Today we take a look at the Bruins third best regular season game of 2013.

New York Rangers vs. Boston Bruins, January 19, 2013

Once the National Hockey League and it’s players’ agreed to a new CBA and the lockout was officially ended, Bruins fans anxiously awaited the first Bruins game of the 2013 season. That game came on a frigid Saturday night in Boston where the Bruins hosted the star-powered New York Rangers.

Goals by Milan Lucic and Daniel Paille, followed up by a key insurance goal from Johnny Boychuk capped off a 3-1 Bruins opening night win. Tuukka Rask made 20 saves in his first start of the post-Tim Thomas era. Rick Nash scored the lone goal for the Rangers in his first game as a blueshirt.

Teams didn’t have much time between the first date they were allowed to practice with coaches and opening night, but that didn’t seem to slow down either team in this entertaining game.

“That’s also one of the things we tried to touch up on this week of practice, is go over our systems again and getting back to being defensively sound and having those good, quick breakouts, and even being quick in the neutral zone,” Lucic said.

“So it was great to see that everyone was fired up for this game, especially against one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference and all of the NHL, and it was good to see that we rose to the occasion.”

Here are the highlights
