The Bruins are gearing up for their bye week, which begins on Monday and runs through Friday.
With games on back-to-back days this weekend, it would make sense for the Bruins to get in a game for each goalie.
However, with Tuukka Rask playing out of his mind as of late, should he get the start Saturday and, if he wins, Sunday too?
No, says Bruce Cassidy.
Tuukka Rask says on NHL Network he expects to play Sunday in Pittsburgh before the bye. Looks like Anton Khudobin on Saturday at home vs Carolina.— Jake Reiser (@JakeReiser) January 6, 2018
Well there you have it!
Tuukka Rask will start Sunday against the Pittsburgh Penguins, while Anton Khudobin will get his game Saturday night against the Carolina Hurricanes.
It’s a pretty easy call, really. It might be tempting to ride Rask through Sunday if he started and won Saturday night, but Khudobin hasn’t played since the 28th of December.
If he didn’t get a game in this weekend, he’d be looking at more than two full weeks off (at least).
