Boston Bruins: Brad Marchand, Tuukka Rask Play Against The Coyotes


Boston Bruins fans are happy that forward Brad Marchand is healthy and able to play against the Arizona Coyotes tonight. He missed the last two days with a concussion he sustained against the Montreal Canadiens.

“I can’t wait to get back and play,” Marchand told the media earlier today. “It’s always tough when you have to watch and especially when you’re uncertain about when you’ll get back. So, happy the day’s finally here, and looking forward to playing (Saturday night).”

Does it make sense that Brett Connolly is out? To me, not really. Connolly could be put in for at least half a dozen players. (I would have put Tyler Randell on that list, but he just scored the tying goal against the Coyotes.) I’d rather not see Connolly end up doing in Boston what he did in Tampa Bay.

  • If it’s all the same to the Bruins here, they’ve got the wrong Miller paired with Rask. Colin Miller is showing he can handle more minutes. It would make sense not to be the rookies together, but I’m not the coach here.

    Tuukka Rask

    In the past, Claude Julien always went with the hot goaltender. This is a bit of a change for Claude, but it’s an understandable one. It’s early enough in the season for Rask to get in those rough games. The Bruins also need to get their seven million dollar goaltender back up to Vezina level quickly.

    “He’s a competitor,” said the Bruins bench boss of Rask. “He’s always been a good goaltender and he’s not afraid to accept accountability and he knows that he’s a better goaltender than the first three games and his plan is to show that, so that’s what you expect.”

    “This is a sport that gives you challenges along the way and it’s how you deal with him and how you face those challenges that make a difference, so we know what he’s all about and we have full confidence in this guy that he’s certainly going to be a goaltender who’s going to bounce back.”

    Now it’s up to the Bruins to start their first winning streak of the season as they attempt to wrangle the Coyotes in their own den.
