BOSTON — So often in the NHL Patrice Bergeron Jersey , it comes down to goaltending.Especially when your defense is banged up and missing so many key parts.The Boston Bruins, hampered by a lengthy injury list on defense (as many as six at one time), are getting outstanding goaltending from Jaroslav Halak and Tuukka Rask as they head into Saturday night’s home game against the Detroit Red Wings.Article continues below ...It is already the third meeting of the season between the Original Six foes and the Wings come in trying to end an 11-game TD Garden losing streak.Asked after Thursday night’s 2-1 shootout victory over the New York Islanders about his team’s emphasis on defense, coach Bruce Cassidy said, “I think they’re working hard as a group, but at the end of the day, we have to give credit where it’s due and that’s the goaltending.“It’s been rock-solid for us, and I think they understand as much as anything that listen, we’re having trouble scoring goals. If we want to win games, we have to be dialed in and can’t really afford to have a night off until we get our offense going. I guess it’s spread around.”The Bruins (14-7-4) are 4-2-2 since Rask returned from his three-day personal-issue absence. They have allowed 19 goals in the eight games, but six of those came in the first of those games — and they have yielded 12 goals in seven games since.“It’s been tight games, I don’t know, the past five or six of them, but it builds character,” said Rask, who was outstanding Thursday and added, “and it’s good that we’ve been able to grind those games out and come out on top for the most part. You’ve got to learn to win every different kind of way Matt Read Jersey Womens , and it’s just kind of part of the process.”The Red Wings opened the season by going 0-5-2, then went 10-3-1, lost three straight and ended that streak with a 4-3 win over the St. Louis Blues Wednesday night. They blew a 3-0 lead in that game but won it on Tyler Bertuzzi’s second goal of the game, with 6:53 left.Bertuzzi was the hero on his bobblehead night.“He goes to the hard areas. He wins all the little stick battles,” said teammate Niklas Kronwall. “He doesn’t lose a lot of 50-50 battles on any given night. It’s nice to see him get rewarded. He always goes to the dirty areas. It’s great to see him get rewarded. There’s definitely more in there than we’ve seen so far. It’s great to see him get a couple tonight, a few big goals for us.”The Bruins gave Detroit its fifth straight loss to start the season when David Pastrnak had a hat trick and cleared the 100-goal career mark Oct. 13. But the Wings got some revenge with a 3-2 overtime win in Detroit on Nov. 21.If Cassidy continued his goalie rotation, it would be Halak (8-3-2, 2.06 goals against and .936 save percentage on the season), in goal Saturday. But Halak is just 7-6-2 with 3.51/.878 numbers lifetime against Detroit, so Rask gets his second straight start for the first time since Oct. 13 and 17.Rask, who appears to have cleared himself of his early season woes, is 13-5-3 with 2.57/.905 in the regular season against the Wings. He also went 4-1 against them in a 2014 playoff series, allowing six goals in five games. Rask was in goal for his team taking three of a possible four points from Detroit this season.Jimmy Howard, whose name has popped up in trade rumors, has been alternating with Jonathan Bernier and was the winner against St. Louis. Neither has a winning career record against Boston, but Howard’s 2.52 goals against is much better than Bernier’s 3.74. Howard is 6-6-3, Bernier 5-6-0.The Bruins expect to get Brandon Carlo (shoulder Matt Hendricks Jersey Womens , eight games) back Saturday, shoring up a defense that changes by the game (Charlie McAvoy, out with a concussion, is also close). Wings d-man Trevor Daley suffered a lower body injury Wednesday night and is expected to miss both games this weekend — the Wings hosting the Colorado Avalanche Sunday.David Krejci, who lost a tooth in Thursday night’s game — former teammate Johnny Boychuk returned one to him on the bench — was missing from practice Friday. He was apparently at the dentist.“I love Johnny. He’s a good guy. But that’s just weird,” Cassidy said.Ryan Donato, recalled from Providence for that game, had the shootout winning for the Bruins. LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Philadelphia Flyers know the importance of opening the season with a road victory.Wayne Simmonds scored two goals to lead Philadelphia to a 5-2 season-opening road win over the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night.It was the Flyers’ third straight season-opening victory in a Pacific Division city. Philadelphia has earned at least a point in each of its last four season openers (3-0-1).Oskar Lindblom, Robert Hagg and Scott Laughton also scored for the Flyers, one of seven NHL teams to win on the road during Thursday’s 10-game slate.“I think it’s tough sometimes when you open at your own rink,” Elliott said. “You have all the spectacles and the show, sometimes it takes away from your focus a little bit and the road team just has to come in and play (its) game.”And while the defending Western Conference champion Golden Knights’ scoring chances outweighed Philadelphia’s, 24-14, Flyers netminder Brian Elliott was outstanding in stopping 23 of the 25 shots he faced in front of an announced crowd of 18,555.Vegas’ Marc-Andre Fleury allowed five goals and stopped 11 of 16 shots before being replaced by Malcolm Subban with 9:49 left in the second period. Subban stopped all nine of the shots he saw.Vegas coach Gerard Gallant dispatched the notion about his team being distracted by the pre-game festivities, which included the raising of the Pacific Division and Western Conference championship banners.“I was excited and our players were excited to start at home tonight, it just didn’t go our way Womens Torey Krug Jersey ,” Gallant said. “I thought we played a real good 10 minutes to open the game up. We had a 1-0 lead and then (Shea) Theodore hit the crossbar, would have made it 2-0. After that they pretty well took over the game.”Jonathan Marchessault and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare were the only ones to score for Vegas, as the Flyers dominated the neutral zone.“We kind of just wanted to counter-attack their speed, that’s the way they play,” said Simmonds, who led the Flyers with four shots and seven hits. “They have their D jumping the rush a lot of times, and we figured if we could bust the zone we could keep their D back. It worked to our advantage and we kept pucks in and we went in and we got them.”Marchessault’s shot from the left dot gave the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead early in the first period, but Lindblom tied the game after making a nice move around Fleury’s left pad and a backhand into an empty net.Simmonds pounced on a loose puck sitting on the goal line, and poked it into the net to give the Flyers a 2-1 lead late in the first period. His second goal made it 3-1 early in the second period when he slipped a shot under a sprawled out Fleury.Simmonds has five goals in his last two season-openers.Later in the second period, it was Mikhail Vorobyev, in his NHL debut, starting a rush with a stretch pass to James van Riemsdyk, who then fed Hagg, who beat Fleury with a wrist shot to the glove side. Just 1:06 later, Laughton deflected Radko Gudas‘ shot from the point to make it 5-1.Bellemare netted a short-handed goal to cut Philadelphia’s lead to 5-2 with 11:32 left in the game.This marked the first of two games in nine days between these clubs. Vegas will visit the Flyers on October 13 to wrap up a five-game road trip that begins Saturday night.NOTES: Only in Las Vegas will you find crooner Wayne Newton and rapper Lil Jon simultaneously dropping the ceremonial first puck together pregame. … With his two assists, Jakub Voracek reached 400 points for his career. … Claude Giroux’s assist on Simmonds’ second goal moved him past Bill Barber for third on the Flyers’ all-time list with 464.UP NEXT:Philadelphia: Visits Colorado on Saturday.Vegas: Visits Minnesota on Saturday.
