  • Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Exits after collision

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/19/19) Rask exited Saturday's game against the Rangers after getting crashed into by Filip Chytil.

    Chyil added insult to injury by scoring on the play just before getting pushed into Rask by Boston's Charlie McAvoy. Jaroslav Halak will replace Rask, who stopped six of seven shots before exiting. Luckily for the Finnish netminder, Boston doesn't play again until Jan. 29, giving him ample time to recover.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Set to face Rangers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/18/19) Rask is slated to start Saturday's game against the Rangers, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.

    Rask's win in Boston's 5-2 decision over the Blues on Thursday was his 252nd, a mark that ties the 31-year-old with Tiny Thompson for the franchise high in that category. In addition to the milestone, Rask's 28-save effort against St. Louis gives him a 6-0-1 record since Dec. 29. Meanwhile, backup Jaroslav Halak, who started the season strong, has faltered of late. Given that context, as well as the fact the Bruins are as healthy as they have been all season, Rask profiles as a solid fantasy option at this stage of the campaign. On Saturday, he'll take aim at a Rangers squad that has won three of four games following a five-game slide earlier this month.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Strong stretch continues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/17/19) Rask propelled the Bruins to a 5-2 victory over the Blues with 28 saves Thursday.

    Rask conceded twice in the second period to fall behind 2-1, but Boston responded with four unanswered goals to push the Finnish goalie's record to 14-8-3. Backup Jaroslav Halak made a strong push for playing time earlier this season, but Rask is back to being the top dog in net for the Bruins. Rask's 6-0-1 in his past seven starts while Halak's 1-3-0 in his last four.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Starting against St. Louis

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/19) Rask will guard the goal in Thursday's home game against the Blues, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.

    Rask was a little shaky in his last start Monday against Montreal, surrendering three goals on 22 shots en route to a 3-2 loss. The Finnish backstop will look to bounce back and pick up his 14th win of the season in a home matchup with a St. Louis club that's only averaging 2.44 goals per game away from home this campaign, 26th in the NHL.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Hot streak ended by Habs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/19) Rask allowed three goals on 22 shots in Monday's overtime loss to the Canadiens.

    Rask won five straight games entering this contest, allowing just seven goals and posting a .955 save percentage in that stretch. That fire was extinguished as luck simply wasn't on Rask's side as he lost his first game in over three weeks. He succumbed to a crafty midair redirect by Brendan Gallagher, a shorthanded breakaway by Paul Byron and a Jeff Petry sealed the deal in overtime with his midair swat of the puck into the back of the net.
