Bruins' two quick goals make it 4-3 Boston

As Joe wrote in the chat, A 4-on-2 is rarely a good thing. The Bruins scored a tying goal on an out-of-position Buffalo Sabres team and Ryan Miller was way too aggressive to react to a one-timer that eventually found Michael Ryder’s stick.

The surge continued as I was putting this post together, a Zdeno Chara point shot was deflected nicely by David Krejci, suddenly giving the Boston Bruins a 4-3 lead. Darren Pang thinks that the shot also could have gone off of the stick of Buffalo Sabres forward Jason Pominville.
Rarely do the Bruins get things done in a pretty way, but they sure are pesky. Buffalo is on a powerplay, so we’ll keep you updated.

    Wild lose Graovac (groin) for 2-3 weeks

    After making the Wild out of training camp, Tyler Graovac got some bad news on Tuesday — head coach Mike Yeo said Graovac would miss the next 2-3 weeks with a groin strain.

    Graovac, 22, played just under 14 minutes in Minnesota’s crazy 5-4 comeback win over Colorado in the season-opener, but sat out Saturday’s win over St. Louis.

    At 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds, Graovac was a notable physical presence in the Wild lineup, and is an intriguing prospect — he impressed with AHL Iowa last year, scoring 21 goals and 46 points in 73 games.

    Already without Eberle, the Oilers could also be missing Hall tonight

    Taylor Hall

    Taylor Hall is sick and reportedly “doubtful” for tonight’s game in Dallas.

    Hall did not skate with the Oilers this morning. If he can’t play, Edmonton’s top two lines against the Stars could feature Ryan Nugent-Hopkins between wingers Teddy Purcell and Benoit Pouliot, followed by Connor McDavid centering Lauri Korpikoski and Nail Yakupov.

    The Oilers — forced to start the season without top-six winger Jordan Eberle — have scored just once in their first two games, losing 3-1 in St. Louis and 2-0 in Nashville.

    Edmonton returns home after tonight’s contest to play St. Louis on Thursday. Then it’s back out on the road for games against Calgary and Vancouver.
