DENVER - When Jake DeBrusk dropped to a knee and delivered his signature fist pump celebration early in the second period, things were looking quite bright for the Bruins. It was the winger's second goal of the game and gave Boston a two-goal lead over the Avalanche.

Unfortunately for the Bruins, it was the last bit of celebrating they would do on Wednesday night.

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

DENVER - The Bruins open up their four-game, nine-day road trip on Wednesday night with a visit to the Colorado Avalanche. It will be a battle of top lines as Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, and David Pastrnak take on Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon, and Mikko Rantanen.

"It will be fun and interesting…we know they have a good team, tough to play against them in this building," said Pastrnak, who leads the NHL with 16 goals this season. "Just play simple, try to put a lot of pucks on net and in deep and try to get it behind them and don't give them anything for free. Definitely play simple at the beginning and try to come harder than them the first five minutes."

The two high-powered trios will go head to head

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Ultimately, it's the Bruins and Avalanche that will be going head to head on Wednesday night in Denver. But inside of that matchup will be a smaller, highly intriguing clash.

When the teams meet at Pepsi Center, it will pit what many believe are the National Hockey League's two best lines against each other: Boston's dynamic trio of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, and David Pastrnak vs. Colorado's explosive triumvirate of Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon, and Mikko Rantanen.

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - After taking a few days to tend to a personal matter, Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask rejoined the team on Tuesday and was back on the ice for practice at Warrior Ice Arena. The netminder addressed the media following the session and thanked his teammates and the organization for their support.

"First and foremost, I want to thank all the people who sent messages and contacted me and supported me," said Rask, who was granted a leave of absence last Friday. "Second of all, I want to thank the Boston Bruins for giving me the opportunity to take time off with my family. I've never been more proud to be a part of this family, the Boston Bruins…we talk about it a lot, this is a family, we are a family, and we take care of each other when times are tough."

BostonBruins.com - NHL trailblazer and Bruins legend Willie O'Ree will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto as a builder on Monday night.

And since 1998, O'Ree, now 83, has served as the NHL's Director of Youth Development and NHL Diversity Ambassador, as he travels throughout North America in an attempt to grow the game of hockey.

O'Ree will enter the Hall on Monday with NHL Commisioner Gary Bettman, former Canadian women's team captain Jayna Hefford, Soviet star Aleksander Yakushev, and NHL legends Martin Brodeur and Martin St. Louis.

Check out some photos from this weekend's festivities in Toronto, including the unveiling of the Hall of Fame plaques and the Legends Classic.

Secondary Scoring Begins to Emerge

B's receive 25 points from outside top line during homestand

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - The Bruins received their daily dose of perfection on Sunday night, as Boston's top line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, and David Pastrnak added another two goals and two assists to their already eye-popping totals.

But the Black & Gold's leading trio was not the primary focus in a 4-1 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights. In addition to Jaroslav Halak's stellar 37-save outing, the Bruins received some strong production from their bottom six, which appeared to gain some momentum and confidence over the course of a 3-1 homestand.

Halak Backs Bruins in Win Over Vegas

Netminder makes 77 saves in two weekend victories

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - The Bruins faced an interesting challenge over the weekend.

With a back-to-back against the Toronto Maple Leafs and Vegas Golden Knights on tap and Tuukka Rask away from the team to tend to a personal matter, Bruce Cassidy was left with a decision: play Jaroslav Halak in both ends of the back-to-back set or go with youngster Dan Vladar for Sunday night's tilt with Vegas.

Ultimately, Cassidy chose to ride with Halak for the duration. It was a sound decision.

Need to Know: Bruins vs Golden Knights

Brandon Carlo questionable, Rask may return Tuesday

by Michael Tolvo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

 BOSTON - For the second consecutive game, the Bruins put a five-spot on the Home section of the scoreboard at TD Garden. However, unlike Thursday against Vancouver, the Black and Gold's defensive efforts helped ensure a victory over their Atlantic Division rival Toronto Maple Leafs.

"The defending obviously Thursday was not where it needed to be," said Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy. "Early in the game [Saturday], less about defending and more about our execution early on. Getting out of our end, we were trapped in there a few times and they threw everything at the net. Some of that is rebound control, some of it is clearing pucks, blocking shots, putting out fires. We eventually did, got it going."
