The Boston Bruins were back on home ice on Tuesday when they welcomed the Arizona Coyotes into the Garden.

The Boston Bruins (32-24-6) were back on home ice to welcome the Arizona Coyotes (22-32-7) to the TD Garden ice.

Before the puck dropped, the Bruins honored Trooper Thomas Clardy on First Responder's Night at the Garden. Clardy was tragically killed last March and left behind his wife and five kids. His youngest son dropped the puck at center ice.

The Bruins won their seventh out of eight possible games under interim head coach Bruce Cassidy on Tuesday night with a 4-1 win.

In the first:

It took just over three minutes for the scoring to get started for the home team when Colin Miller was fed a beautiful pass from David Pastrnak to light the lamp for the 1-0 lead.

That was the only goal through the first 20 minutes of play and the B’s would take the one-goal lead into the locker room.

In the second:

The next 20 minutes had much more action, starting with Arizona tying the game at one three-and-a-half minutes into the period when Peter Holland beat Tuukka Rask.

Just two minutes later, Colin Miller laid a huge, clean hit on Alex Burmistrov and he was motionless for several minutes on the ice before he was taken off on a stretcher. Colin Miller was ejected but Burmistrov gave the double thumbs up to the crowd and was taken to a nearby hospital for further evaluation.

Boston would score three more times to blow open the lead with help from Riley Nash, David Backes and Brad Marchand, who scored with 10 seconds left in the second.

The B’s took a comfortable three-goal lead into the final intermission.

In the third:

The Coyotes made a goalie change and it proved to be successful through the entire final period, as the Bruins would not put up anymore goals. 

However, the same could be said about Arizona and the Bruins would skate off the ice with a 4-1 win and are now 7-1 under Cassidy.

My three stars:

3) Colin Miller for getting the scoring started. Despite the ejection, he was having a great game.

2) Brad Marchand for continuing to be a force for this team and scoring yet another goal.

1) Tuukka Rask for being absolutely dominant throughout the game.

What's Bruin next:

The Bruins will take on the New York Rangers on Thursday as they continue their homestand. Puck drop is set for 7:00 p.m.
