News: Rask allowed one goal on 24 shots in Friday's 1-0 loss to Detroit in Game 1 of the teams' Atlantic Division semifinal series. Impact: Rask was beaten late in the third period on a tremendous individual effort from Pavel Datsyuk he may not have seen completely. Rask played well in the game, but so did his counterpart, Jimmy Howard. Rask is the frontrunner for the Vezina Trophy and the Bruins will ride their star goalie every night of the playoffs.(RotoWire, )

News: Rask made 24 saves in Saturday's win over Buffalo. Impact: Rask and the B's will face the Wings in the postseason.(STATS, 11:10am)
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: Rask stopped all but one of the 21 shots he faced in Saturday's win over the Sabres. He also picked up the second assist on a David Krejci power-play goal. Impact: Rask is now 36-15-6 on the season with a .930 save percentage and a 2.04 GAA. He leads the NHL with seven shutouts and is a frontrunner for the Vezina Trophy. Good job if you drafted him in fantasy hockey this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Rask will start Saturday's game against the Sabres. Impact: The Bruins will roll with Rask -- who gave way to Chad Johnson in Thursday's shootout loss to the Jets -- on Saturday against Buffalo, but we wouldn't be surprised to see Johnson get the nod Sunday against the Devils, in the team's regular-season finale.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 11, 2014
News: Rask gave way to Chad Johnson in Thursday's shootout loss to the Jets. Impact: Once the playoffs start, Rask will be locked in as the B's starter in goal, but with the Bruins resting key players selectivity down the stretch, we'd expect Rask to give up another start to Johnson -- either Saturday against Buffalo or Sunday against New Jersey -- to close out the team's regular-season slate.(RotoWire, )

News: Rask was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is expected to receive the starting nod Thursday against the Jets, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Impact: Rask lost for the second time in three contests Tuesday against the Wild, giving up three goals on 24 shots before falling in the shootout. He's still been magnificent in the net for the last month-plus, and remains worth using on any night he's in goal.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Rask stopped just 21 of 24 in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Wild. Impact: Rask hasn't exactly looked sharp as the season's wound down, allowing three goals in three of his last four starts. Still, that won't put much of a damper on his Vezina-worthy campaign.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Rask will indeed be in the crease Thursday against the Wild. Impact: Rask led the Bruins onto the ice for pregame warmups and will enter the contest in search of his 36th win of the season.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Rask is on track to start Tuesday's game against the Wild. Impact: The start will be the 57th of the season for Rask, who figures to defer to backup Chad Johnson in at least one of the B's remaining three games following Tuesday's contest.(RotoWire, )
Apr 6, 2014
News: Rask stopped 24 of 26 shot attempts in Saturday's win over the Flyers. Impact: It's just another day at the office for Rask, who could have the inside track on his first career Vezina Trophy once the season concludes. He's compiled a 35-15-5 record to go along with a 2.04 GAA and .930 save percentage in 56 outings.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: Rask will start Saturday's game against the Flyers. Impact: Rask, who returns to the Boston net after giving way to Chad Johnson on Thursday, is slated to square off against Ray Emery on Saturday, as the B's try to halt a two-game skid.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Mar 31, 2014
News: Rask made a whopping 49 saves in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win at Philadelphia. Impact: Rask went 9-1-1 in March while compiling a 1.69 GAA. He remains one of the best goalies in the game.(STATS, 5:24pm)
