Tuukka Rask might be turning a corner after a rough beginning to the campaign.

Rask limited the dangerous Tampa Bay Lightning to two goals on Wednesday and then posted a 28-save shutout against the Flyers on Saturday. "Tuukka looked as comfortable as I’ve seen him all year. He was efficient in the net," said Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy after Saturday's game. "I sound like a broken record, but we need both goalies playing well and especially your No. 1 [needs that.] For him to find his game, feel good about it and get wins, I’m sure he’s feeling really good about his game. He should be. I thought he looked comfortable and square. It didn’t look like they were going to get anything by him, at least that’s what I saw." Rask still has a ways to go before his 2017-18 numbers look good. He has a 5-8-2 record, 2.65 GAA, and .906 save percentage in 15 starts this season.

This win was Rask’s first shutout of the season, bringing his record to 5-8-2 with a 2.65 goals against average and .906 save percentage.

Tuukka Rask doesn't believe in goalie controversy talk.

"It's only a matter of what you guys (in the press) write that makes it a controversy," said Rask. "For us, it's not a controversy." Backup netminder Anton Khudobin has won each of his last four starts, while Rask has lost in his past four outings. Coach Bruce Cassidy hasn't decided who will get the nod on Wednesday night against Tampa Bay, but he believes Rask will bounce back. "Tuukka is a world-class goaltender. He's going to get his wins," said the Bruins bench boss. "Hopefully whoever is in there Wednesday gives us a good chance to win."

Nov 26 - 8:23 AM

Tuukka Rask understands why the Bruins have decided to go back to backup goalie Anton Khudobin on Saturday.

Khudobin was terrific is a win over Los Angeles in Boston's last game. The team has decided to give Khudobin a second straight starts instead of going back to Rask. "Absolutely, I would have done the same thing if I was the coach," said Rask. "Dobie played a heck of a game and his results have been there. I haven’t been able to get wins the past three starts, so it’s understandable. Only thing I can do is practice hard, keep working hard and the results will follow." Rask will eventually get the number one job back, but his fantasy owners can't be happy about this.
