Bruins Notes: Tuukka Rask Stellar Again In Emphatic Win Over Islanders

Boston Bruins center Tim Schaller second from left celebrates with teammates Noel Acciari, Sean Kuraly and Matt Grzelcyk, as New York Islanders goaltender Jaroslav Halak gets up during the third period of an NHL hockey game Tuesday

Josh Bailey was held without a point, ending his career-high streak at 11 games.

Following a brutal start to the season that saw Rask benched for four straight games and rank at the bottom of the league in save percentage (.897) and goals-against average (2.89), the 30-year-old netminder has orchestrated quite the turnaround over the past month.

It's enough to have pushed Rask up to sixth in save percentage (.923) and second in goals against average (2.13), which is an incredibly impressive climb given where Rask was when December began.

Bergeron put the Bruins ahead with an unusual goal 8:28 into the second.

Talks were held on how to rid this region of the scourge of terrorism, how to ensure that terrorism doesn't affect this region. The confirmation of the NSA-level engagement comes nearly two weeks after news reports said the two NSAs had met in Thailand.

Marchand got his 200th career assist on the play. And by the way, he has an 11-0-1 record in that stretch, too. The veteran joined Bergeron in the goal scoring department - one of five different Bruins to light the lamp - with his team-leading 16th of the season at 9:04 of the third period to give Boston a 3-1 lead. The Bruins are 16-3-2 since November 16, and only Vegas has more points than Boston during that span.

After receiving First Star of the Week honors last week, Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask was named First Star for the Month of December by the National Hockey League today. Riley Nash won the faceoff and the puck went right to Heninen, who fired the puck past Halak at 8:17.

Eberle evened the score just over a minute later after he forced a turnover in front of the net and slid the puck past the extended leg of Rask for his 14th. The Bruins scratched forwards Anders Bjork and Paul Postma and defenseman Frank Vatrano.
