Tuukka Rask got back to practice with his teammates on Thursday and he's ready to start when he's called upon.
"I feel good. I only played four games, so it wasn't an exhausting experience from that standpoint and then obviously we had time to relax there and enjoy the experience," Rask said of his Olympic tenure with Team Finland. "And on the way back I slept the whole flight. So I'm ready to go." Rask sat out Wednesday's overtime loss to Buffalo after helping Finland win the bronze medal in Sochi. Coach Claude Julien hasn't named a starter yet for Saturday's afternoon match against Washington, but it wouldn't be surprising if it was Rask.

The Boston Bruins are hoping Tuukka Rask's strong Olympic performance will carry over to the final stretch of their campaign.
Rask got off to a rough start in the Olympics, but he wrapped things up with a 27-save shutout against the United States in the bronze medal game. "Being through stressful intense situations and when it goes well, those are moments that, you get into another one and you're able to draw on," said Bruins teammate Jarome Iginla. "So it's great to see [Rask] playing well, he's a great goalie. I don't think anybody is expecting anything differently. They've seen him for a long time." Rask has a 2.11 GAA and .928 save percentage in 43 starts with Boston this season.
