NEW YORK (AP) — Tuukka Rask made 43 saves — including a stop on a first-period penalty shot — and the Boston Bruins spoiled the return of New York forward Rick Nash in a 2-1 victory over the Rangers on Tuesday night.

Rask, playing on back-to-back days for the first time this season, denied Chris Kreider’s penalty shot and turned away everything else except for Derick Brassard’s power-play goal in the second.

Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille, with his 10th career short-handed goal, provided all the offense Rask needed in the second period as the Bruins (14-6-1) finished a 2-1 road trip after winning at Carolina on Monday.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 20 shots, but most of the action was at the other end.
