Tuukka Rask posted a .915 save percentage in 2015-16.
That's well below his career average of .924. He also posted an .829 high-danger save percentage, according to war-on-ice.com, which tied him with Carolina's Cam Ward. That isn't an elite performance from a goalie who is the third-highest paid player at his position in the league. He is unlikely to be traded by the Bruins, so he'll have to find a way to get back to his prior form next season. Apr 19 - 9:49 AM

Tuukka Rask said he started to feel ill on Friday night prior to missing Saturday afternoon's season finale against Ottawa.

"I spent the night in the bathroom there for 12 hours so," Rask said. "You can't control that. ...I knew I wasn't going to play, but I just went out there until (Jeremy Smith) got back here. When you're sick, you're sick. But trust me, if I felt I could help the team, I would have gone out there. But I couldn't even stand up." He was well off his career marks of a .924 save percentage and a 2.24 goals-against average, while posting a .915 save percentage and a 2.56 GAA in 64 appearances.

Tuukka Rask is likely sick or injured as he will not start in a must win game Saturday afternoon against Ottawa.

He was originally listed as the starter but Jonas Gustavsson is now starting in his place. This is big news as the Bruins need to win to make the playoffs.
Apr 9 - 12:05 PM

We would be shocked if Tuukka Rask was not the starter Saturday afternoon against the Senators.

The Bruins need to win to keep their playoff hopes alive and Boston coach Claude Julien will no doubt go with his best goalie for this contest. Rask is coming off a very easy 13-save shutout over Detroit and has a 31-22-8 record with a 2.56 goals against average and .915 save percentage for the season. We would start Rask for this one.
Apr 9 - 8:07 AM

Tuukka Rask needed just 13 saves to secure a victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night.

Rask improves to 31-22-8 this season with a 2.56 goals against average and .915 save percentage. Rask has declined for two straight seasons.
Apr 8 - 1:05 AM

Tuukka Rask will get the start in Thursday's game against the Red Wings.

It's a huge game for the Bruins, as a loss would all but eliminate them from postseason contention. Rask has a 30-23-7 record this season.
Apr 7 - 7:05 PM

Tuukka Rask was outplayed in a tough 2-1 shootout loss by Cam Ward and Carolina on Tuesday.

Rask turned away 27 of 28, including all seven on special teams then four of five in the shootout. Unfortunately, Rask allowed the only goal of the shootout which currently places Boston outside the playoff bubble. He's now 30-23-7 on the season.
Apr 5 - 11:44 PM

Tuukka Rask will face Carolina on Tuesday night.

Rask is 1-0-1 in two games against the Hurricanes this season, allowing just four goals on 68 combined shots. With a playoff ticket left to punch, we'd expect Boston and Rask to put forth a great effort.
Apr 5 - 6:32 PM

Tuukka Rask has been pulled from Sunday's game against the Blackhawks after giving up four goals on 22 shots.

Rask was pulled 22 minutes into the game. In his defence, he didn't play horrible hockey. The Blackhawks scored one lucky goal, a breakaway goal, and a two-on-one. Jonas Gustavsson has entered the game for the Bruins. Rask posted a 10.91 GAA and a .818 save percentage in this contest. The Bruins are making the right decision pulling Rask as they need him to start all three of their upcoming games this week.
Apr 3 - 1:40 PM

Tuukka Rask will get the start in Sunday's matinee against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Rask won his last start on Friday even though he allowed five goals to the Blues. The 29-year-old has a 30-22-7 record with a 2.55 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage in 2015-16.
Apr 3 - 12:05 PM

With his 6-5 win over St. Louis on Friday, Tuukka Rask now has 30 wins for the third straight season.

It's also his 100th win over that span. Through 310 starts and 327 career games, Rask boasts a 166-103-42 record with a .924 save percentage and a 2.45 GAA. Pretty darn good.
Apr 2 - 12:22 AM

The 29-year-old is now the owner of a 29-22-7 record, a 2.51 goals-against-average and a .918 save percentage. Rask has had a bit of a rough go as of late, going 1-4-0 over his last five games. On the bright side, he hasn't allowed more than three goals in any of those contests.
Mar 29 - 10:18 PM

Tuukka Rask will face New Jersey on Tuesday night.

Believe it or not, this will be the first time this season that Rask is facing New Jersey. Boston is in a near must-win situation with just a point up on Detroit for third in the Metropolitan division. Rask is 12-6-3 in 23 games with 55 goals against and a .920 save percentage since the beginning of February.
