News: Rask is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Panthers, FoxsportsFlorida's Steve Goldstein reports.
Impact: Rask, who will square off against Roberto Luongo on Tuesday, is past a migraine episode that he dealt with Saturday, as evidenced by his 30-save effort in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over the Hurricanes.
News: According to coach Claude Julien, Connolly (finger) is "getting closer" to a return to action.
Impact: Connolly has been able to skate with the B's, so once he gets the green light from the team's doctors, the forward's return will largely hinge on his comfort level while shooting, as well as battling for pucks.
News: Rask's early exit from Saturday's game against the Rangers is being referred to as a migraine episode by csnne.com.
Impact: Initially, it was thought that Rask was dealing with a case of dehydration, but Rask -- who returned to make 30 saves in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over Carolina -- relayed that a migraine headache caused him to leave Saturday's contest early. While it's an issue that could conceivably crop up again for Rask in the future, he's past this episode and poised to remain busy down the stretch run for the Bruins, who are battling for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
News: Krug recorded an assist in his third consecutive game Sunday against the Hurricanes.
Impact: The blueliner also put six shots on net in the 2-1 win, which matched his highest total for the season. With Dougie Hamilton missing the previous four games and perhaps out for the remainder of the regular season, Krug has taken on a larger role for the Bruins, surpassing 21 minutes of ice time during three of those four games. That's a fairly noticeable increase from the 19:27 TOI Krug has been averaging for the season.
