Goaltender Tuukka Rask turned in a good game but he and the Boston Bruins fell 3-2 in overtime to the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins Monday night.
Rask stopped 28 shots before Evgeni Malkin beat him on a 2-on-1. This was 32 seconds into the OT period. Rask's record is now 10-6-1. His goals-against average is 2.40. His save percentage, .915. Rask could easily have come out of Monday's game with a win as Boston had two goals disallowed. He, of course, remains a solid fantasy option in net. Nov 24 - 10:26 PM

Tuukka Rask dropped another game to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Rask's record now falls to 3-12-3 against Montreal his career. The 27-year-old has been an elite goaltender since taking over the number one job for Boston, but Montreal seems to get the best of him more often than not. Rask is still a solid fantasy goaltender, but he may not collect as many wins as some might expect because the Bruins are decimated with injuries right now.
Nov 23 - 12:33 PM

Tuukka Rask yielded two goals on 23 shots in the Bruins’ 2-0 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday night.

These are the types of games that the full-strength Bruins don’t lose. Boston easily out-possessioned the Canadiens, but goalie Carey Price was simply better. Rask gave up one goal on even strength and one via the penalty kill, where the Bruins entered 20th in the league. Rask has a 2.36 goals-against average and .915 save percentage this season.
Nov 22 - 10:50 PM

Look for Tuukka Rask to be in goal Saturday night when the Bruins face off against the Canadiens.

Niklas Svedberg started won Friday night against Columbus in the first game of a back-to-back situation this weekend so Rask will get the call Saturday. Rask is coming off a fine 2-0 win over the Blues Tuesday night but he has a weak life-time record against Montreal (3-11-3, 2.80 GAA and .902 SP). We might consider sitting him if you have a reasonable alternative.

Tuukka Rask and the Bruins shut down St. Louis on Tuesday by registering a 2-0 shutout win.

Rask blocked all 33 shots he faced in the victory, which represents his first shutout of the year and his 10th win, bringing his record to 10-5-0. Despite a slow start to the campaign, he has turned things around to the tune of a 2.38 GAA and .915 save percentage.

Tuukka Rask will take the ice against the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night.

Rask will be tasked with back stopping an offense that has scored just 24 goals over their last nine games, albeit they've won six of those games. He hasn't been his usual stellar self this season either, posting a mere .908 save percentage and 2.56 GAA. Plus Boston will be without Brad Marchand tonight.
Nov 18 - 6:34 PM

Tuukka Rask stopped 33 of 34 shots he faced in Boston's 2-1 win over Carolina on Saturday afternoon.

Rask's steady play in goal was one of the key reasons the Bruins were able to pick up the win today. It's a nice bounce-back performance by Rask after he allowed four goals on 16 shots against Toronto earlier this week. The 27-year-old was the first star of the hockey game. With several injuries to key players, the Bruins will need Rask to stay on top of his game if they want to have a shot at winning the division.
Nov 15 - 4:00 PM

Look for Tuukka Rask to get the start Saturday afternoon against Carolina.

Niklas Svedberg gave Rask the night off against Montreal on Thursday after Rask suffered a terrible 6-1 loss to his former club, Toronto, Wednesday night. We expect Rask to rebound in a big way Saturday afternoon against an offensively-challenged Hurriance squad before a noisy Boston crowd. Make sure Rask is active early as the game starts at 1:00 pm EST.
Nov 15 - 8:31 AM

Boston goalie Tuukka Rask had a night to forget in the Bruins' 6-1 loss to the Maple Leafs in Toronto Wednesday.

The usually reliable netminder was pulled from the game at 3:32 of the second period, after a tip-in goal by Toronto center Tyler Bozak made it 4-0 for the Leafs. Rask, who had been playing well in October with a 4-0-0 record, allowed four goals on 16 Toronto shots. He was replaced by Niklas Svedberg, who stopped 15 of the 17 shots he faced. Rask took the loss and is 8-5-0 on the season. His goals-against average is 2.69 and his save percentage, .901. Svedberg's GAA is 1.87. He has a save percentage of .933.
Nov 12 - 11:10 PM

Tuukka Rask should be considered the probable starter for Boston on Wednesday night.

The Bruins called their starting netminder a game-time decision, but Rask didn't take part in the team's optional practice in the morning and he owns a great record against the Maple Leafs. Conversely, he has struggled versus Canadiens in his career and Boston visits Montreal on Thursday. Niklas Svedberg may start in that game.
Nov 12 - 4:24 PM

Goaltender Tuukka Rask had a solid outing Monday night in helping the Boston Bruins beat the visiting New Jersey Devils 4-2.

Rask steered aside 26 of the 28 shots the Devils fired at him. After a less-than-stellar October, Rask appears to be back to his usual reliable self. He is 8-4-0 on the season. His goals-against average is 2.44, compared with the 2.82 GAA he had in October. He has won four consecutive games in November and has allowed only seven goals in those four victories. His save percentage is now .909.
Nov 10 - 10:11 PM

Tuukka Rask blocked 24 of the 26 shots he faced in the Bruins' 5-2 win over Edmonton on Thursday night.

Rask simply wasn't himself in October, going 4-4 with an .899 save percentage and 2.82 goals against average. With three straight wins to start off November, it appears the reigning Vezina winner is back on track. He has allowed just five goals during those three wins.
Nov 6 - 9:59 PM

Tuukka Rask was sharp on Tuesday night as he turned away 18 of 19 shots en route to a 2-1 overtime victory against the Panthers.

Rask has not posted the kind of stats his fantasy owners have come to expect of him just yet, but his last two outings have definitely been steps in the right direction. He now owns a 6-4-0 record to go along with a 2.53 GAA and a .906 save percentage.
Nov 4 - 9:46 PM

Tuukka Rask kicked away 27 shots in the Bruins’ 4-2 win over the Senators on Saturday night.

Rask has returned to form after a sluggish start to the season. A 2.72 goals-against average and .902 save percentage isn’t near what we’d expect from him, though that should improve to elite status pretty soon.
Nov 1 - 11:20 PM

Look for Tuukka Rask to get the call against Ottawa Saturday night.

He got the night off against the Sabres Thursday as Niklas Svedberg held Buffalo to two goals on 15 shots. Rask is coming off a 4-3 loss to Minnesota on Tuesday and would like to get back on a winning track. Activate Rask if you had reserved him earlier this week.
