and .923 save percentage in 21 games this season. Adjust your lineup accordingly.
