The Boston Bruins took a double shot of Merlot tonight in their win over the New York Rangers. Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille both put in their third goals of the season in their 2-1 win. It was a sloppy game for the Black and Gold, and the victory can be laid solidly at the feet of the Bruins goaltender, the Finnish Wall Tuukka Rask.
