  • Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Receives Thursday's starting nod

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/21/17) Rask will tend the twine for Thursday's preseason contest with Philadelphia, Joe McDonald of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

    Thursday will be the first game action that Rask has seen this preseason, having sat out the team's first two tilts. The 2014 Vezina Trophy winner won't be eased into action, either, with head coach Bruce Cassidy announcing that Rask will play the entire 60 minutes. Philadelphia brought a relatively strong lineup to compete in Thursday's game, so expect Rask to see a relatively hefty workload.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Good to go for training camp

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/15/17) Rask (groin) was present for practice Friday.

    Rask underwent offseason surgery to repair his right groin, but he's good to go for the start of training camp. He's entrenched as the Bruins' starting goalie, but ideally the team will identify a reliable No. 2 option in order to avoid overworking Rask this coming season. Since earning the Vezina Trophy in 2013-14, Rask's numbers have fallen off a bit due to inconsistent defensive play in front of him. With that said, as an influx of young blue-line talent arrives in Boston, that context could soon brighten for the 30-year-old netminder.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Undergoes successful surgery Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/9/17) Rask underwent successful surgery to repair his injured right groin Tuesday and is expected to be ready for the start of the 2017-18 NHL season.

    Rask dealt with the groin issue for much of the 2016-17 campaign, but it didn't make him miss much action, as he was able to finish the season with a healthy 65 games under his belt. While his .915 save percentage this season was nothing special, the 30-year-old's 2.23 GAA was good enough for sixth in the NHL among qualified keepers. Assuming he can stay healthy, look for Rask to bounce back next season.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Yields three goals in overtime loss during Game 6

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/17) Rask allowed three goals on 29 shots in a 3-2 overtime defeat during Game 6 of the first round against the Senators. Ottawa won the series, 4-2.

    The 30-year-old stopped 26 of 27 on even strength, but that wasn't enough, as the Senators tallied two scores on the power play. Although Rask posted a .920 save percentage in the series, that wasn't enough either. Three of Ottawa's four wins in the series came in overtime, and the other was a 1-0 victory where the Bruins mustered up just 22 shots on goal. It's now been three years since Rask won the Vezina Trophy, but he remains a top 10 fantasy goaltender heading into next season.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Will tend twine Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/17) Rask will be in the crease for Sunday's Game 6 against Ottawa, Joe Haggerty of CSN NE reports.

    Tuuks had a couple rough games in Game 2 and 3, but his last two times out have been stellar as he's stopped 67 of 70 shots. He'll need another similar performance to avoid elimination, given how well opposing goalie Craig Anderson has played -- the Ottawa netminder has stopped 58 of 61 shots in the past two games, including a 22-shot shutout in Game 4.
