Hopefully everything is OK with the Finnish netminder.

Some troubling news from Bruins PR today:

"Effective today, Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask has been granted a leave of absence relating to a personal matter."

Yikes.

It's not worth speculating on what's going on with Rask, so here's to hoping that everything is OK.

Expect the Bruins to call a goalie up from Providence shortly.
