Tuukka Rask G BOS 3 Days

Rask stopped 31 of 32 shots in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes.

After missing the first game of the Bruins' weekend back-to-back Friday with an illness, Rask was stellar in his return to the net, keeping the Coyotes off the board for the first 50 minutes. Though he recently put a stop to a six-game losing streak, Rask has appeared to be in form his last three times out, holding the opposition to two or fewer tallies.

Rask (illness) will receive the start in goal for Saturday's game against the Coyotes, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.

As the reassignment to the minors of Friday's emergency goalie call-up, Jeremy Smith, would indicate, Rask is seemingly fully recovered from the bout with an illness that left him unavailable a day earlier. Rask recently snapped a six-game losing streak prior to sitting out Friday, but despite the downturn in his performance, he still makes for an excellent fantasy choice against the Coyotes, who have dropped eight in a row to threaten the Sabres and Oilers for the NHL's worst record.

With the Bruins demoting Jeremy Smith to AHL Providence, Rask (illness) should be available in at least a backup capacity Saturday against the Coyotes, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.

Rask was scratched from Friday's win over the Devils with the illness, as No. 2 netminder Niklas Svedberg led the Bruins to victory while Smith slotted in as his backup. Coach Claude Julien indicated after the game that Rask had been feeling better prior to being scratched, and it appears his condition continued to trend in the right direction over night. Still, the Bruins' goalie plans for Saturday's game likely won't be clarified until pregame warmups.

Rask (illness) will not be available for Friday's game against the Devils.

Rask missed the Bruins' morning skate due to the illness and wasn't able to make enough progress in the afternoon for the team to clear him for action. As a result, Niklas Svedberg will pick up a rare start, with AHL Providence call-up Jeremy Smith slotting in as his backup. The Bruins will assess Rask's condition Saturday morning before determining if he'll be able to play later that evening against the Coyotes.

Rask is feeling under the weather, and he remains at the Bruins' hotel ahead of Friday's game against the Devils, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.

It sounds as if Rask is unlikely to play, in which case Niklas Svedberg would likely get the start. The team may need to recall Malcolm Subban (or another goalie) from AHL Providence, and with Boston heading into the first game of a back-to-back, it's possible Subban could get a start this weekend. Rask is considered questionable for Friday's game, and a decision may not come until pregame warmups, according to NHL.com's Mike Morreale.

Rask stopped 26 of 28 shots Tuesday, but was stuck with a 2-1 loss against Eddie Lack and the Canucks.

Lack outplayed Rask, making 40 saves to send the Finnish netminder to his sixth loss (four in regulation) over his last seven starts. The Bruins have had a tough time getting things going on a consistent basis, and Rask's fall-off from Vezina-caliber netminding is certainly one of the factors there.

Rask led the Bruins on the ice for pregame warmups and will make the start in goal Tuesday against the Canucks.

Rask broke a six-game losing streak over the weekend against the Blackhawks, stopping 26 of 28 shots in the 6-2 victory. Despite his disappointing performances the last handful times out, Rask should make for a worthy fantasy play in his return to TD Garden. The visiting Canucks will start Eddie Lack in goal.

Rask is on track to start Tuesday's game against Vancouver, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.

Rask is thus in line to appear in his 18th straight game and we'd expect him to continue to remain busy moving forward. That said, the Bruins' next set of back-to-back games are Friday (against New Jersey) and Saturday (against the Coyotes), so Rask may give way to Niklas Svedberg in one of those contests.
