Tuukka Rask has been stellar between the pipes for the Bruins so far, so coach Claude Julien appears ready to ride his goalie’s hot streak.
Rask will start his fourth straight game to start the season on Friday night, with Rick DiPietro getting the nod for the Islanders for his first start since 2011. It would appear to be a matchup slanted in the Bruins’ favor, but DiPietro is the ultimate “rested” goalie and could surprise some observers if he returns to the form New York hopes he can.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette has his interest piqued by this one. See why in the above video.
