|Tuukka Rask expected to start for Bruins vs. Maple Leafs||01.03.11 at 1:09 pm ET|
According to reports out of Toronto, Tuukka Rask was the first Bruins goaltender off the ice at their morning skate, suggesting the 23-year-old will be the B’s starting goalie when they take on the Maple Leafs.
Rask made his 10th start of the season on Saturday, allowing three goals to the Sabres on 16 shots in the first period before getting pulled. This technically marks the first time this season that Rask has started two games in a row. Tim Thomas has played in the last eight games, seven of which he started.
Rask is 2-7-1 this season.
|After pulling Tuukka Rask, Bruins trail Sabres, 5-4||01.01.11 at 9:05 pm ET|
So much for Tuukka Time. Claude Julien apparently saw enough from the 23-year-old in the first to cut Tim Thomas‘ day off short. Thomas allowed a pair of goals in the second period, and the Bruins now trail, 5-4, entering the third period.
Drew Stafford scored his second goal of the game and fifth goal vs. the B’s this year when he beat Thomas at 6:17. With the Sabres on the power play at 17:43, Jason Pomonville also scored his second of the night as he sent a shot wide that was redirected by Dennis Seidenberg’s skate and past Thomas.
The Bruins actually had more shots on goal in the second (13) than they did in the first period. Should the Bruins fail to come back in the third period, it will be their first regulation loss of their current road trip.
|Bruins, Thrashers tied following goals from Tobias Enstrom and Patrice Bergeron||12.30.10 at 7:45 pm ET|
With the Thrashers on an early power play thanks to a Marc Savard slashing call, Enstrom beat Thomas through the legs from the point. Dustin Byfuglien picked up an assist on the play, his sixth point vs. the B’s this season.
Bergeron picked up an unassisted tally when he beat Ondrej Pavelec on a weak back-hander. It was Bergeron’s eighth goal of the season.
The Bruins and Thrashers each had 11 shots on net, with Blake Wheeler contributing three for the B’s.
For the second straight game, Nathan Horton had less than four minutes of ice time in the first period. He played 3:58.
|Fans who hopped glass banned from Garden||12.21.10 at 5:40 pm ET|
The two fans who jumped on the ice during Saturday’s Bruins game against the Capitals have been ordered to stay away from TD Garden, according to the Associated Press.
New Hampshire residents John Parker, 20, and his brother Matt, 17, were believed to be drunk when they hopped over the glass and ran on the ice during a stoppage in play during the 3-2 Bruins win. After a very brief delay, they were escorted from the ice. The two Bow natives pled not guilty disturbing a public assembly.
|Bruins send Caron to Providence||12.06.10 at 4:42 pm ET|

In his first pro season, the forward made the Bruins roster out of training camp. The 20-year-old has appeared in 20 games for the B’s, recording three goals and four assists. Caron was a healthy scratch for the last two games.
The Sayabec, Quebec native was selected by the Bruins in the first round (25th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
