Uniondale, NY (SportsNetwork. Nikola Jokic Jersey .com) - Tuukka Rask made 43 saves, Milan Lucic and Reilly Smith tallied three points each and the Boston Bruins beat the New York Islanders 5-2 on Thursday. Lucic and Smith each had a goal and two assists to help Boston win for the seventh time in its last nine games. Patrice Bergeron, Kevan Miller and Torey Krug also scored for the Bruins. The Islanders got goals from John Tavares and Michael Grabner but had a two- game winning streak snapped. Jaroslav Halak allowed four goals on 32 shots. With just 3.4 seconds to go in the second period, Halak made a crucial mistake handling the puck. Miller knocked down Halaks weak clearing attempt at the blue line, and he wasted no time ripping a shot on goal that beat Halak to break a 2-2 tie. Boston did not even need two minutes in the third period to extend its lead to two. With traffic in front of the net, Krugs wrister from the blue line found its way to the back of the net for his 10th goal of the season. Rask stopped all 14 third-period shots from the Islanders, and Lucics 10th goal of the season on an empty net sealed the win. The Islanders controlled play early, but the Bruins lit the lamp first. Smith drove to the net, and Lucics pass from the boards went between a defenders legs to Smiths stick where he redirected the puck past Halak. Just two minutes later, Boston got its first power play of the game and cashed in. Bergeron skated down from the blue line with the puck and used nifty puck-handling to create a shooting lane before wristing a shot off the post and into the net. It took a tremendous individual effort from Tavares to finally beat Rask in the second period. From center ice, Tavares chipped the puck in the air toward Rask, and the goalie could not handle it cleanly. Tavares skated through the defense and backhanded the puck in for New Yorks first goal of the game. Grabners fifth goal of the season tied the game later in the period. Johnny Boychuk held a clearing attempt in the zone, and Grabner deflected Boychuks wrist shot past Rask. Game Notes Tavares has scored in four straight games and has four goals and five assists in a five-game point streak ... Boychuks assist was his 100th NHL point ... Islanders defenseman Nick Leddy played in his 300th consecutive game ... New Yorks Frans Nielsen lost his five-game point streak ...

ARLINGTON, Texas -- These Pittsburgh Pirates keep saying their goal this season was always bigger than just having a winning record. The American League better watch out if they are able to make it to their first World Series since 1979. Clint Barmes homered and drew a bases-loaded walk as the Pirates completed a three-game series sweep in an interleague matchup of wild-card leaders with a 7-5 victory Wednesday over the slumping Texas Rangers. "You see how close this race is, so thats the way weve been taking it every day," Barmes said. "And I dont see that changing." The Pirates (84-61), who ensured their first winning season since 1992 with a victory in the opener at Texas, finished the series with their ninth consecutive interleague road victory. They were 15-5 overall during the regular season against AL teams. "Thats a big-time record," manager Clint Hurdle said. "Theyre challenging because theyre like pop quizzes. You got to watch video and maybe youve seen them. I had a little history here with a few of the hitters. Its just been the way weve been able to show up." Swept in three games at St. Louis last weekend, the Pirates remained a game behind the NL Central-leading Cardinals, who beat Milwaukee 5-1 on Wednesday night. "The thing Im most impressed with is our consistency, our focus and our preparation," Hurdle said. "It doesnt waver. We didnt come here with sweep on our mind. We came in here to win the first game." Texas (81-64) has dropped nine of its last 12 games, a stretch in which the Rangers have lost four consecutive series. They have gone from a three-game lead in the AL West to three behind Oakland after the Athletics won 18-3 at Minnesota on Wednesday night. Oakland finishes its series against the Twins on Thursday, when the Rangers have their last scheduled day off, before a three-game weekend series in Texas between the AL Wests top two teams. "Well be fine," second baseman Ian Kinsler said. "Weve got an off day and then come back ready to play. Its all we can do." In the NL wild-card standings, the Pirates are two games ahead of Cincinnati, which is holding the second wild card. For the AL wild card, the Rangers are 2 1/2 games ahead of No. 2 Tampa Bay. Justin Morneau, acquired from Minnesota less than two weeks ago, snapped an 0-for-14 slump with four hits while scoring twice for Pittsburgh. " We got outplayed in every aspect of the game in St. Louiis," Morneau said. Trey Lyles Jersey. "To come back and have a short memory and forget about that, I think thats a sign of a good team when you can bounce back." A.J. Burnett (8-10) struck out seven in 6 1-3 innings, though he faded late after retiring the first 13 batters he faced. Kyle Farnsworth, the fourth Pittsburgh reliever, worked the ninth for his first save since 2011. Matt Garza (3-4 with Texas, 9-5 overall) needed 89 pitches to get through four innings and left down 3-0. He struck out six, but also walked four and gave up five hits. Garza, acquired July 22 from the Chicago Cubs to bolster the Rangers rotation, is 0-2 his last four starts. "I feel fine, just didnt have location and paid for it," Garza said. Felix Pie had a leadoff walk in the third, stole second and scored on Neil Walkers single. The Pirates loaded the bases in the fourth before Barmes drew a walk, and another run came home on a fielders choice after shortstop Elvis Andrus bobbled a likely double-play grounder. Barmes solo homer in the eighth that made it 7-5 was the only home run hit by either team in the series. With his breaking ball working, Burnett struck out five the first two innings and didnt allow a base runner until A.J. Pierzynskis one-out double in the fifth. "Thats about the only time it was effective. I started to lose it toward the end," Burnett said. "My arm started dragging a little bit. But I just wanted to come out and set the tone and keep it going." That first hit by Pierzynski might have been caught if Gold Glove centre fielder Andrew McCutchen wasnt getting a day off. The ball went over the outstretched glove of Pie. Burnett gave up five hits and walked two over the last 10 batters he faced. After the bottom two batters in the Rangers lineup walked to start the sixth, they scored when Andrus got a single that ricocheted off shortstop Barmes glove into short left as he tried to make a backhanded stop. Notes: Texas was 10-10 in interleague play. ... Suspended Rangers slugger Nelson Cruz started workouts Wednesday at the teams spring training complex in Arizona with full defensive drills and batting practice. Instructional league games begin next Wednesday. Cruzs 50-game suspension, through the end of the regular season, came after Major League Baseballs investigation into the Biogenesis clinic in Florida accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs.
