BRUINS 2, RANGERS 1
The B's kicked off their preseason with a 2-1 win over the Rangers in Madison Square Garden last night. Tuuka Rask got the start in net and stopped 31 of 32 shots. Zach Hammil and Max Sauve scored goals for the Bruins. Both scores were on the power play. Milan Lucic and Johnny Boychuk had assists.
Matt Hunwick, who's 08-09 season ended with a ruptured spleen, led the Bruins in ice time with 22:24.
Tuuka Rask playing well is excellent news. Tim Thomas is certainly an elite goalie in the NHL, but he does need 20+ games off, or at least he's needed that in the past.
The Bruins play tonight in Toronto, and I believe the game is on NHL Network. And you might have this channel without even knowing it.
