Feb 27 - 12:26 PM

Tuukka Rask allowed two goals on 28 shots Tuesday, but was saddled with a loss in a 2-1 defeat to Vancouver.

Rask's record remains a relatively useful 24-16-9, but his peripheral stats, while decent, aren't as strong as his fantasy owners have come to expect. His 2.37 GAA and .919 save percentage are the poorest figures he has posted since the 2010-11 campaign.
Feb 24 - 10:10 PM

Tuukka Rask is expected to get the start on Tuesday night against the Vancouver Canucks.

If Rask does go, it'll be his 18th consecutive start and 26th in Boston's last 27 games. Boston leads the Panthers by three points, and the Flyers by four points in for the final playoff slot. Making this another near must-win for the Bruins. On the season, Rask is 24-15-9 with a .919 save percentage and 2.39 GAA through 50 games. He's also 3-4-2 with 23 goals against in 10 games in February.

Tuukka Rask didn't think he hit Chicago's Kris Versteeg with his stick in Sunday's 6-2 victory.

"I didn't think so," Rask said. "I haven't seen the replay. I'm sure it's pretty obvious I tried to slash the post. That's what I thought I did. Stay out of the crease." Jonathan Toews scored in the dying seconds of the first period and Rask may have gotten a piece of Versteeg with his stick when he swung it in frustration. The Boston netminder was called for slashing on the play right after he was assessed two minutes for delaying the game by playing the puck outside of the trapezoid.

Tuukka Rask turned aside 26 of 28 shots in Sunday’s 6-2 win over Chicago.

The win ends Boston’s six game winless streak (0-4-2) and they are now three points ahead of Florida for the final Wild Card spot in the East. Rask has made an appearance in 26 of Boston’s last 27 games including 17 in a row. After the Hawks cut the lead to 2-1, Rask wacked the goalpost with his stick, but appeared to get a piece of Chicago forward Kris Versteeg. He was assessed a two-minute penalty on the play. Rask’s record improves to 24-15-9 on the season.
Feb 22 - 6:15 PM

Tuukka Rask will get the start in Sunday's game against Washington.

The Bruins have hit a bit of a rough stretch and they are turning to Rask to get them out of it. Rask has now appeared in 17 straight games and 26 of Boston's last 27 games played. He will face a stiff test in Chicago on Sunday.
Feb 22 - 3:38 PM

Tuukka Rask didn't enjoy a full night off on Friday because he had to enter the game against the Blues after Malcolm Subban was pulled.

Rask stopped 7 of 9 shots in the loss and he acknowledged that the situation has become draining. "Obviously it is (mentally taxing) but you try not to think about it when you’re playing and just stay focused and try to do whatever you can do to keep the puck out of the net," Rask said. "Obviously when you face a lot of shots and a lot of scoring chances it’s physically challenging but I feel good. We’re at the stage right now where every point matters. And if I have to play every game, I’ll play every game." The Bruins are in the middle of a tight playoff race in the East, and they probably won't be able to give Rask too much time off.
Feb 21 - 9:06 AM

Tuukka Rask turned aside 27-of-30 shots but took the 3-2 SO loss to Edmonton on Wednesday.

Rask was a bit of a surprise starter and was a little shaky to start the game but settled down to give the Bruins a chance to get the win. Malcolm Subban was apparently originally slated to start the game but with the team looking to snap a losing streak it was apparent that coach Claude Julien wanted to end it in this contest. Task not completed unfortunately for Rask and the Bruins. He has lost five straight starts now and has a 23-15-9 record to go with a 2.36 GAA and .920 save percentage. He is still an elite option though at his position and it's just a matter of time before Boston and Rask snap out of it.
Feb 19 - 3:03 AM

Tuukka Rask will get the start in Edmonton on Wednesday contrary to popular thought.

It was thought that Malcolm Subban would get his first career start and Rask would get a breather before facing St. Louis. It turns out Claude Julien wanted to do his best to end the teams' current losing streak. Get him in your lineups ASAP!

Tuukka Rask had a 3-0 lead after 20:50 of play, but Calgary would not go quietly into that good night. Forging a comeback, and a victory for their fans.

Four goals, including one on the power play, on 27 shots. Not the toughest night Rask's ever had. A three goal lead should always be held on to, but it was a game full of odd bounces. None the least of which the one that ended the game with two seconds left, as TJ Brodie threw a backhander at the bottom of the circles, took two bounces on top of the net, off Rask's right shoulder and in. The Finnish netminder is now 23-15-8 with 108 goals against in 47 games this season.
Feb 17 - 2:03 AM

Tuukka Rask was beaten four times on 24 shots in Boston's 5-2 loss to Vancouver on Friday night.

Rask was left hung out to dry several times by his defense, and it's hard to say how much better he could've done on any of the goals. Simply put, it was a bad night for everyone wearing the spoked-B. Rask's record falls to 23-15-7 with 104 goals against in 46 games this season, while the Bruins squander valuable points in the standings.
Feb 14 - 1:28 AM

Tuukka Rask will get the start in Friday's game against Vancouver.
