Bruins goalie Tuuka Rask was outstanding in Toronto Monday night, turning aside 39 shots in regulation and overtime en route to the Bruins' 4-3 shootout victory over the Maple Leafs.
Rask's win enabled him to even up his record at 7-7-1. His goals-against average is now 2.94. His save percentage is .900. He hasn't enjoyed a Rask-like season so far but there were definite signs against the Maple Leafs that he's at least capable of resembling his old, reliable self. Nov 23 - 11:15 PM

Tuukka Rask blanked the Maple Leafs on 22 shots in the Bruins’ 2-0 win Saturday night.

Rask had a slim margin of error with both teams scoreless for so long, but he really didn’t have a tough night in terms of shot volume. Rask has started to right the ship ever so slightly, giving up one or no goals in three of his past five games. He has a 2.95 GAA and .896 SV%.

It's fair to expect Tuukka Rask to be in net for the Bruins against the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

Backup Jonas Gustavsson's locker was dressed in practice gear, heavily suggesting that it'll be Rask in net tonight. Unfortunately, he's 5-7-1 record with a 3.18 GAA and an .890 save percentage so far this season. Making him a dubious play even against the Leafs.
Nov 21 - 6:10 PM

Tuukka Rask allowed five goals on 28 shots in Boston's 5-4 loss to the San Jose Sharks.

Rask allowed two goals in the first period and three more in the second frame. The 28-year-old continues to struggle this season, dropping four of his last six games (2-4-0). He has allowed three or more goals in nine of his 13 starts this year. Following tonight's loss, Rask sports a 5-7-1 record with a 3.18 goals-against-average and an .890 save percentage.

Tuukka Rask will face the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday.

As his 5-6-1 record suggests, Rask continues to have an up-and-down season. He's seen at least three pucks beat him in three of his last five starts, and 36 overall in 12 starts. Mix in his .896 save percentage, and you may want to find a more favorable matchup tonight.
Nov 17 - 6:45 PM

Tukka Rask kicked out 22 of 23 shots in a 3-1 win versus Detroit on Saturday.

Updating a previous item, Tuukka Rask will indeed get the start in Saturday's game against Detroit.

Rask has dropped three of his last four contests and has a 4-6-1 record overall. The 28-year-old will enter this game with a 3.21 goals-against-average and a .892 save percentage.
Nov 14 - 6:13 PM

It is likely that Tuukka Rask will be in goal when the Bruins face off against the Red Wings Saturday night.

Of course, there is a chance that Boston coach Claude Julien opts to start Jonas Gustavsson against his former team, Detroit. That said, the Bruins need a home win in the worst way as they are 1-5-1 at TD Garden so far this season, and Julien may not fool around with sentimentality. Rask is coming off a 27-save, 3-2 loss to Colorado on Thursday.
Nov 14 - 8:24 AM

Tukka Rask allowed three goals on 30 shots as the Avalanche beat the Bruins 3-2 on Thursday night.

Rask falls to 4-6-1 this season with an .892 save percentage and 3.21 goals against average. Of the league's goaltenders, Rask is 21st in wins, 36th in save percentage and 37th in goals against average.
Nov 12 - 11:22 PM

Tuukka Rask is the probable starter for the Boston Bruins.

Boston will be up against Colorado, which Rask has an interesting history with. He has faced them four times and has posted a 1.98 GAA and .935 save percentage over those contests. Despite that, Rask has never beaten the Avalanche.
Nov 12 - 11:37 AM

Tuukka Rask stopped 36 of 37 shots in Sunday's 2-1 win over the New York Islanders.

Rask was excellent in this game and collected his first win of the month. The 28-year-old has had an up and down season, but he's now snapped his personal two-game losing streak. Rask was named the first star of the game. He has a 4-5-1 record with a 3.22 goals-against-average and a .891 save percentage. Boston will need more performances like this from their number one goalie.
Nov 8 - 8:02 PM

Tuukka Rask is expected to face the New York Islanders on Sunday.

After Jonas Gustavsson faced Montreal on Saturday, this one seems pretty safe. Unfortunately, Rask has allowed three or five goals in three of his past five starts as well. He owns a 3-5-1 record with 31 goals against in nine starts, with a troubling .876 save percentage.
Nov 8 - 1:20 PM

Tuukka Rask allowed three goals on 30 shots in Thursday night's loss to the Capitals for Boston's first road loss.

Rask falls to 3-5-1 this season with an .879 save percentage and 3.46 goals against average. Although Rask is on pace to set career-worst numbers, his talent is just too elite to assume the numbers won't improve down the stretch. He is a good buy-low candidate, although his numbers likely will not recover to where they have been for the past six years.
Nov 5 - 10:45 PM

Tuukka Rask will play between the pipes on Thursday.

Rask will attempt to bounce back after allowing five goals on 19 shots against Dallas Tuesday night. He has an uncharacteristic 3.51 GAA and .876 save percentage in eight contests in 2015-16.
