  • Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Gets nod for China Games finale

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/19/18) Rask will draw the start against the Flames on Wednesday morning for the finale of the NHL China Games, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

    This game will be held in Beijing after the first -- a 4-3 shootout win for the Flames on Saturday -- was held in Shenzhen. Rask will enter the new season healthy after needing a procedure to drain a bursa on his ankle in May. He posted a 34-14-5 record, 2.36 GAA and .917 save percentage last season.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Healthy ahead of new campaign

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/22/18) Rask (ankle) should be ready to go for training camp, according to masslive.com.

    Boston's top goalie underwent an ankle procedure last May to drain a bursa sac, but not much has been made of the issue this offseason which suggests he should be just fine for camp. Rask posted a 34-14-5 record, 2.36 GAA and .917 save percentage over 54 appearances in 2017-18. Expect a similar workload from him this season, but the B's went the free-agency route to court an established No. 2 netminder in Jaroslav Halak -- he was formerly with the Islanders -- who could pick up serious minutes should Rask sustain an injury or, less likely, falter in his 12th NHL season.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Slated to undergo ankle procedure

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/11/18) 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 | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/18) 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.

    Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Looking to avert elimination Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/18) 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.
