Rask will start Wednesday in Calgary.

Rask gave up two goals on 34 shots in the Bruins win over the Red Wings on Saturday. After an opening night loss, Rask has won two in a row while stopping 60 of 65 shots (.923 SV%). Tonight he will face the 3-2-0 Flames, who are eighth in the NHL in scoring (3.60 GF/per game) so far.

Rask will start Saturday vs. the Red Wings.

Rask allowed three goals on 31 shots in the Bruins win over the Senators on Monday afternoon. It was a nice bounce-back effort from Rask, but he will need to play well to stay ahead of Jaroslav Halak on the depth chart. He is a must-start on Saturday vs. the Red Wings—he was 3-0-0 with a 1.67 GAA and .946 SV% vs. Detroit last year.

Halak will start Thursday vs. the Oilers.

Halak stopped all 32 shots that he faced in the Bruins shutout win in Buffalo last Thursday. It was an excellent first start for the veteran netminder, who will start again tonight with Tuukka Rask struggling a bit to start the season. The Oilers looked bad in their first game, but a Connor McDavid led team is always dangerous.

Rask will start Monday afternoon vs. the Senators.

Rask was yanked after allowing five goals on 19 shots in the Bruins blowout loss in Washington on opening night. After sitting and watching Jaroslav Halak in the Bruins second-game, Rask will get the call against the Senators this afternoon. Rask was 3-0-0 with a 1.00 GAA, .959 SV% and one shutout vs. Ottawa last year.

Halak will start Thursday in Buffalo.

Halak replaced Tuukka Rask in the Bruins 7-0 loss to the Capitals on Wednesday. Halak entered the game when it was 5-0 and ended up stopping 16 of 18 shots (.889 SV%) in his Bruins debut. Halak was originally scheduled to start on Thursday, and Bruce Cassidy will stick with him despite both goalies playing on Wednesday.

Halak is projected to start Thursday in Buffalo.

Halak was originally scheduled to start on Thursday, but Bruce Cassidy wouldn’t say who would start after Wednesday’s game, since both goalies played vs. Washington.

Rask will start Wednesday’s season opener in Washington.

Rask started 60-plus games from 2015-to-2017 but was limited to just 53 starts in 2018. Despite a few less starts for the ageing netminder, Rask won 34 games with a 2.36 GAA, .917 SV% and three shutouts. Playing behind one of the strongest teams in the NHL, Rask should be in-line for a lot of wins in 2019, but draws a tough matchup out of the gate. Rask was 13-8-2 with a 2.51 GAA, .915 SV% and three shutouts on the road last year.

Bergeron (back) is expected to be ready for the Bruins season opener.

Bergeron got rid of his non-contact jersey during Monday’s practice and centred the top line with Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak on his wings. After the session, head coach Bruce Cassidy said he “anticipates [Bergeron] will be good to go for Wednesday.” Bergeron missed 18 games last season, but was on-pace for a career-high in goals (38) and points (80). A healthy season on a dominant Bruins’ top line could make Bergeron a point-per-game player in 2019.
