The Game Notes:
- NYR has been riding high as one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference, 2nd in the entire conference with an 8-3-0 start.
- The last time the Bruins met the Rangers was a bit of a beatdown, but that wasn't with Rask. Rask has been VERY good this year, 6-0-0 in starts, with a .951 SV%, and currently third among starters in the NHL.
- Bratrice + Pasta remains a beautiful thing to behold. On Thursday every player on the line contributed to a goal, and Pasta continues his goal-scoring dominance. He leads the team with 6, and Brad Marchand leads the team in points with 12.
- Ryan Spooner tallied again on the Power play against TBL. Both of his goals this year came on the power play.
- The secondary scoring still might need to get better at some point. Several players without goals, many of whom paid quite a bit of money
- David Backes. Coming back maybe? Stay tuned...
- As previously discussed, the Bruins really should stop taking penalties.
