Tuukka Rask allowed three goals on 27 shots in a 4-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Rask seemed to be in complete control of this game entering the second period, but once Zdeno Chara left the game with an injury, the Bruins struggled mightily to get the puck out of their own end. The loss drops his record to 11-3-0 with a 1.57 goals against average and a .942 save percentage. He is always a must start in the fantasy community but keep an eye on his play if Chara misses an extended period of time.

Tuukka Rask faced only 12 shots and blocked 11 as the Boston Bruins defeated the Winnipeg Jets 4-1 Saturday night.

Rask bounced back from a shutout loss to the Minnesota Wild Thursday night. His win again the Jets was his fifth victory in his last six starts, however, and he had a pair of shutouts of his own in that span. Saturday night’s save percentage of .917 was slightly lower than his season-mark of .947, but that was more a factor of the Jets’ anemic shooting than his ability to stop the puck.

Despite the loss, Rask continues to be one of the best goalies in the NHL this year. He has a 10-2-0 record with a 1.49 goals-against-average and a .947 save percentage. He's a must-start in all fantasy leagues.
