Today on Bruins Daily
The Bruins might have a day off before playing their third game in four nights tomorrow when they welcome the St. Louis Blues to TD Garden. But we here at Bruins Daily will keep the ball rolling.
Bruins Daily stats guru Dan St. Pierre will chime in on how the Bruins are faring against the rest of the Eastern Conference, while your’s truly and Erika Leigh film another edition of Bruins Daily TV at Studio 73 at Suffolk University and of course the fourth installment of the Jack Edwards Call of the Week is coming your way tonight.
In case you missed it…
…Or you just want to relive Tuukka Rask stealing the show, your’s truly explains why last night’s 43-save performance is just a small sample of why the 26-year old Finnish goalie should be considered as one of the early favorites for the Hart Trophy as the league’s most valuable player on Boston.com.
It wasn’t all good news from Madison Square Garden as Dennis Seidenberg left the game early in the first period with a lower body injury and left the Bruins’ defense thin with five defensemen last night. That, combined with Adam McQuaid’s injury is putting the once deep blue-line a little shallow for the time being. (Joe McDonald/ESPN Boston)

Stat of the day
33 – The Bruins’ record for most consecutive penalties killed. Yes, that streak was snapped last night after Derrick Brassard’s power play goal at 12:31 of the second period, but it’s still worthy of a salute if you ask us.
