Tuukka Rask to start for Bruins vs. Blues

Posted By DJ Bean On November 6, 2010 @ 6:30 pm In General | 1 Comment

Bruins coach Claude Julien [1] said late Saturday afternoon that Tuukka Rask [2] will be between the pipes for the B’s when they take on the Blues. Rask took the loss on Friday night in relief of Tim Thomas [3]. The 23-year-old played the third period and saw the B’s come back from a 3-0 deficit against the Capitals before John Carlson scored the game-winner for Washington.

In two starts this season, Rask has allowed seven goals and taken a pair of losses. He is 0-3-0 after falling to the Capitals on Friday.

Former Canadien Jaroslav Halak, who has put together an outstanding start to his first season in St. Louis (7-1-1, 1.53 goals against average, .940 save percentage) will be in net for the Blues. The Blues have an impressive 16 points to start the season, but have gone just 1-1-2 on the road.

Here are the anticipated lines for the B’s:

Lucic ‘€“ Krejci ‘€“ Horton
Caron ‘€“ Bergeron- Recchi
Wheeler -Seguin- Ryder
Marchand ‘€“ Campbell- Thornton

Chara ‘€“ Ference
Hunwick ‘€“ Seidenberg
Stuart ‘€“ McQuaid

Rask
Thomas
