NHL roundup: Bruins' Tuukka Rask logs 300th win

Brad Marchand scored twice and Tuukka Rask recorded his 300th career win as the host Boston Bruins defeated the New York Islanders 4-1 on Thursday.

Craig Smith scored a power-play goal in the first period and Taylor Hall tallied in the third for the Bruins, who defeated the Islanders for the first time in six meetings this season.

Rask made 22 saves in his return to action since exiting after the first period of the Bruins' 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders on March 25 with an upper-body injury.

Sam Reinhart, Victor Olofsson and Casey Mittelstadt also scored for the Sabres, who improved to 5-2-2 in the nine games since ending their 18-game losing streak.

Troy Stecher notched the first two-goal game of his career and Jakub Vrana scored in his Detroit debut in a win over visiting Chicago.

Miro Heiskanen and Joe Pavelski also scored while Jake Oettinger made 17 saves to improve to 4-0-1 against the Blue Jackets this season.
