Bruins goalie Rask earns tribute in insect form: report

Tuesday, 02.24.2015 / 10:35 AM / News

Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask already has reached hockey immortality with his name being engraved on the Stanley Cup.

Now he's carved his name into the pantheon of a whole other realm.

A new species of wasp, discovered in the Teita Hills of Kenya, has been named Thaumatodryinus tuukkaraski, in honor of Rask, according to the Boston Globe. The finding will be published in the April edition of the scientific journal "Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae."

"This species is named after the acrobatic goaltender for the Finnish National ice hockey team and the Boston Bruins, whose glove hand is as tenacious as the raptorial fore tarsus of this dryinid species," the authors wrote in the paper.

Bruins center Krejci out 4-6 weeks with knee injury

Monday, 02.23.2015 / 6:28 PM / News

Boston Bruins center David Krejci will miss 4-6 weeks with a partially torn MCL in his left knee, the Bruins announced Monday.

Krejci was injured in the second period of a 5-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues last Friday while checking Alexander Steen.

"It's a big loss when you lose a player of his caliber," linemate Milan Lucic told the Boston Globe on Saturday. "He's been an important player for us for the last number of years. He's definitely one of those guys that's hard to replace. At the end of the day, you still have a job to do. You still have to do it well. Just because one guy's out of the lineup, [it] can't change the whole focus of the team, the psyche of the team, or the psyche of one player as a linemate. That just means you have to find new chemistry with guys, work a little harder to find that, and hope that it comes."

VOORHEES, N.J. -- Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen said Monday that he could make his season debut Saturday against the New York Rangers.

Timonen will travel with the Flyers this week to road games at the Carolina Hurricanes and Toronto Maple Leafs but won't play. Instead he'll use the three days of practice to continue rounding into form.

"Tomorrow morning skate, Wednesday good practice and Thursday morning skate," Timonen said. "Those are the next steps -- more practices."

Timonen, who will turn 40 on March 18, has not played since being diagnosed with blood clots in his leg and lungs in August. But he began skating on his own Feb. 6 and has been practicing with the Flyers since Feb. 17.

"Eddie can carry the load going forward if he has to," Benning said. "Jacob has been outstanding in Utica too. We have great depth at goaltender."

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
