Sorry for the lack of preview and open thread for today's game. After a weekend of booze-filled Halloween festivities, I didn't get around to writing anything this morning. For the record, my Jack Edwards costume was a big hit this weekend. OK, on to the recap...
The Bruins tested Rangers' netminder Henrik Lundqvist all game, but the B's couldn't crack "King Henrik" (29 saves), as he collected his first shutout of the season.
Marian Gaborik scored the game's lone goal on a one-timer from the slot off of a feed from Vaclav Prospal at 15:51 of the second period.
- The Bruins continued their season-long trend of alternating between wins and losses.
- The Bruins power play struggled again today going 0 for 5 in 9:44 of power play time.
- Byron Bitz (groin injury) missed today's game and is considered day-to-day.
- The Bruins recorded 41 hits today.
- Tim Thomas turned aside 22 shots
- The B's will be back in action on Tuesday night when they travel to Detroit to take on the Red Wings.
