Bruins beat the Blackhawks to win all six games of the homestand

The B's scurried off to catch their chartered flight Saturday afternoon after a 7-4 decision over the Blackhawks at TD Garden, which made them just the seventh team in National Hockey League history to complete a 6-0-0 homestand.

To hear Jack Edwards' and Andy Brickley's breakdown of the power play and the Bruins' win, check out the "NESN Sports Today" video above, presented by People's United Bank.

"It might be 1-A and 1-B now", Cassidy said of his power-play units.

"Fatigue, right? I mean, the other group gets - first of all, they get discouraged because it can't get it out, then you get exhausted, and that's when mistakes are made, and that's when seams open up", Cassidy noted. His 10-foot laser at 14:10 beat Berube with Nick Holden also assisting for a point in each of his four games on Causeway Street.

The Blackhawks struck first on the man advantage in this one. However, how can you pick the Chicago Blackhawks with the way they've played the last couple of months.

Forsberg blocked a deflection by Rick Nash 4:30 into the third, then stopped the Boston forward at the edge of the crease with a pad save later in the same shift.

"Gio [Gionta] was really good tipping the pucks and battling in front and he got rewarded", Krejci said about the new power-play combo.

Sean Kuraly put the proverbial top on the sundae with an open netter with 22 ticks left; Tim Schaller and Zdeno Chara assisting. "We were trying to avoid each other so I don't think so". The last time that these two teams played was on January 1st, a game where the won. "I think that's a great sign in a team".

"He's day-to-day and we'll see how he is for Tuesday".

Chicago led from the 7:26 mark of the first period as Artem Anisimov deflected a point shot past Bruins netminder Anton Khudobin for a 1-0 lead.

The stat of the Hawks only winning 12 of the 35 games they have been without Corey Crawford just shows how valuable the Blackhawks goalie is to the franchise.

In an afternoon tilt that did not feature Tuukka Rask's best (the birthday boy allowed four goals on 27 shots against), the lift from the B's power play was more than appreciated.

Highmore broke a 3-3 tie by sending a wrist shot from the right circle that beat Rask inside the far post with 4:14 left in the second period.

All four of Chicago's goals came 5-on-5. Duclair fell awkwardly to the ice and left the game without returning due to an undisclosed injury, which appeared to be to his knee.

Marchand's history of suspensions and reputation for dirty play led to questions of whether he'd hear from the NHL's Department of Player Safety over the incident.

"Their power play was excellent in the third", Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said.

"I just think this time of the year you're playing teams in different circumstances - teams will get loose and some are tight", Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said.

"At this point, I think everybody is sore", Rask said postgame dismissing any concern.

"I was coming up ice and I think he was coming down the forecheck and we both got caught in the train tracks", Marchand followed, "and we both didn't know which direction to go, but we just kind of tried to avoid each other".

Marchand, who got fined $2,000 for diving/embellishment in a prior game, isn't expecting a call.

The Bruins close their home-and-home with the Blackhawks tomorrow. Marchand was assessed a minor for interference at the time.
