WILMINGTON — Bruins coach Claude Julien said Wednesday that the Bruins expect goalie Tuukka Rask to start the team’s preseason opener against the Senators in Ottawa and play the full 60 minutes.
“He should play the whole 60 minutes barring how he feels and everything else,” Julien said. “We kind of told him we’d gauge it as he goes along, but if he feels good, I’ll probably leave him in there for the whole 60.”
Rask made 15 saves on 16 shots in a little more than a period and a half of Tuesday’s black and white scrimmage.
