Tuukka Rask was up to the test Saturday night, making 32 saves in the Bruins’ 4-1 win against the Maple Leafs.

Rask will have his work cut out for him for at least the next month with the team’s best defenseman, Zdeno Chara, out. There are some question marks within Boston’s blueline group. Rask certainly has the ability to steal some games in the meantime. He has a 2.63 goals-against average and .897 save percentage, rates that should certainly improve as the season progresses.

Look for Tuukka Rask to get the start in goal against his former club, the Maple Leafs Saturday night.

Rask got Thursday night off as Niklas Svedberg started and lost to the Islanders 3-2. Rask should be back between the pipes Saturday. He is coming off a 5-3 win over San Jose Tuesday. Even without Zdeno Chara in the lineup, we would start Rask with confidence.
Oct 25 - 8:45 AM

Tuukka Rask and the Bruins came back from a third period deficit to outlast San Jose by a score of 5-3 Tuesday.

Rask allowed three goals on 34 shots in the win, which evens his season record to 3-3-0. The Finnish goalkeeper has started the season off rather slowly, thanks in part to a difficult outing against the rival Canadiens, but his track record suggests this is little more than a blip on the radar. His GAA is 2.91 and his save percentage is .880.

Tuukka Rask continues to struggle against the Canadiens.

After Thursday night's 6-4 loss, the talented netminder sports a career record of 3-11-3 against Montreal with a 2.80 GAA and a .902 SP, well off his impressive stats against the rest of the league. Boston next plays the Habs in Montreal on November 13th. Perhaps Rask owners should sit him down for that contest. in the meantime, we suspect Niklas Svedberg will make third career start against the Sabres Saturday night.

Tuukka Rask's struggles against the Montreal Canadiens continued on Thursday night.

His record stands at 3-10-3 and he has a 2.63 goals-against average against Boston's bitter rival. "I don't know, I got to do something about it, I don't know, I'll figure something out," said Rask. "But yeah, like I said we started out good, I felt good in the first. They get that one bounce and its okay we will battle through it. Then they get another one and you're like okay, doesn't matter and then they get that third one and you're like okay it's one of those nights again." Rask and the Bruins have had a sluggish start to the 2014-15 season, but it shouldn't be long before they round into form.
Oct 17 - 9:51 AM

Tuukka Rask got the yank after allowing five goals on just 23 shots in Boston's 6-4 loss to Montreal on Thursday night, dropping the Bruins' record to a lackluster 2-4 on the season.

Rask has lost three games through his first five starts of the season and has struggled with an .870 save percentage and 2.90 goals-against average, well below his career averages. It's most likely an early season slump as the Bruins are still built to win and Rask is too good to stagger with these poor numbers.
Oct 17 - 12:14 AM

Tuuka Rask turned aside 18 shots in regulation and overtime before he and the Boston Bruins recorded a 3-2 shootout victory over the Red Wings in Detroit Wednesday night.

Rask didn't have an especially busy night but he's one of the premier goalies in the NHL and, of course, one of the top goalies in fantasy leagues. He is 2-2 on the season after this win, has a goals-against average of 2.22 and a save percentage of .894.
Oct 15 - 11:45 PM

Tuukka Rask was roughed up by the Capitals in the Bruins’ 4-0 loss Saturday night.

Rask made only 17 saves, for his second straight loss after winning in the season opener. Don’t read too much into this early-season stat line as Rask is still one of the best in the business. Certainly, major improvement from a .892 save percentage is expected.
Oct 11 - 9:58 PM

Look for Tuukka Rask to start against the Capitals Saturday night.

If he does get the call, it will be the third consecutive game for Rask. New backup Niklas Svedberg will get a chance in the next week or so to play, but it likely won't be against Washington Saturday night. Monday afternoon's contest against Colorado is a possibility for Svedberg, though.
Oct 11 - 8:51 AM

Tuukka Rask was good in net for Boston, but Jimmy Howard was better across the way. Rask stopped just 22-24 in the 2-1 defeat.

Up 1-0 thanks to Patrice Bergeron, Justin Abdelkader expertly tipped a Danny DeKeyser slapper from the point, tying the game at one early in the second. About a dozen minutes later, Gustav Nyqivst was finishing a pretty display of passing for the game's final tally. Rask played well, the Wings need two perfect shots to be him and they got them. Tough luck.
Oct 10 - 2:46 AM

Tuukka Rask will be back between the pipes for Boston on Thursday versus Detroit.

He stopped 19 of 20 shots in a 2-1 victory over Philadelphia on Wednesday to begin the 2014-15 season. Adjust your goaltending accordingly.
Oct 9 - 7:10 PM

Tuukka Rask needed to save only 19 shots in the Boston Bruins' 2-1 defeat of the visiting Philadelphia Flyers in their opening game of the regular season Wednesday night.

Rask's save percentage after the one game is .950.
Oct 8 - 10:20 PM

Tuukka Rask isn't going to let winning the Vezina Trophy go to his head.

"It doesn't feel different. It's in the past. I'll start thinking about those things when I stop playing hockey and I'll feel good about it," Rask said. "The main focus has to be the next season. You always have to prove yourself and be good. It doesn't matter if you win Vezinas or not. You still have to be good." Rask always wants to improve whether he enjoys success or experiences failure. "I think it's a never-ending circle. There's always something," he explained. "If you play unbelievable, then you have to be as good. If you sucked, then you have to be a lot better. There's always something. It doesn’t really matter if you win or not, you always have to be better. That’s my mindset."
Aug 13 - 9:45 AM

The Bruins Tuukka Rask took home his first career Vezina Trophy Tuesday, awarded to the NHL's top goaltender.

Rask was superb last season as he posted a 2.04 GAA and .930 save percentage to go along with 36 victories, but he narrowly edged out Colorado's Semyon Varlamov for the award. Tampa Bay's Ben Bishop, Montreal's Carey Price and the Kings' Jonathan Quick followed them in the voting.
