Marchand is leading the team with 27 points entering play on Tuesday, while Rask has been a human wall in the crease and bouncing back from what was a little bit of a down year in 2015-16. His .932 save percentage is good enough to get him into the top-10 among the league’s goalies this year.
Early in the first period of their game against the New York Islanders on Tuesday night they had a little bit of a communication problem.
As Rask was making a play on the puck behind the net, he could not get out of the way in time as Marchand came flying around. That resulted in a collision between the two players setting up Anders Lee for an easy tap-in goal.
Probably not the way the Bruins drew that play up.
New York added to its lead a few minutes later on a Thomas Hickey goal.
