Bruins Notes: Tuukka Rask Stellar Again In Emphatic Win Over Islanders

Boston Bruins center Tim Schaller second from left celebrates with teammates Noel Acciari, Sean Kuraly and Matt Grzelcyk, as New York Islanders goaltender Jaroslav Halak gets up during the third period of an NHL hockey game Tuesday

After watching most of November from the bench as a backup to the then-sizzling Anton Khudobin, the 30-year-old Rask rebounded and finished December with an NHL-best.955 save percentage and 1.22 goals against average (minimum six starts), and finished tied for the most wins (six) and shutouts (two) over that span.

The 30-year-old Savonlinna, Finland, native owns a 13-8-3 record through 25 games this season, ranking fourth in the National Hockey League in goals-against average (2.13) and ninth in save percentage (.923).

The month of December belonged to Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask. Marchand is now up to 34 points in 30 games this season.

- Danton Heinen has become a dependable forward for the B's. Marchand tallied the 400th point of his career back on December 14.

- Boston's offense is on fire.

Rask has gone 10-0-1 to earn points in each of his last 11 games, the longest such streak of his career.

The Bruins are 6-1 in their last seven overall but winless in their last four road games while the Isles are 4-9 in their last 13 overall and 14-6 in their last 20 home games. He yielded two or fewer goals in 10 of his 11 appearances, with the lone exception a 3-2 overtime loss December 16 vs. NYR. Boston's victory over the Islanders, combined with Toronto's loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning puts the Bruins into sole possession of second place, and they also have three games in hand on the Leafs.

- Getting a lead on the Bruins has been quite hard of late. This line up made up for it, though, as Marchand and Bergeron both scored later in the game.
