Goalie exits during first period after suffering concussion in nasty collision

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - On a night when he was aiming for the franchise record for wins, Tuukka Rask was forced to leave the Bruins' game against the Rangers midway through the first period after suffering a concussion during a nasty collision with New York forward Filip Chytil.

Rask, who was riding a seven-game points streak, appeared dazed as he lay on the ice and needed assistance from trainer Don DelNegro and his teammates to make his way to the dressing room. Jaroslav Halak entered the contest and allowed two goals and took the loss as the Bruins fell to the Rangers, 3-2, in the final game before the team's nine-day break.

Whitney Doucet To Perform National Anthem At Bruins-Rangers Game

by Boston Bruins @NHLBruins / Boston Bruins

BOSTON - The Boston Bruins announced today that Fitchburg, MA native Whitney Doucet will perform the national anthem at the Boston Bruins home game against the New York Rangers on Saturday, January 19.  

Doucet recently performed the national anthem on NFL opening day for the New England Patriots. Her newly released single "Lights Down Low" has been featured on 101.7 The Bull's "Backyard Country" and Country 102.5 "local catch". She also sang a duet with country singer Keith Urban during his "Raise 'em Up" tour. When Doucet is not performing acoustically or with The Moonshine Band, she can be found teaching vocal lessons at Patrice Peris Voice Studio in Westborough, MA. 

With the retirement of Garden legend, Rene Rancourt, at the conclusion of the 2017-18 season, the Boston Bruins held live auditions on August 8 to find a rotating group of singers who would perform the anthem at home games during the 2018-19 season. Out of more than 600 applications, 52 finalists were chosen to partake in the live auditions. Doucet is the 13th out of that group of finalists to be selected to perform this season, following Todd Angilly, Shanna Jackman, Dayna Fisk, Michelle Brooks-Thompson, Kara McEachern, Nick Page, Sarah Kostecki, Vanessa Salvucci, David Tyler, Kamryn Richard, Paige Vigneron and Nicole Talbot. Information on future new anthem performers will be announced prior to each Boston Bruins home game.

Bruins Set to Take on Old Friends

McQuaid, Quinn had meaningful impact on many in Black & Gold

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Every game in the National Hockey League is important. Two points are always at a premium, especially as the schedule enters the second half.

But there are certainly games that stand out more than others. And for many in Black & Gold, Saturday's tilt with the New York Rangers is one of them.

The matchup marks the return of Adam McQuaid to Boston for the first time since being traded to the Rangers on the opening day of training camp, as well as a homecoming for New York bench boss and Rhode Island native David Quinn, who coached a trio of Bruins at Boston University.

Need to Know: Bruins vs. Rangers

Rask has chance to become Boston's all-time winningest goaltender

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - A win for the Bruins on Saturday night against the New York Rangers would be significant in more ways than one.

Boston would like nothing more than to go into their eight-day bye week on a high note, but a win with Tuukka Rask between the pipes would also be quite noteworthy for another reason. With two points against the Blue Shirts, Rask would become the winningest goalie in franchise history.

"I mean, it's an Original Six franchise. I've had the luxury to be here for many, many years, so obviously it means a lo, but many more to come hopefully," Rask said after tying Tiny Thompson for the top spot with his 252nd win on Thursday night against St. Louis.

Cehlarik Fitting Right In

Winger making his mark on second line in first two games back with Bruins

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Neither play is likely to make the day's highlight reels. They were far from flashy, but rather subtle contributions that go a long way in helping a team to victory - and don't go unnoticed by the coaching staff.

They were plays that left Bruce Cassidy with plenty of adjectives to describe the performance of Peter Cehlarik on Thursday night.
