Bruins’ Rask out due to ‘general soreness’


Boston Bruins’ goaltender Tuukka Rask did not dress for tonight’s game against the Buffalo Sabres due to general soreness the club announced.

Rask, who made 36 saves in Boston’s 2-0 loss to the Washington Capitals on Sunday, is 29-17-10 this season to go along with a 2.26 G.A.A. and a .924 save percentage.

Jeremy Smith is backing up Niklas Svedberg tonight. The Bruins recalled Smith on an emergency basis earlier in the day.

The 25-year-old is 17-8-5 to go along with a 1.96 G.A.A. and a .936 save in 30 games with the Providence Bruins this season.
