Bruins

FINAL SCORE: Bruins 4, Stars 3

IN BRIEF: Nick Ritchie scores his first goal as a Bruin, David Pastrnak scores his 46th of the season, and the Boston Bruins snap a two-game losing streak to the Dallas Stars. Ritchie also added an assist on Pastrnak's goal, and played much better than in his Bruins debut. Unfortunately, Ondrej Kase didn't produce, but it was his first game back from injury on top of playing with a new team. The Bruins managed to widen the gap in the Atlantic Division as the Tampa Bay Lightning lost their fourth straight to the Chicago Blackhawks.
