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

Boston Bruins

Jordan Eberle #7 of the New York Islanders is congratulated by teammae Mathew Barzal #13 after Eberle scored the game winning goal in overtime against the Los Angeles Kings on December 16, 2017 at Barclays Center in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.The New York Islanders defeated the Los Angeles Kings 4-3 in overtime.

Brad Marchand scored a goal and picked up an assist in a 5-1 win over the New York Islanders. The Bruins are 16-3-2 since November 16, and only Vegas has more points than Boston during that span. Josh Bailey was held without a point, ending his career-high streak at 11 games. He is now riding a 10-0-1 streak and has not lost in regulation since November 26.

Both teams scored goals immediately off faceoffs within a 73-second span shortly before the midway point of the first. Riley Nash won the faceoff and the puck went right to Heninen, who fired the puck past Halak at 8:17.

Thursday will be the first meeting of the season between Atlantic Division foes Florida and Boston.

Eberle evened the score just over a minute later after he forced a turnover in front of the net and slid the puck past the extended leg of Rask for his 14th. A centering pass to Marchand took a amusing deflection right to Bergeron on the side of the net and the Bruins' forward banked it in off Halak at 8:28. Brad Marchand's shot from point-blank range skipped over the head of Halak and behind the net, where Bergeron caught it, dropped it and wrapped a shot off the back of Halak's skate and into the back of the net.
