Tuukka Rask gets the start vs. Coyotes

It appears Tim Thomas’ will extend until Saturday, as the Bruins will ride the hot hand and give Wednesday’s start to Tuukka Rask.
Rask, who has picked up shutouts in his last two starts, was first off the ice at Wednesday’s morning skate, suggesting he’ll be between the pipes against the Coyotes. The Finnish netminder’s shutout streak is currently at 155:10, as he did not allow a goal on Dec. 10 when he played the third period in relief of Thomas against Columbus.
Rask is 7-4-1 this season with a 1.66 goals against average and a league-best .944 save percentage.
