WILMINGTON — Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask told ESPNBoston and other outlets Wednesday that his recovery from an abdominal strain/groin strain is going well and that he hopes to be ready for the postseason.

‘€œI want to be back as soon as possible,’€ Rask said. ‘€œThe playoffs was, and is, the goal.’€

Rask said that he hopes to return to the ice at some point next week, with him hopefully being ready for game action following the soon after. The B’s will play their last game of the regular season next Saturday against the Sabres.

‘€œIt’€™s tough to speculate,’€ Rask said. ‘€œYou never know. We’€™ll see how it goes. Maybe I’€™ll hit the ice next week if everything goes good and go from there.’€

Rask leads the Bruins with a 2.05 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage. He had an 11-8-3 record with three shutouts in 23 games before suffering his injury against the Islanders on March 3.

If Rask is not ready in time for the first round of the playoffs, the B’s would likely go with Providence starter Anton Khudobin as the backup to Tim Thomas. The Bruins signed veteran goaltender Marty Turco following the injury to Rask, but Turco would not be eligible for postseason play because he was signed after the trade deadline.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced at Tuesday’s media day that the team waived goaltender Anton Khudobin on Monday. According to the Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa, Khudobin cleared waivers.

With Khudobin headed to Providence, it appears the current roster is the one that fans will see in Thursday night’s season-opener. The final shoe to drop will be the signing of veteran forward Chris Clark, who has been in camp on a tryout. Both Clark and Chiarelli said Tuesday that nothing has been finalized.
