Goalie nods: Looks like Gustavsson is starting over Rask

3 Comments

Two days after another tough night for Tuukka Rask, it looks like Jonas Gustavsson will get the start for the Boston Bruins, who are in Brooklyn to face the Islanders tonight.

Rask allowed five goals to the Flyers in an overtime loss on Wednesday. His save percentage sits at .854.

“I’ve let in some bad goals,” Rask told CSN New England. “[Wednesday] maybe I should have one [more save], but you know overall I felt pretty good and a lot of times…I always look at the goals, if I could have done something differently…I wouldn’t call it a struggle. But then again you let in five, four goals every game…[you] can’t be pretty happy about that.”

Gustavsson’s only start was a win, a 20-save effort last Wednesday in a 6-2 drubbing of Colorado.

Jaroslav Halak will be in goal for the Islanders.
