<p><b> Oh, what a night! The Boston Bruins sent the Carolina Hurricanes packing in a 6-2 loss. You wanted GOALS? You got 'em! </b></p>

<li> Defensemen were key, Former 'Cane Dennis Seidenberg had a career high 3 assists, Andrew Ference had a goal and assist, and Dougie Hamilton also chipped in with an assist, although there were still disturbing lapses in the Bruins' end.

<li> Tuukka Rask (40 saves) worked hard, Justin Peters was chased from goal early, Brad Marchand scored two with Jaromir Jagr 's help. Jordan Caron 's goal was his first of the year, and Chris Kelly was back. Good times!

<li> Tuukka Rask continues to be leaned on, more than he should be. [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/2013/04/bruins_must_lend_tuukka_rask_a_hand">BostonHerald</a>]</li>
