Tuukka Rask (migraine) didn't take part in Monday's practice.

He underwent some tests after a migraine issue took him out of Sunday's game against Pittsburgh. The Bruins had an emergency goalie and Zane McIntyre as the netminders during Monday's session. He still could be available for Tuesday night's game, but consider him day-to-day for now.

David Backes skated at right wing on Sunday, but he was on the third line.

He played against Pittsburgh alongside Riley Nash and Ryan Spooner. "Backs, to me, has been a stronger player on the wing," said coach Claude Julien before the game. "We did get him here to help us at center. He can. He did a good job of it at the beginning of the year when Bergeron was out." Backes has played up and down Boston's top three lines this season, while seeing time on the wing and at center.

It sounds like Tuukka Rask (migraine) will be back in the lineup on Tuesday night.

He had to leave Sunday's game versus Pittsburgh after experiencing a migraine, but he was feeling better later in the contest. "It starts with seeing lights a little bit," said Rask. "Then it got bad really quickly. Same thing. It lasted half an hour. I got my vision back with a couple minutes played in the third period. But 3-1, 4-1 quickly, so ...." He went through a similar issues back on March 28, 2015 when he pulled himself from a game, but he was back in net a night later.

Zane McIntyre entered Sunday's game in relief of Tuukka Rask on Sunday against the Penguins.

Tuukka Rask left midway through Sunday's match against the Penguins because he wasn't feeling well.

The all-world netminder had stopped 20 of 22 shots and was losing 2-0 at the time of his departure. He was replaced by Zane McIntyre. Rask is considered day-to-day, for now.
Jan 22 - 5:38 PM

The game between the Bruins and Penguins has been delayed with 6:26 to go in the first period due to ice problems in the Penguins' end.

And so the ice crews have gotten to work right away fixing the ice. The time will be made up in the second period as they head into the next frame scoreless.

Tuukka Rask will likely get the start against the Penguins Sunday afternoon.

Bruin coach Claude Julien is under fire and we would be shocked if he did not go with his best against a strong Pittsburgh club. Rask is coming off a tough 1-0 loss to Chicago in which he stopped 21 shots. For the season, Rask sports a very fine 22-11-4 record with a 2.08 GAA and .920 SP.
