Darling goes again

Scott Darling will make his third consecutive start tonight when Chicago takes on the B’s at TD Garden.

Darling, who has spent the majority of this season in AHL Rockford, has been tremendous when called upon — especially in his latest stint with Corey Crawford (ankle) sidelined. The 25-year-old has gone 4-1-0 with a 1.76 GAA and .939 save percentage in five games this season and emerged the victor in each of his previous two starts: a 3-1 win over Nashville (32 saves) and a 3-2 shootout win over the Devils (22 saves).

For the Bruins, Tuukka Rask will get the nod in goal.
