The Boston Bruins look to continue their recent improved play when the Minnesota Wild visit on Tuesday.
The bad news for the Minnesota Wild is they dropped a 5-4 decision at the Rangers on Monday so maybe the good news is they get right back in the ice Tuesday at at Boston and try to get the bad taste out of their mouth. The Wild entered the third with a 3-0 lead before New York scored five times in the final 30 minutes for the win. Derek Brassard, Mats Zuccarello, Rick Nash, Kevin Klein and Anthony Duclair did the damage in the third for the Rangers. Minnesota received goals from Jason Pominville, Nate Prosser, Jason Tucker and Matt Cooke with Darcy Kuemper charged with all five goals in the loss. Henrik Lundqvist picked up the win despite allowing all four tallies.

The Boston Bruins look to continue their turnarond from a slow start when the Minnesota Wild come to town after playing in New York Monday. The Bruins are trying to keep building momentum following a 4-1 victory over at Toronto was their third win in four contests and evened their record at 5-5. Dougie Hamilton paced the Bruins with a goal and a pair of helpers with David Krejci, Carl Soderberg and Gregory Campbell all finding the back of the net to make life easy for Tuuka Rask who recorded 32 stops to get the victory. The lone goal came off the stick of Richard Panik who broke up the shutout in the third. Jonathan Bernier took the loss with four goals given up on 25 shots with before getting the hook in the third.
