Organizational Development Speaks Volumes in Bruins Win Over Predators

Organizational Development Speaks Volumes in Bruins Win Over Predators

The names on the score sheet will only tell you so much. For an injury-depleted Boston Bruins team, it’s more than just goals, assists, and saves–it’s where they came from.

Out of the 19 players that the Bruins dressed on Thursday night, 11 have spent time playing with the Providence Bruins, Boston’s AHL affiliate. Six of them played an important role in Thursday’s 3-2 overtime win against the Nashville Predators. One of them picked up his first career NHL win in his first start with Boston.

Tuukka Rask Gets Number 20 in Bruins Win

The Boston Bruins’ 5-0 win over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night meant a little something more than just another tally in the win column.

For Reilly Smith, who scored twice in the third period, it was the game where he gained the lead in goals scored for the Bruins with his 14 tallies. For the team itself, thanks to Smith’s two scores, it was the first time since December of 1929 that a Bruin has scored at least two or more goals in seven straight games. For Tuukka Rask, the 33-save shutout was enough to earn him his 20th win of the season, a milestone he has only hit once before in his NHL career.

2013-14 Bruins Season Predictions Part 4: Goaltending Could Be An Issue

Rask has never started more than 45 games in a season and is now responsible for the bulk of a full, normal campaign. If Rask gets injured or his play begins to slip, who’s there to back him up? An unproven goalie who only has AHL experience, albeit excellent, or a career minor-league journeyman who isn’t even seeing time in preseason games? It’s a little puzzling.
