Boston Bruins


David Pastrnak scored his 26th as the Bruins fell 3-2 to the Washington Capitals Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: The score snapped a four game goal-less streak for Pastrnak, who still maintains a five goal lead over Alex Ovechkin (21) for most goals in the NHL.

Jaroslav Halak allowed 3 goals on 25 shots as the Bruins dropped their fourth straight game in a 3-2 loss at the Washington Capitals Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Halak has dropped his last two starts. He remains a solid backup goaltender option in all formats despite the recent blip.

Patrice Bergeron returns

Tue, Dec 10th 8:24am EST
By John Pritchard

Patrice Bergeron scored an empty net goal in Boston's 5-2 loss at Ottawa Monday night. It was Bergeron's first start in seven games.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should rejoice with caution: the lower-body injury, a groin injury which Bergeron opted to avoid off-season surgery on, has been troublesome for the 34-year-old vet all season long.

Tuukka Rask allowed three goals on 26 shots as the Senators added two empty-netters to defeat the Bruins 5-2 Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: This was Rask's second straight loss where he was victimized by Boston's inability to clear the puck in their own zone. He's a sterling a 13-3-3 with a .927 save percentage on the season.

Brad Marchand had a goal and two assists in Boston's 8-1 drubbing of the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Marchand has lit up the scoreboard during the Bruins four game win streak with four goals and six assists.

Category: Game Recaps

Torey Krug scored the winning goal in overtime and recorded two assists in Boston's 5-4 victory over Minnesota on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Krug had been on IR, missing five games with an upper-body injury. He's now up to two goals and 13 points in 17 appearances this season and should be activated in all formats.

David Krejci had two goals in the final two minutes of regulation, rallying Boston in their 5-4 home victory over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Krejci is now fifth among Bruins in points with four goals and 11 assists. He's only owned in about 1/3 of all leagues and is worthy of keeping an eye on for injury replacement purposes.

Danton Heinen scored his fourth goal of the season in Boston's 3-2 shootout loss against the Flyers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Heinen is coming off a 12 goal campaign in '18-19. This season he's seeing time on the Bruins second line and first power play unit. He scored 16 goals and 31 assists in '17-18, numbers that he could approach again if his increased playing time is sustained. He's worthy of keeping an eye on in deeper fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Impact: The former Notre Dame standout's career has been stalled by injury, but given his offensive skills, he could be poised for a break out if he settles in at left wing on Boston's third line. Keep an eye on him in deep leagues to see how the situation pans out.

Matt Grzelcyk scored the only Boston Bruins goal during Wednesday's 4-1 Game 7 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Fantasy Impact: After not playing since May 29, Grzelcyk finally returned to the starting lineup Wednesday night for a decisive Game 7 against St. Louis. He contributed with his fourth goal of the playoffs, but it was too little too late. The Bruins were already down 4-0 with almost two minutes remaining in the game. Boston would fall 4-1 as the Blues captured their first ever Stanley Cup Championship in franchise history.

Fantasy Impact: After breaking his jaw earlier in the series, Zdeno Chara made himself available for Game 5 and he will do the same for Game 6 Sunday as well. The 42-year old veteran will look to keep his team alive in the series with a win in Game 6 and forcing a seventh game Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact: The Bruins are in a do-or-do game situation Sunday evening as they are down 3-2 in the series. Boston will need as many of their role players present for Sunday's action if they are to force a Game 7 for Wednesday night. Acciari currently has four points and a plus-three rating through 17 games played this postseason.

Brandon Carlo scored a shorthanded goal 14:19 into the second period of Game 4 to knot things up 2-2.

Fantasy Impact: It was impressive to see Carlo score his first ever postseason goal on the penalty kill during Monday's 4-2 loss in Game 4. He also possesses a plus-eight rating during the playoffs, making him a very valuable asset on the back-end for the Bruins.

Charlie Coyle scored a goal 13:14 into the first period to tie up Game 4 1-1. Unfortunately for Boston, the Blues would come out victorious in the end with a 4-2 win.

Fantasy Impact: This was Coyle's ninth goal of the postseason and his third straight game with one as well. He will look to continue to produce in Game 5 at home this Thursday night.

Category: Game Recaps

Joakim Nordstrom provided assists on both Sean Kuraly's goal and Noel Acciari's goal during Boston's 7-2 Game 3 win over the Blues.

Fantasy Impact: Nordstrom is currently riding a three-game point streak and has produced five points in his previous five games played. Nordstrom has been contributing at an impressive rate lately and is becoming a fine role player as the Bruins are closing in on their second title within the decade.

Category: Game Recaps

Marcus Johansson joined in on the Bruins scoring frenzy with a goal and assist during Game 3 Saturday evening.

Fantasy Impact: Johansson had gone four straight games without a point prior to the start of Game 3 Saturday. It is encouraging to see he has some life in his offensive production for the Bruins. It remains to be seen if he will be able to build upon Game 3's performance in the near future.

John Moore will start in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals against St. Louis Saturday after defenseman Matt Grzelcyk got injured in Game 2. (Source: Boston Bruins on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Moore has a minus-four rating and no points produced in five playoff games played this season.

Charlie McAvoy scored the game-tying goal about midway through the second period of Game One versus the Blues. Boston would wind up prevailing 4-2 over St. Louis.

Fantasy Impact: McAvoy has had a solid defensive performance this postseason with a plus-nine rating and eight points produced through 17 games played so far.

Category: Game Recaps

Connor Clifton got the scoring started for the Bruins Monday as he scored a goal a little over two minutes into the second period of Game One. The Bruins did not look back from that point on to claim a 4-2 victory.

Fantasy Impact: Clifton owns a plus-four rating and has earned four points through 13 games played this postseason.

Category: Game Recaps

Sean Kuraly produced both the game-winning goal, and an assist on Connor Clifton's goal to help lift the Bruins over the Blues 4-2 in Game One Monday.
