The Bruins are on a roll, finally. So is Tuukka Rask.
On the heels of the first two-game win streak of the season, the B’s played host to the New York Islanders on Monday night, and continued finding the back of the net in a 6-2 win.
Rask earned his first win of the season (yes, the season is a month old), finishing with 24 saves. His counterpart, Evegeni Nabokov, did not fare as well, allowing three goals on 12 shots before being pulled.
Nathan Horton scored two goals for the B’s. Beniot Pouliot scored his first as a Bruin, while Tyler Seguin, Milan Lucic, and David Krejci all scored as well.
The biggest news of the night, though, might have been the slapshot that hit Daniel Paille in the third period. He left the ice with a lot of blood on his face and did not return.
After the game, CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty tweeted that Paille may have suffered a broken nose. That’s not surprising, considering the video.
The B’s next take the ice on Thursday against Oilers at the TD Garden.
