  • Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Officially out with illness Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/16) As expected, Rask is not available for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Senators, ESPN's Joe McDonald reports.

    Rask came down with an illness during pregame warmups and was a late scratch ahead of the contest, which has playoff implications for the B's. The Finn's regular-season campaign comes to a close having posted a 31-22-8 record, 2.56 GAA and .915 save percentage through 64 games. By several accounts, and compared to his past production, it's been a down year for the 29-year-old netminder.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Playing status in jeopardy Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/16) It appears that Rask has fallen ill ahead of the home contest against the Senators on Saturday afternoon, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports, adding that Jonas Gustavsson led the Bruins out for pregame warmups.

    Rask reportedly was on one knee for the first part of warmups and wasn't moving around on the ice, suggesting that he may be sick in advance of a pivotal playoff-deciding match. It's not clear at this point if Rask will be available in any capacity Saturday, but it does not look promising based on several reports out of Boston. Fantasy owners have little choice but to scramble for alternatives in this scenario.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Well supported in huge win Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/16) Rask set aside 13 of 15 shots in a 5-2 home win over the Red Wings on Thursday night.

    The workload was light, but Rask played aggressively when it mattered and displayed some spry positioning. One of his two goals allowed was a fluky deflection off the skate of teammate Adam McQuaid. Fortunately for Rask, several forwards helped his cause by stepping up with spectacular line defense in a game that the B's had to win - now they're in position to grab the second wild-card playoff spot out of the Eastern Conference.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Starting in goal Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/16) Rask will start in the blue paint Thursday against the Red Wings.

    With the B's in the midst of a 2-7-1 slide, Rask will take aim at a Detroit squad playing for the second straight night, having thwarted the Flyers at home Wednesday by a 3-0 score. The Bruins continue clawing to remain in the Eastern Conference playoff structure, so Rask is presumably also in line to start Saturday afternoon's regular season finale, at home against Ottawa.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Makes 27 saves, takes loss in shootout

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/16) Rask stopped 27 of 28 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout loss to Carolina.

    It was a strong showing from Boston's top netminder, who was pulled in the second period of Sunday's loss to Chicago. Still, Rask and the Bruins ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard. With two games remaining, and on the outside looking in, the 29-year-old will need to find a way to pick up wins if Boston wants to make the postseason.
