Tyler Seguin scored his first goal of the playoffs and added an assist Thursday, however the Bruins dropped a 4-3 overtime decision at Madison Square Garden.
The goal was the first in 11 postseason contests for Seguin and his first in 16 games dating back to the regular season. Nathan Horton also registered a goal and an assist in the loss while Torey Krug posted his third tally of the playoffs.
Jaromir Jagr was absent from practice Thursday morning, but he's expected to play in Game 4.
He participated in Wednesday's optional skate. Expect Jagr to be back alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand on Thursday night after Carl Soderberg skated in his place in the morning. He has no goals and four assists in 10 playoff games.
Tuukka Rask isn't bothered that his play isn't being trumpeted from the rooftops in some circles.
"I don't care," he said Wednesday. "I know that people are saying our defensive system helps me out and stuff like that. And most of the time I'm in the right position and the saves look easy. I like it that way." After 10 games, Rask's pace is similar to the numbers that Tim Thomas ended up with during Boston's run to the Stanley Cup in 2011. Rask currently has a .930 save percentage and a 2.19 GAA and he has been a difference maker at key times during the playoffs. He hasn't give up much against the Rangers in Round 2 and continues to build his case to earn a lucrative contract extension in the off-season.
Dennis Seidenberg (lower body) took part in an optional session on Wednesday and said there's a chance he could be ready to play in Game 4.
"There's a chance for sure," he said after the skate. "But you don't want to come back too early. We'll see how it feels [Thursday] and go from there." There is also the possibility that the Bruins may hold him out of the lineup for Game 4 because the team's defense has performed so well against the Rangers in the series.
