There was much gNashing of teeth as Tuukka Rask and the Merlot Line stole one for the Bruins.

<p><b>Okay, The Bruins had no business beating the Rangers last night.  We'll take it anyway! </b></p>


<li> Cliff notes on last night's game. [<a href="">NewEnglandHockeyJournal</a>]</li>

<li> Tuukka Rask made a career record 43 saves, including stuffing Chris Kreider on a penalty shot. Shawn Thornton took Reilly Smith's advice, and Daniel Paille kept it simple on a shorthanded breakaway. [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Last season, his numbers were there, but "Rask never seemed to pass the eye test of a Vezina goalie." How do you like him now? [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> Dennis Seidenberg suffered a lower body injury during his first shift and did not return. Not good news for the Bruins' defensive corps, as Adam McQuaid remains out as well. Watch for a callup from Providence. [<a href=""></a>]</li>

<li> Torey Krug has generated buzz in the Calder race. [<a href="">NHL</a>]</li>

<li> But it is not likely that a trip to Sochi is in Krug's future. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> Hindsight check- interesting pregame statistics were borne out, the Rangers are unique in having their destiny tied to scoring the first goal. The Bruins defensemen have scored a near league leading 25% of the team's goals. Krug is tied for second in the league in D-man goals at 6. Congratulations to Patrice Bergeron, who played his 600th game. [<a href="">ProHockeyTalk</a>]</li>

<li> Digging deeper, a comparison of Rask to Carey Price that examines the effects of the quality of shots faced, not just the quantity. Great graphics! [<a href="">Sportsnet</a>]</li>

<li> The Sabres are courting Bruins assistant GM Jim Benning as a replacement for Darcy Regier. [<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>


<p><b> Elsewhere around the rink: </b></p>


<li> Score one for P.K. Subban, who simply did what any of us would have done to "Changed Man" Matt Cooke, given the chance. [<a href="">SBNation</a>]</li>

<li> Twitter fight! The Oilers (check out their MOvember avatar) rib the Canucks, and receive a jab in return. [<a href="">SBNation</a>]</li>

<li> The chippy Winnipeg Jets are not taking that slight suffered at the hands of a rude Blackhawks fan sitting down, nooooo! They're going to  throw a #HelmetPardy! [<a href="">PuckDaddy</a>]</li>

<li> Tim Thomas has a shot at a spot in Sochi, but that might not be the best news for Team USA. [<a href="">TheSportingNews</a>]</li>
