  • Rask will require an offseason procedure to drain a bursa on his ankle, Mark Garbino of the Bruins' official site reports. Rask's ankle issue isn't a long-term concern and he'll be fine well in advance of training camp. The 31-year-old played in 54 regular-season games this past season, as the Bruins tried to manage his workload with an eye toward keeping him fresh for the stretch run. That plan was facilitated by the solid play of backup Anton Khudobin, who is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but a candidate to be re-signed by the team. Rask finished the 2017-18 campaign with a 34-14-5 record to go along with a 2.36 GAA and a .917 save percentage. He's posted better numbers over his career, but looking ahead his fantasy outlook for 2018-19 is bolstered by the fact that he's entrenched as the starter on a team that appears set to remain a top-level squad for the foreseeable future thanks to a nice blend of accomplished veterans and promising youngsters.

  • Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Makes 19 saves in Game 5 loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rask stopped 19 of 21 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Lightning in Game 5. He allowed fewer than three goals to Tampa for the first time since Game 1, but Rask's efforts weren't enough to extend Boston's season. He wraps up the playoffs with a disappointing 2.88 GAA and .903 save percentage, the worst showing of his career. However, coming on the heels of another strong regular season, there seems to be little reason for the Bruins to be concerned with their franchise netminder.

  • Rask will be the road starter in Game 5 against Tampa Bay on Sunday, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports. After turning aside 34 of 36 shots to win Game 1, Rask mustered an unimpressive .894 save percentage and 3.33 GAA during three straight losses. The B's are facing elimination for the second straight series, and Rask almost lost them Game 7 against Toronto by allowing four goals on 24 shots. The Finnish backstop will need to be much better in order to keep the Stanley Cup dreams alive, and Boston will need to generate additional offense without blueliner Torey Krug (ankle), who produced 12 points in 11 postseason outings.

  • Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Suffers loss in Game 4
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rask allowed four goals on 28 shots during a 4-3 overtime defeat to the Lightning on Friday night. The Lightning lead the second-round series 3-1. Rask came into the night already leading all playoff goaltenders in losses and goals allowed, and he posted an .857 save percentage while losing his sixth game of the spring Friday. Before 2018, Rask's worst save percentage for an individual playoff year was .912, and that came back when he was only 22 years old in 2009-10. In his next 50 postseason games, Rask recorded a .929 save percentage, but this time, he's down to .903 in that category. His career playoff success gives owners hope for a turnaround, but time is running out.

  • Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Confirmed to start Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rask will start in goal Friday evening against the Lightning for Game 4 of the conference semifinals, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports. Even though Rask has a 3.08 GAA and .909 save percentage over two straight losses against the Bolts, he's not in imminent danger of relinquishing his starting job to Anton Khudobin during this playoff series. Rask is still making huge saves in this series, and it's just that more rubber is being thrown his way compared to what Andrei Vasilevskiy has seen (102 shots versus 72). Certainly, the B's could make the Finn's life easier by increasing pressure in Tampa's defensive zone.
