Tuukka Rask went to concussion protocol after taking a Roman Josi shot to the neck area on Thursday night.

"I guess I shouldn’t be turning my head sideways," Rask said. "When you do that, you kind of expose that side of your neck. But when it’s coming at you 100 miles per hour you can’t help but react a certain way, and I got it right there. It got a little piece of my jaw, too, and I was going through the concussion test. And I had to make sure the breathing was normal." All indications are that Rask avoided serious injury on the play. The Bruins and Rask's fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief.

Coach Claude Julien didn't say much about Tuukka Rask after Thursday's contest against Nashville.

He just stated that Rask was hit "in the throat area" and would be evaluated further. That means we probably won't get an update on his status until later on Friday. However, it was a bit encouraging when Rask said after the contest, "I'll be all right." Stay tuned.
