Tuukka Rask knocked aside all 25 shots the Habs fired his way on Sunday in a 4-0 victory.

Rask notched his sixth shutout of the season to move him into second on the Bruins' all-time list. Boston snapped a nine-game home losing streak against the Habs as Rask improves to 27-13-4 this year with a .912 save percentage and 2.27 goals against average.

The Bruins will turn back to Tuukka Rask on Sunday against the Canadiens.

Through 25 career games against Montreal, Rask has a 6-15-3 record with a .912 save percentage and a 2.61. Both teams played their backup goalies yesterday.

Look for Tuukka Rask to get the start against the Canadiens Sunday evening.

Rask got Saturday night off as Anton Khudobin got the call and the win over the Canucks. Rask is coming off a 23-save, 6-3 win over the Sharks Thursday night. For the season, he boasts a 26-13-4 record with a 2.32 GAA and .910 SP.
Feb 12 - 9:21 AM

Tuukka Rask stopped 23 of 26 shots in a 6-3 win over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday.

The Bruins jumped out to a 3-1 lead after the first period and never looked back. Rask has now won four of his last five starts, but hasn't managed to give up less than three goals in any of those wins. Nonetheless, he is bringing wins to your fantasy lineup and it's only a matter of time before his goals against average falls back in line. The win improves his record to 26-13-4 with a 2.32 goals against average and .910 save percentage.

Tuukka Rask will face San Jose on Thursday.

Ironically Rask has not bee good at home this season. He's posted an 11-7 record in 19 games with two shutouts, a 2.50 GAA and an .897 save percentage. He's also 6-4 with just 15 goals against in 11 contests versus Western foes. So feel free to roll the dice.
Feb 9 - 6:36 PM

Tuukka Rask has not played well since the New Year.

After being pulled in Boston's 6-5 loss to Toronto Saturday night, Rask now has a .871 save percentage for the months of January and February. That's just not going to cut it for the Bruins who are fighting for a plyaoff spot in the Atlantic Division. Despite his subpar play, Rask has some limited job security as his backups Anton Khudobon (currently in Providence of the AHL) and Zane McIntyre are hardly reliable. If you own Rask in your hockey pool, you may not want to automatically start him as you might have in the past.
Feb 5 - 9:07 AM

Tuukka Rask was pulled after 30 minutes of play as the Bruins lost 6-5 to the Maple Leafs Saturday night.

The Boston netminder was playing in his 12th consecutive game and undoubtedly running out of steam. His undoing came in the middle of the second when he gave up three goals in less than two minutes. Two of these went to William Nylander, who scored his first career hat trick in the game. Zane McIntyre made 10 saves for the Bruins in relief. Patrice Bergeron briefly tied the game at 17:06 in the third before McIntyre gave up his second goal of the night to James van Riemsdyk.

Tuukka Rask will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Typically Rask being pegged as the starter is expected news, but this time it's a bit more noteworthy because he skipped Friday's practice for maintenance reasons. He apparently felt his groin pop a bit on Wednesday, but played through it. If they're starting him so soon afterwards they must not be particularly concerned.
Feb 3 - 12:53 PM

Tuukka Rask didn't practice Friday to receive some maintenance.

He said he felt his groin pop a little bit on Wednesday against Washington, but he managed to finish the game. We'll keep you posted on his status, but it doesn't seem like he will be unavailable for Saturday's game versus Toronto at this time.
Feb 3 - 10:49 AM

Tuukka Rask shrugged off a possible re-aggravation of a previous injury after Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Washington.

"I'm all right," he said. "I just popped my groin a little bit. But nothing major." The Bruins cannot afford to lose Rask, who has posted 25 of the team's 26 wins this season. He appeared to be in some pain after making a late-game save on Alex Ovechkin, but he stayed in the contest.
Feb 2 - 8:04 AM

Tuukka Rask allowed five goals on 22 shots in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Washington Capitals.

The Caps scored the first two goals of the game, but Boston managed to come back thanks to two goals by Brad Marchand. Unfortunately for the Bruins, that's as good as things would get, as the Capitals responded by scoring the next three goals. The loss puts an end to his three-game winning streak. Rask now owns a 25-13-4 record with a 2.24 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage in 2016-17.
Feb 1 - 11:27 PM

Tuukka Rask will be between the pipes against the Washington Capitals Wednesday night.

Rask started against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first game back from the All Star break, kicking aside 18 shots in a 4-3 win. He will be looking for his fourth straight win.
Feb 1 - 7:00 PM

It wouldn't be surprising if Tuukka Rask was back in the crease for Wednesday's game against Washington.

Coach Claude Julien said he would have to see what happens in Tuesday's game versus Tampa Bay before making a decision. Rask faced just 21 shots and came away with a 4-3 victory, so he could get the nod for Boston's second game of the back-to-back situation. Stay tuned.
Feb 1 - 9:59 AM

Tuukka Rask stopped 18 of 21 shots in a 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday.

Not his best night, but Rask didn't have to be as the Lightning seemed to be missing energy coming off the all-star break. He has now won three straight games, improving his record to 25-12-4 with a 2.17 goals against average and .917 save percentage.
