GLENDALE, Ariz. - David Pastrnak found out the hard way that Zdeno Chara was going to be a force to be reckoned with on Saturday night.

Khudobin to start in goal as Boston tries to snap two-game skid

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Trailing by three goals midway through the third period on Wednesday night in Colorado, the Bruins surged to within one by getting back to basics.

Both tallies - from Tim Schaller and Torey Krug (on the power play) just over a minute apart - were scored from the net front, the result of hard work and perseverance down low. Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy will be looking for more of the same on Saturday night when his team travels to Arizona with the hopes of snapping its two-game losing skid.

Bruins Drop Second Straight to Avalanche

Late surge falls short in 6-3 loss in Colorado

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

DENVER - Despite a late comeback bid, the Bruins dropped their second straight game to the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday night, falling, 6-3, at Pepsi Center.

Boston allowed three second-period goals to fall into a 4-1 hole, before surging back with two goals within a 1:27 span midway through the third to get within one. Strikes from Tim Schaller and Torey Krug and some dazzling stops from Anton Khudobin - who subbed in for Tuukka Rask during the final frame - gave the Bruins some hope, but two empty-netters for the Avs sealed a home-and-home sweep for Colorado.

Nash Slides Up to Top Line with Bergeron Out

Veteran forward looking to complement Marchand, Pastrnak

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

DENVER - Riley Nash will attempt his best Patrice Bergeron impression on Wednesday night against the Avalanche, as the veteran forward slots in to center the B's top line alongside Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak with Bergeron still out with a lower-body injury.

"Those guys are pretty creative guys," Nash said following pregame skate at Pepsi Center. "If you can just be a guy that's consistent in the spot they know you'll be then I think that benefits them and they can use their skill and their talent to the best of their abilities. I think just try to get to the net and be outlets for them and try to be as Bergy-like as possible."
