Tuukka Rask To Start 12th Straight Game Saturday Vs. Maple Leafs

The Boston Bruins have gotten their money’s worth with goalie Tuukka Rask this season.

The B’s have relied heavily on the All-Star goaltender, as Rask has started in net for 43 of the team’s 54 games. Rask’s workload will continue Saturday, as he’s expected to be between the pipes for the 12th straight game when the Bruins take on the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Head coach Claude Julien is mindful of Rask’s usage, but understands that when it comes to fighting for a playoff spot, you have to go with your best option.
