2 16 Highlights Montreal Canadiens 4, Boston Bruins 2

BRIGHTON, Mass. It would appear to be something a little more serious than general soreness with Tuukka Rask.

The Bruins No. 1 goaltender was missing from the ice at Warrior Ice Arena for Saturday s morning skate and Claude Julien said he won t play tonight vs. the Montreal Canadiens.

Instead, the B s have recalled Zane McIntyre from Providence on an emergency basis and to serve as Anton Khudobin s backup. Rask has clearly been battling a lower body injury since the opening night win over the Columbus Blue Jackets last week and it cropped up again in the Thursday night win over the New Jersey Devils.

The same injury also forced the B s to play Khudobin instead of Rask in their only loss of the season, a 4 1 defeat to the Maple Leafs in Toronto one week ago.

Rask admitted he was playing through a little something something after the Jersey win and Julien would only say that his goalie has general soreness and is considered day to day after missing team practice on Friday. Julien reiterated the day to day status Saturday.

He s doing better, but we re going to shut him off for a bit, said Julien, who said he wasn t concerned about the long term health of his franchise goaltender. We ll give him another day s rest at least, but we ll still go day by day.

It s a severe case of bad timing for both Rask and the B s as the Finnish netminder is off to a roaring start this season 3 0 0 with a .947 save percentage and a 1.67 goals against average after his worst season last year for the Black and Gold.

The 24 year old McIntyre has appeared in three games for Providence, going 1 0 0 and leading the AHL in goals against average 0.44 and save percentage .977 in a solid start after a rough rookie pro season last year.

Boston s sixth round pick in the 2010, McIntyre, played his first professional season with Providence in 2015 16, going14 8 7 with a 2.68 GAA and .898 save percentage in 31 games.

Malcolm Subban might have been the call up under different circumstances, but has been pulled by the P Bruins twice in the span of a week including a Friday night loss where he allowed three goals in the first period in an eventual 4 1 loss.

BOSTON There s only so long that a team can hope to thrive, or even survive, in the NHL if they re constantly chasing the game on the scoreboard, and chasing the puck after digging themselves a hole. The Bruins have been that team in the first couple of weeks during the regular season, and made it five times in five games that they ve given up the game s first goal in an eventual 4 2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens at TD Garden.

It s a pattern that is long past getting old to Bruins head coach Claude Julien, who can t seem to play the front runner this season despite three comebacks that have allowed for a 3 2 0 record overall this season.

I hope it s not a habit. It s certainly not what we re looking for, but there s no doubt. I think it s pretty obvious that with the amount of games we ve played, five games, we haven t scored first, said Julien. We talked about that this morning, trying to get that first goal, and it hasn t happened yet.

The start to the game wasn t really the problem on Saturday night as it s been a couple of times this season. Instead the Bruins enjoyed a handful of quality scoring chances in the opening 20 minutes against the Habs, but couldn t come through and finish off those plays when it might have meant an early lead.

Instead it lead to what Julien termed a terrible second period that was flat, full of mistakes and ended with the B s trailing Montreal by a couple of goals. The Bruins scratched and clawed their way to making it a one goal game in the third period, but that was as close as the Black and Gold would get in losing their ninth straight home game to the arch rival Canadiens.

It s kind of been a story about how things are going for us this far, we ve got to find a way to start playing with a lead. If you don t capitalize on your chances, you see what happens when you come out [flat] in the second period, said Torey Krug Shea Weber Jersey, who finished a game worst minus 3 in the loss for the Bruins. We had another poor second period and you know it s kind of you got to make sure that we put our hand on that and it doesn t become a thing for the team this year. You see that when you don t capitalize on chances early Carey Price Jersey, that s what s going to happen.

It s been a positive development that the Bruins have shown the willingness and backbone to fight back into games after early deficits, and they showed that quality once again on Saturday night by scoring a couple of goals in the third period to keep things close. But the Bruins would be best served if they can start lighting the lamp a little earlier in these games, and see how the other half lives by playing with a comfortable lead every once in a while.
