Will Tuukka Rask Play His Entire Career With the Bruins?

Tuukka Rask is statistically the best goalie in the NHL right now, but he's not even the No. 1 goalie on his own team. No, that honor would belong to Vezina- and Conn Smythe-winning teammate Tim Thomas, who led the Bruins to a 6-1 win over the Devils on Wednesday night. Rask is expected to get the start Thursday against the Calgary Flames, and he will bring the league's best...

Tuukka Rask Says He Wants to Stay in Boston, Wants 'Long Future' With Bruins

T im Thomas had an incredible, record-setting season in goal for the Bruins in 2010-11. This year, he's come out and put up even better numbers. Yet, despite that fact, Thomas' numbers aren't even the best on his own team. That's because Tuukka Rask has bounced back from something of an off-year last season to have what's been the best season of his young career...

Tuukka Rask's Pending Free-Agent Status Shouldn't Leave Bruins Fans Fearing for His Future in Boston

BOSTON -- Tuukka Rask has now allowed just a single goal in his last 276 minutes, 8 seconds of play. He's posted shutouts in three of his last four starts and leads the NHL with a microscopic 1.49 goals-against average and a .949 save percentage. And yet there are some Bruins fans who still can find the negative in the fact that the club has arguably the top two netminders in...

Tuukka Rask, Tim Thomas Pushing Each Other Towards Goalie Dominance With 'Top Gun'-Style Competition

Tuukka Rask and Tim Thomas are on top of their respective games right now. Rask leads the league in goals-against average and save percentage, but Thomas is right on his tail in both categories, making the Bruins goalies the top 1-2 goalie punch in the world right now. The way that Rask and Thomas have been able to push each other to play their best is impressive, considering how...

Tim Thomas Rebounds From Shaky Outing, Shows He's Not Ready to Relinquish Top Spot to Tuukka Rask Just Yet

Any thinking that Tim Thomas might be ready to relinquish his hold on the Bruins' No. 1 netminding job would be sadly mistaken. After allowing a season-high four goals in Saturday's 4-2 loss in Dallas, Thomas could have been feeling a little pressure, even though his numbers this season are actually better than his league-leading goals-against average and NHL-record save...

Bruins Get Extra Morning Rest As They Prepare to Face Flames in Second Game in As Many Nights

The Bruins will play their second game in as many nights Thursday at the Garden when they host Calgary, and to help keep the team's legs fresh during this challenging stretch of the schedule the Bruins did not hold a morning skate. Without a skate there was no official word on the goaltending, but Tuukka Rask is likely to get the start after Tim Thomas stopped 30 of the 31 shots...
