Bruins’ Tuukka Rask Out Against Canucks

Published

on

Boston Bruins netminder Tuuka Rask will miss Boston’s game against the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday following a collision with rookie forward Anders Bjork at practice on Wednesday.

Rask had to be helped off the ice following the collision and was not on the ice for the optional morning skate on Thursday. Bjork appeared to be knocked off balance before colliding with Rask in front of the net knocking Rask down for a few minutes before being helped off the ice.

Anton Khudobin will start in Rask’s place and Zane McIntyre was recalled from Providence of the American Hockey League to serve as the backup.

“Tuukka’s out tonight,” Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said on Thursday.

“He’ll get re-evaluated, and we’ll have a better idea tomorrow. But he won’t play tonight, Anton will start.”

“Sometimes with the injuries you look around and go ‘what’s next?’ But I think that’s a lousy approach to take,” Cassidy said. “I think Anton’s very excited to get a start tonight. … One door closes, another one opens. That’s the way you’ve got to look at it.”
