  UCLA squeaks out ugly win over Long Beach State in Mick Cronin's Bruins debut The vibe inside Pauley Pavilion was upbeat before the game. The keepsake UCLA tickets featured a smiling Mick Cronin holding a basketball, and the coach generated a few cheers when he was shown folding his arms on the scoreboard as part of a pregame video. For nearly 36 minutes, that might have been about it for the highlights Wednesday night. The Bruins exhibited flashes of Cronin's trademark For nearly 36 minutes, that might have been about it for the highlights Wednesday night.

Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask discusses the team' s successful road trip, and how they can continue their success at home against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Boston Bruins have acquired goaltender Tuukka Rask from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for goaltender Andrew Raycroft, it was announced today by Bruins Interim General Manager Jeff Gorton. “We had an opportunity, with three good, solid goaltenders who are all number one goalies in

The rest were in earnest.

Fighting back from a miserable first period, the Bruins emerged with a 3-2 win on Thursday night, holding off a Buffalo Sabres club that was 2-7-2 the previous month.

Brad Marchand scored twice, and David Pastrnak became the first player to 20 goals this season. In Boston’s 22nd game of the year, Marchand hit the 15-goal mark, making them the first teammates in a decade with 15 each through 22 games.

  The Buzzer: Big night for goalies; Draisaitl keeps rolling for Oilers It was a night of big goaltending performances, a big debut for a new Red Wing, and Leon Draisaitl still leading the way for the Oilers.1. Jonathan Bernier, Detroit Red Wings. Robby Fabbri was not the only Red Wings player to have a big night in their upset win over the Boston Bruins. Bernier had a huge night making 26 saves — including a highlight reel glove save on David Pastrnak that you will see down below — and recording two assists. He is the first goalie since Tuukka Rask in 2016 to record at least two assists in a single game.

NEW YORK — Tuukka Rask says he likes playing back-to-back games, frequently performs better BROADWAY STAR: Tuukka Rask makes one of his career-high 43 saves during the Bruins ’ 2-1 The Bruins were underdogs to hold off the hard-charging Rangers in the third, but Rask helped them

Rask was the most important member of the Bruins tonight, delivering a top-notch performance to earn the victory . GOLD STAR: Got to give it to Tuukka Rask , who made 31 saves overall and stopped 21-of-22 shots in the first couple of periods while the Bruins were getting their footing after

They were boosted by linemate Patrice Bergeron, who added an assist in his return from a two-game injury absence.

This was the slowest start for the Bruins all season: One puck on net in the first 10 minutes, and four in the opening 20. Yet despite being outshot, 17-4, in the first, they emerged from that opening 20 minutes tied at 1, and finished with a respectable 27 shots. They held off a late charge from Buffalo (10-9-3), who pulled keeper Linus Ullmark with 1:12 to go.

The Bruins (14-3-5), 3-0-3 in their last six, host the Wild on Saturday.

■  The four shots tied Boston’s third period on Nov. 8 at Detroit for their season low. The Sabres recorded the game’s first 14 shots, and that aforementioned Bronx cheer came when Brandon Carlo landed the home team’s first attempt on goal — from the blue line, a try easily handled by Ullmark — 12:11 into the affair.

It’s Bruce Cassidy’s job to put the brake on Bruins’ skid — fast

  It’s Bruce Cassidy’s job to put the brake on Bruins’ skid — fast The fact that the Bruins couldn’t close out the Panthers is particularly troubling, and something new for the coach.Now, is OK a problem? Viewed through the prism of Tuesday night’s epic collapse and shootout loss to the Panthers — the first time in franchise history the Bruins converted a 4-0 lead in the third period into a loss — it would appear so. They’re also winless in their last four (0-2-2) and aren’t sure how soon power-play quarterback Torey Krug will be back on duty.

The Boston Bruins didn’t need much help from their goaltender Saturday, but Tuukka Rask gave it to them anyway. The Bruins netminder made 21 saves in The B’s led by just one goal at the time, but Rask held his ground to prevent the game-tying score. Check out Rask ’ s solid save in the “DCU Save

■  Jack Eichel, who had a pair of four-point games in his first six appearances at TD Garden, set up the first goal with patience in the left circle. He delayed and put a heavy shot on Tuukka Rask, and recorded an assist when Rasmus Ristolainen jammed home the rebound. Ristolainen, the big (6-foot-4-inch, 220-pound) defenseman, was working the old Zdeno Chara net-front spot, and got inside position on Carlo, also a big (6-5, 212) defenseman.

■  The Bruins scored on their second shot of the game. Pastrnak won a puck battle and set up Chara for a point drive. Marchand slipped in front and deflected home his 14th goal of the year at 13:52.

■  Marchand got his second of the night by cleaning up a power-play chance from Matt Grzelcyk with 5:15 to go in the second. The Bruins’ power play, still missing Torey Krug, looked much more formidable with Bergeron back in his usual bumper position. Grzelcyk, who had a strong game, was a reason for that.

Tuukka Rask ’ s daughter Vivien Rask came into the world during an off day. She was born after the first two games were done (and the Bruins tied up the In 2016, rumors floated that the couple was expecting another child. There’s been no further details around this, and no news announcing the birth.

The Boston Bruins completed the trifecta Saturday night when they defeated the rival Montreal Canadiens 4-1 at Bell Centre to notch their third Boston led 2-1 midway through the third period when the Canadiens went on the attack against Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask . But, as he’ s done for the

■  Pastrnak made it 3-1 at 1:56 of the third, converting on the power play to reach the 20-goal mark for the fourth season in a row.

■  Rask made the save of the game — and one of the best the NHL’s seen all season — at 4:51 of the third. Evan Rodrigues had an empty net, but Rask, without a stick, dived to his right and made a blocker-hand stop to deny the goal. It was a Tim Thomas/Dominik Hasek special. Rask made several excellent stops, including a power-play one-timer on Conor Sheary when the Bruins were up, 2-1, in the second. Jeff Skinner beat him five-hole in the dying seconds of the middle frame, but the puck trickled off the post and out.

■  As good as Rask was, stopping 31 of the first 32 shots he saw, he let in a stinker with 7:02 left. He didn’t track one off the stick of defenseman Brandon Montour, who shot from outside the left circle, and beat him glove side. He finished with 36 saves.

■  With the Bruins getting handled in the first, Chris Wagner took exception to Curtis Lazar’s high shoves on rookie defenseman Urho Vaakanainen after the whistle. The two began trading haymakers.

■  The Bruins shuffled lines in the first two periods partly because of the ineffectiveness of their forwards, but mostly because of an injury to Par Lindholm. The third-line center played just 20 seconds in the first, and 2:14 in the second because of an apparent right leg/knee injury. After tangling in the corner with Rasmus Asplund three minutes into the game, Lindholm threw down his gloves, grabbed at his knee, and hobbled down the tunnel. He later returned, and skated 6:18 in all.

■  The Bruins recognized head athletic trainer Don DelNegro, in his 27th season with the organization, for working his 2,000th game.
