Bruins lose to Rangers in overtime, 4-3
NEW YORK — The Rangers were desperate. They had dropped their first two games. Henrik Lundqvist was pulled against Pittsburgh Monday.

Just three matches into the 48-game season, Rangers coach John Tortorella made a desperate call by putting his top three guns together: Marian Gaborik, Brad Richards, and Rick Nash. The move worked.

Bruins power play breaks through
The Bruins had entered the game 0 for 9 on the power play. In two opportunities against Winnipeg Monday, Julien counted six scoring chances.

Hamilton praisedThe Bruins didn’t get as many quality sniffs in their five power plays against the Rangers. But Julien credited Hamilton, not just for the shot that led to the goal, but his overall game.

“Not good. Outstanding,” Julien said of the first-year defenseman. “He was so poised and confident. If anybody thinks he can’t play in this league, they should take some time to watch this game. I really, really liked his game. Not just defensively, but offensively, he made a great play on the power-play goal. In the last two seconds, he’s poised with the puck, he just gets it out, and doesn’t turn it over. I don’t know what more to say about this guy. I think his teammates see the Dougie Hamilton that everybody’s projecting. Right now, we’ve got to keep him going with lots of confidence. That’s what he’s shown. It’s paying off.”

Bruins point to positives
In a rematch of the season opener, the Rangers and Bruins staged a game with playoff-like intensity that produced some terrific plays by New York’s abundantly talented first line, terrific goaltending from Tuukka Rask to steal a point and a little moxie from the B’s after the Rangers came out of the gate breathing fire.

Objectively speaking, the only disappointment was that it ended so quickly in overtime when Marian Gaborik completed his hat trick just 27 seconds into the extra session. A Chris Kelly pass bounced over Andrew Ference’s stick at the Rangers blue line, effectively teeing it up for the speedy Gaborik.

Tuukka Rask firmly entrenched .
Rask’s saves allowed the Bruins to reach overtime, salvaging a point on a night when they came out flat and fell into a 2-0 hole on a pair of Gaborik goals in the first seven minutes.

“It was huge,” Lucic said of Rask’s effort. “He’s played real solid for us these first three games. We said it before, we’re not looking at the past, we’re looking at the future with what Tuukka can bring to this team and he’s showed that so far.”

Long layoff hasn’t hurt Nathan Horton .
That’s a scary history, but one that Horton has been able to set aside during his return.

“I haven’t even thought of it,” Horton said before last night’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. “It’s a non-issue. Especially when you feel good, you don’t really have to think about it.”

That attitude allowed Horton to seamlessly regain his place on the first line alongside center David Krejci and left winger Milan Lucic

Dougie Hamilton’s play is ‘outstanding’
“Anybody who saw this game tonight had to see this guy was outstanding. Not good. Outstanding,” Julien said. “He was so poised and confident. If anyone thinks he can’t play in this league, they should watch this game.”

Hamilton didn’t take a lot of joy in his milestone.

“It was the first road game, pretty cool for it to be here and it was pretty nice to get that (point). But it sucks losing,” he said.

so, little confused.....Hamilton staying??

Still need to temper my excitement, there will be times the kid looks..... well... like a kid, gotta say though, his poise on the blueline during the PP has been refreshing to see, changes the entire complexion of that PP, an element of having a 4th forward that other teams will start really worrying about
