Video: Bruins beat Rangers in Nash’s return

Nov 19, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

There was some good news for the New York Rangers on Tuesday.

They generated a 44-22 shot disparity against the Boston Bruins and Rick Nash returned to action. Despite that, the Boston Bruins won 2-1:

Note: you know things are getting a little frosty in New York when fans give a “Bronx cheer” to Henrik Lundqvist.

      Seriously, how has no one commented on the picture selection on this article?? He looks like he’s riding a mechanical bull!

    I don’t know if I can remember a team losing a game in which they dominated to that extent. Full marks to Rask. Oh yeah, and maybe the Rangers want to try shooting glove after their first 30 shots to the blocker didn’t work?

    Being back below .500 blows, but if we keep playing games like we did against the Kings and Bruins, we’ll be fine.

      This Rangers team is infuriating. It’s not the first time they have badly outplayed a team for most of the game, only to lose because of one or two lapses that the other team capitalized on. Last night it was a breakdown on the power play that led to a short-handed goal. Normally when a team puts up 40-45 shots and loses, you congratulate the opposing goalie, but it’s been happning too much to the Rangers. They can’t do that every game and keep using the “hot goalie” excuse. They need to work on positioning and shot selection, and I hope the next player that passes up an open shot (I’m looking at you, Zuccarello) gets benched for a period to think about what he’s done.

        Agreed on the Zuccarello point. He forced that pass on the 2-on-1 when he was in a great shooting position. That said, with the way Rask was playing I’m sure that wouldn’t have worked either.

        Rask’s the best goalie in the NHL right now.

    I think Kreider is going to have nightmares about Rask after last nights game. He had countless great scoring chances including the penalty shot and was shut down every time. Bruins fan here and Rask STOLE that game. Hope Seidenberg is back soon…that will be a tough loss. Also, the 4th line was their best line last night.

    • xdj511 - Nov 20, 2013 at 9:27 AM

      Ugh, that penalty shot went through the seven hole between his blocker and his body and caught enough of his side to deflect wide of the net. He tried the same shot on his breakaway later in the game and hit the edge of the blocker and it went wide. Kreider was the best player on the ice last night, but he needs to learn how to miss goalies.

    where are all you ranger fan haters that all blew up on me when I said Rask was a better goalie than Henrik before the start of last season? 😀

    • stepanup - Nov 20, 2013 at 9:51 AM

      Before the start of last season? Rask’s the best goalie in the NHL, this season. Leave it at that.

    Two “U”s, two “K”s, two points!

    Tuukka Rask stole this one for the Bruins for sure.

    • drewzducks - Nov 20, 2013 at 3:00 PM

      You owe Jack a quarter for that !

      • stepanup - Nov 20, 2013 at 3:44 PM

        Jack was pissing me off last night. Made a big stink about Boyle not dropping the gloves with Thornton (why would he down a goal late in the game?), and tried to pin a stick save made by Lundqvist as a delay of game call.

        Also, referred to Staal as Mr. Visor. Staal had a catastrophic and possibly career altering eye injury. Jack’s just a scrawny, nerd of a fan-boy with a microphone. Represent Oyster River High School a little better than that Jack. It’s approaching Tom Heinsohn levels.

        @ stepanup. . .

        I wholeheartedly agree. Jack Edwards is nothing short of painful to listen to. (& I’m a Bruins fan)

        I’m at the point where I would rather listen to the radio broadcast while watching the game.

      • drewzducks - Nov 20, 2013 at 5:37 PM

        But who else will keep us apprised of skittering and exploding pucks along the half wall ?

  7. shortsxit34 - Nov 20, 2013 at 12:31 PM

    Like everyone has already said, Rask stole two points for the Bruins. Rask is put in a tough position almost every game. If he gives up 2 goals, there’s a good chance they’re going to lose. If he gives up 3, he’s almost guaranteed a loss. Rask needs to play perfectly every game because he has zero offensive support and if he plays poorly, his scorers won’t bail him out.

    Has there been any news on Seidenberg? I don’t even remember if he played a shift before leaving. They were down to 5 D, and they’ve been playing with 4-5 D several times lately.

    I’d like to believe the Bruins defense is better than average, but what the hell were they doing out there for the first two periods? Were they just skating around or were the Rangers teeing off from anywhere? Looks like the Bs top lines had an off night.

  9. gallyhatch - Nov 20, 2013 at 1:27 PM

    Hey, James O’Brien, let’s not ignore the fact that both Bruins’ goals were scored by 4th line players, the value of whom you very openly questioned just this past Monday.
