New York • 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.

Predators 2, Red Wings 0 • Rookie Marek Mazanec made 27 saves to earn his first shutout and the Nashville Predators extended the Detroit Red Wings' skid to seven games with a 2-0 victory on Monday night.

Shea Weber and Gabriel Bourque scored for Nashville.

The Red Wings' home slide reached eight games (0-6-2).
