Boston coach Claude Julien does not believe that Tuukka Rask will be out of action long.

Rask missed Saturday night's game against Montreal due to general soreness, something he seems to have been dealing with since the season started. That said, Julien expects Rask to return to action very soon and considers him day-to-day. In the meantime Anton Khudobin will get the Bruins' starts with Zane McIntyre backing him up.

Tuukka Rask won't suit up in Saturday's game against the Montreal Canadiens.

Rask missed Friday's practice because of general body soreness and on Saturday, the Bruins revealed that he'd be forced to miss tonight's game. With details being so scarce, we'll have to assume that Rask is day-to-day right now. Expect Anton Khudobin to get the start for Boston.

Tuukka Rask missed Friday's practice due to general soreness.

Rask had been dealing with that problem last week too, though that hasn't stopped him from playing in Boston's last two contests. He's considered day-to-day, but it wouldn't be surprising if he doesn't end up missing any playing time.
Oct 21 - 2:09 PM

Tuukka Rask stopped 28 of 29 shots in Thursday's 2-1 win over the New Jersey Devils.

The only shot that beat Rask was a fluky power play goal Kyle Palmieri. The Devils forward was standing at the point and tried passing the puck to a teammate, but it ended up going off a Bruin before going into the net. Rask improves his record to 3-0-0 this season. He has a 1.67 goals-against-average and a .947 save percentage.
Oct 20 - 10:17 PM

Tuukka Rask is expected to get the nod for Boston Thursday night.

Rask left the ice first following the morning skate and that's usually a good way of predicting who the starter will be. He has a 2.01 GAA and .939 save percentage in two games this season.
Oct 20 - 12:13 PM

Boston goalie Tuukka Rask was outstanding Monday night, contributing both in net and offensively to the Bruins' 4-1 triumph over the Jets in Winnipeg.

Rask was acrobatic in the Boston goal, rejecting 34 of the 35 shots he faced. He is now 2-0 on the season, with a goals-against average of 2.02 and a .939 save percentage. What made Monday's victory even sweeter for Rask was his offense. He was credited with two assists. No other player had more than one assist in this game.

Tuukka Rask is expected to get the nod for Boston on Monday night versus Winnipeg.

He missed Saturday's game due to soreness from an undisclosed ailment, but feels ready to return. Rask was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, which indicates he is set to face the Jets.
Oct 17 - 4:44 PM

Tuukka Rask expects to be back in goal against Winnipeg after he felt a "little sore."

He said he feels fine now after skipping Saturday's 4-1 loss to Toronto. "Dobby was going to play one game on this trip," said Rask on Sunday referring to backup Anton Khudobin. "That was the plan. So we decided it was better for him to play yesterday and I'll be back at it tomorrow."
Oct 17 - 9:29 AM

Bruins coach Claude Julien is "optimistic" about Tuukka Rask's (undisclosed) availability for Monday's match with the Jets.

If the head coach is optimistic, you should be too. In 16 career games against Winnipeg, Rask owns a 10-6 record with a .928 save percentage and 34 goals against.
Oct 16 - 3:34 PM

Tuukka Rask did not play in Saturday night's contest against the Maple Leafs as he is nursing some sort of undisclosed injury.

The Bruins are calling it "soreness" and it doesn't appear too serious as Rask was able to dress as Anton Khudobin's backup against Toronto. That said, it did appear that Rask tweaked something in the third period of the Bruins' 6-3 win over Columbus Thursday night. It is unclear if Rask will be recovered in time to start Monday night against Winnipeg. If not, Khudobin will be in the cage.
Oct 16 - 8:38 AM

Tuukka Rask allowed three goals on 31 shots in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Rask gave up a weak goal to Alexander Wennberg just under three minutes into the game, but his team's top line of Brad Marchand, David Backes and David Pastrnak took over in the second and third periods to give the Bruins a 6-3 win. Rask is a strong fantasy option, as he'll continue to be the undisputed number one goalie in Boston.
Oct 13 - 10:12 PM

Tuukka Rask will tend Boston's net for their opener in Columbus.

Rask had perhaps the worst season of his career in 2015-16, but that was last year. Rask still sports a career .924 save percentage and 2.24 GAA in 330 career games. Columbus should be better this in 2016-17, but so should Rask and he's a must-start until further notice.
Oct 13 - 6:00 PM

Tuukka Rask couldn't have finished the pre-season on a stronger note.

Rask turned away all 27 shots during the overtime victory. Which is something all Bruins fans want to see after his worst career season in 2015-16. Expect Rask to bounce back this season.
Oct 8 - 8:10 PM

Tuukka Rask will play between the pipes on Saturday.

It will be Rask's last chance to warmup before the regular season. Barring an injury, he should play again in the opener on Thursday.
