After missing Saturday’s game versus the Toronto Maple Leafs, it appears goalie Tuukka Rask will return to the Boston Bruins lineup Monday.
Rask was a “little sore,” said coach Claude Julien, so the Bruins instead turned to back-up Anton Khudobin in Toronto and were defeated. Khudobin allowed three goals in the first period, as the young Leafs got off to a perfect start on home ice and basically cruised from there.
The Bruins, now 1-1 to begin the season, will face the Jets to wrap up a three-game road trip. Rask told reporters on Sunday that he’s feeling good and he’ll “definitely” be ready to return.
Good news for Boston.
