He's among the leaders with 39 Quality Starts and eight Really Bad Starts, as well.

It turns out Tuukka Rask exited Saturday's game against the Rangers because of a migraine and not dehydration.

"It ended up being one of those situations where it was more prudent to keep him out," coach Claude Julien said. "With the score being what it was, there was no reason to try and rush him back. He was fine today." Rask was back in goal on Sunday and looked fine again in a 2-1 overtime victory.

The Boston Bruins say goalie Tuukka Rask is fine after leaving a 4-2 win against the Rangers Saturday afternoon because he apparently was dehydrated.

Bruins coach Claude Julien said Rask is all right and would travel with the Bruins for their game against the Carolina Hurricanes Sunday. Rask could start against the Hurricanes, Julien said. "It looks like it might have been a case of dehydration, so he’s scheduled to travel with us," the coach said. "He’s scheduled to be with us and he should be fine for [Sunday]." Rask, who left 10 seconds into the second period with Boston leading 3-0, had informed the Bruins during the first intermission that he wasn’t feeling well. "Yeah, we just found out at the beginning of the second," Julien said. "He went in there and when he came off that’s why I went to him and said, ‘Are you still having those symptoms?’ He said, 'Yeah,’ so I said, ‘Well, let’s get you out of here and put [Niklas Svedberg] in,’ who did a good job by the way." Rask had 14 saves; Svedberg, 16.

Rask stopped all of the 14 shots he faced, but he left early in the second period and did not return with what's been labeled as dehydration. Niklas Svedberg played the rest of the game, but the Rangers only managed two goals, so Rask gets the win.
