News: Rask made 30 saves, but suffered a 3-2 loss in overtime Monday against the Penguins. Impact: Rask got off to somewhat of a slow start to the season, but he's been rounding back into form of late. The loss dropped him to 10-6-1, but he's an impressive 6-2-1 in November and can't really be faulted for allowing three goals to the high-powered Pittsburgh offense.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Nov 24, 2014
News: Rask has been confirmed as the starting goalie for Monday's game against the Penguins. Impact: As expected, Rask will make another start after playing well, but getting no support in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Canadiens.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Nov 24, 2014
News: Rask was the first goalie off the ice at the Bruins' morning skate Monday, indicating that he is on track to start the evening's game against the Penguins. Impact: Rask is thus in line to have an opportunity to bounce back from Saturday's 2-0 loss to Montreal, though he'll be doing so in front of a Boston squad that's dealing with several injuries.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 22, 2014
News: Rask made 21 saves in a 2-0 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday night. Impact: The Habs really have his number -- he's posted a 3-12-3 regular-season record against them over his career. But then again, he can't win if his teammates don't score. He's still a fine play overall -- this was just his third loss in his last 10 games started. Just avoid les bleu, blanc et rouge.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 22, 2014
News: Rask will start Saturday's game against Montreal. Impact: Rask, who shut out the Blues in his last outing on Tuesday, will thus look to change his luck against Montreal, a team that has given him trouble in the past. To date, Rask has recorded a career 3-11-3 record against the Habs.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 22, 2014
News: Rask is expected to start Saturday's game against Montreal, ESPN.com reports. Impact: Rask owns a career 3-11-3 record against Montreal, but with Niklas Svedberg having started Friday's game against the Blue Jackets, it appears as though the Bruins are prepared to give Rask -- who shut out the Blues on Tuesday -- a chance to change his luck against the Habs on Saturday.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Nov 19, 2014
News: Rask made 33 saves for his first shutout of the season Tuesday, which came against a Blues team that had won 10 of 11. Impact: Rask has allowed one goal in two games since yielding four on a 6-1 loss to Toronto on Nov. 12.(STATS, 1:21pm)
Tue. Nov 18, 2014
News: Rask stopped all 33 shot attempts by the Blues in Tuesday's 2-0 victory for his first shutout of the season. Impact: It's been a bit of an inconsistent start to the year by the usually clockwork-like Rask, who racked up seven shutouts last season and five in the lockout-shortened campaign before that. But most of his struggles came in October -- since the calendar turned to November, he's got a much more Rask-like 1.86 GAA and .935 save percentage. And he's 6-1 in that span.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Nov 18, 2014
News: Rask led the Bruins onto the ice for pregame warmups and will make the start Tuesday against the Blues, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports. Impact: Rask is coming off a dominant showing against the Hurricanes over the weekend, during which he held the opposition to one goal on 34 shot attempts. He'll face off against Brian Elliott on Tuesday.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Nov 18, 2014
News: Rask is on track to start Tuesday's game against the Blues, Amalie Benjamin of The Boston Globe reports. Impact: Rask was the first goalie off the ice following Tuesday's morning skate, which lines him up to start Tuesday night. Rask got off to a bit of a slow start, but he is 5-1-0 and has posted a .921 save percentage in six November starts.(RotoWire, )
Sun. Nov 16, 2014
News: Rask finished with 33 saves in a 2-1 win over Carolina on Saturday. Impact: Rask is 5-1-0 with a 2.20 goals-against average in six November games.(STATS, 4:57pm)
Sat. Nov 15, 2014
News: Rask allowed just one goal on 34 shots en route to a 2-1 victory over the visiting Hurricanes on Saturday. Impact: Aside from the disaster that was four goals on 12 shots in his last start against Toronto, Rask has been rolling, with Saturday's win coming as his fifth in six starts. The B's have certainly needed him of late, as injuries to key players David Krejci (lower body) and Zdeno Chara (knee) have put that at a disadvantage in the goal-scoring department. Rask's .908 save percentage and 2.56 GAA aren't quite elite, but the 27-year-old should only get better as the season rolls on -- something owners will be counting on as they likely used a high draft pick on him in drafts this year.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 15, 2014
News: Rask led the Bruins onto the ice for pregame warmups and will make the start Saturday against the Hurricanes, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Coach Claude Julien passed over Rask in favor of backup Niklas Svedberg for Thursday's game against the Canadiens, but he'll entrust his No. 1 starter to get back on track against the Hurricanes. Carolina will counter with the sizzling Cam Ward in the opposite net.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 15, 2014
News: Rask is expected to get the start in net for the Bruins on Saturday against the Hurricanes, the team's official site reports. Impact: Rask, who gave way to Niklas Svedberg on Thursday in Montreal, is thus on track to try to help the Bruins stop a two-game slide in which they've been outscored by a combined mark of 11-2.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Nov 13, 2014
News: Phil Kessel scored twice against his former team, and the Maple Leafs netted four goals during a nine-minute stretch to chase Rask in Wednesday's 6-1 loss. Impact: Rask allowed four goals on 16 shots before being replaced by backup Niklas Svedberg in the second period. He had not yielded more two goals in each of his previous four contests.(STATS, 12:52pm)
Wed. Nov 12, 2014
News: Rask was pulled during the second period of Wednesday's 6-1 loss to the Maple Leafs. Impact: Rask allowed three goals in the first four minutes of the second period Wednesday before he was yanked in favor of Niklas Svedberg. The reigning Vezina winner had been playing well lately, having strung together four straight wins, so his poor performance should be written off as an aberration.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Nov 12, 2014
News: Rask will start in goal Wednesday against the Maple Leafs. Impact: Rask will be between the pipes for the second time in three days, and will look to lead the Bruins to their fourth straight victory with him in the net. The team will play the second game of a back-to-back set Thursday, so it seems likely that Niklas Svedburg would get the starting nod for that contest over Rask.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Nov 12, 2014
News: Though coach Claude Julien labeled his starting goalie for Wednesday's tilt with the Maple Leafs a game-time decision, Rask is expected to get the nod for the Bruins. Impact: Rask didn't take part in Wednesday's optional morning skate while backup Niklas Svedberg was on the ice, suggesting that the Bruins plan to stick with their No. 1 goalie. Expect confirmation on the starting goalie to come during pregame warmups, or about 30 minutes before the 7:00 EST puck drop. Wednesday's game will mark the first of a back-to-back set for the Bruins, so if Julien indeed tabs Rask against the Leafs, it's possible Svedberg would play Thursday versus the Canadiens.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Nov 11, 2014
News: Rask turned aside 26 of 28 shots in Monday's 4-2 win over the visiting Devils. Impact: It was business as usual for the Finnish netminder, who improved to 8-4-0 in this one. Combined with his 2.44 GAA and .909 save percentage, Rask has played soundly in the season's first month, and should bring his numbers closer to his career marks of 2.13 and .929 as the Bruins pick up steam.(RotoWire, )
