Tuukka Rask named NHL First Star of the Month

Tuukka Rask named NHL First Star of the Month

Bergeron won his faceoff against the Islanders' Mathew Barzal in the Boston zone, after which the puck skittered towards the net as Eberle and Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo chased after it. The Bruins are 16-3-2 since November 16, and only Vegas has more points than Boston during that span.

Following a brutal start to the season that saw Rask benched for four straight games and rank at the bottom of the league in save percentage (.897) and goals-against average (2.89), the 30-year-old netminder has orchestrated quite the turnaround over the past month.

Rask is in the midst of an 11-game point streak (10-0-1) - which stands as the longest streak of his career. 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. The Bruins are led by their dynamic top line of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak, who have combined for 95 points this season.


Boston opened the scoring with a goal off a draw in the middle of the first period.

Rask stopped 277 of the 290 shots he faced, going 9-0-1 with a 1.22 goals-against average, .955 save percentage and two shutouts to guide the Bruins (21-10-6, 48 points) to a 10-2-2 December and second place in the Atlantic Division.

After the Bruins' Riley Nash won a faceoff deep in the NY zone with John Tavares, the puck bounced to Heinen, whose shot from the circle sailed past Halak 8:17 into the period. Forward Tanner Fritz made his National Hockey League debut against Boston after the Islanders called him up from the AHL on Monday.
