Look for Tuukka Rask to be more active in the Bruins' net this season.

Boston coach Bruce Cassidy wants Rask to come out of his net and clear out dump-ins with more regularity this season. "I’m not asking him to be a third defenseman, a la Marty Brodeur in his day, but to be able to get out there and stop some pucks and place them for the (defensemen). That would be one more threat and one more angle the forecheck has to take and that can help us," the coach said. "Have some confidence to get out there. I think Tuukka makes good decisions with it and handles it just fine, but I’d like to see him be a little more proactive in that regard." Perhaps that approach will help Rask's fantasy numbers a little.
