Kuhlman Gets the Call

Forward promoted from Providence following Pastrnak injury

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Karson Kuhlman's first full professional season did not get off to the strongest of starts. The 23-year-old, fresh off leading Minnesota Duluth to the National Championship last spring, went without a goal for his first 14 games with the Providence Bruins.

But Kuhlman, who suited up for three games with the P-Bruins at the end of last season after signing a two-year contract with Boston, was not deterred. And in the 19 games since the Christmas break, he notched nine goals and seven assists.

That run of success - which included a two-goal output on Saturday night against Syracuse - coincided with the Bruins' need for a forward following the injury to David Pastrnak over the weekend, opening up an opportunity for last year's NCAA Tournament MVP.

Secondary Scoring Provides a Boost

With Pastrnak sidelined, Heinen and DeBrusk come through in Bruins win over Chicago

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - For a team already struggling to generate a surplus of offense, the loss of its leading scorer is far from ideal.

Through 56 games this season, David Pastrnak was pacing the Bruins with 66 points and 31 goals as he charged through a career campaign. Thus, the news on Tuesday morning that the 22-year-old would miss at least the next two weeks following a thumb procedure - the result of a fall after a team function on Sunday night - was a devastating blow.

And with the Chicago Blackhawks coming to town riding seven straight victories, the expectation was that goals could be at a premium.

Not so much.

Patrice Bergeron Named NHL Second Star Of The Week

by Boston Bruins @NHLBruins / Boston Bruins

BOSTON - The National Hockey League announced today, ‪February 11, that Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron has been named the NHL's second star of the week for the week ending February 10.

Bergeron scored two goals in his 1,000th career NHL game on Tuesday, February 5, against the New York Islanders, becoming the 334th NHL player to achieve that milestone, the 12th to do so this season, and the 31st to play all of his career games with one team. He is the 5th Bruin to play 1,000 games in a Boston uniform, joining Ray Bourque (1,518), John Bucyk (1,436), Don Sweeney (1,052) and Wayne Cashman (1,027). On Wednesday, February 6, Bergeron tallied one goal and six shots on goal in 19:29 time on ice in the Bruins' 4-3 shootout loss at N.Y. Rangers. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound center notched the game-winning goal in overtime, in addition to two assists, in the team's 5-4 win over Los Angeles on Saturday, February 9. The overtime winner capped off a night at TD Garden in which Bergeron was honored during a pregame ceremony with his family for reaching the 1,000-game milestone. To finish off the week, Bergeron recorded the primary assist on Brad Marchand's overtime game winner in the Bruins' 2-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche Sunday afternoon. In four games this week, he totaled four goals and three assists for seven points with a plus-six rating.

McAvoy Finding His Footing

Defenseman was an all-around force in Bruins OT victory over Colorado

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Charlie McAvoy is looking to build some momentum.

The former first-round pick has not had the smoothest of sophomore campaigns, with a concussion and foot infection limiting him to just 29 games.

But since returning from the foot ailment on Jan. 12 - a span of 12 games - the blue liner has slowly begun to put the pieces back together. And it was McAvoy's performance over the weekend that signaled his elite top-pairing abilities might be rounding back into form just in time for the stretch run.

A day after notching two points (goal, assist) in the Bruins' win over Los Angeles, McAvoy continued his strong play on Sunday afternoon, collecting an assist and three hits - while logging a team-high 25:34 of ice time - in Boston's 2-1 overtime victory against the Colorado Avalanche at TD Garden.
