Reports are coming out that Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask will get the start against the Detroit Red Wings when the two teams do battle tonight from the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan.

The 29-year-old Rask has a 3-0 record in the early 2016-17 NHL campaign and has an impressive 1.68 goals-against-average, and .947 save percentage. What many call “general soreness” the Bruins starter has been battling a lower body injury which could’ve been a result of his participation in the 2016 World Cup which took place last month and had him miss the majority of Bruins training camp.
Looks like Tuukka Rask is back in. If so, Zane McIntyre will be the No. 2.

It boggles mind that callers are still ringing in to @985TheSportsHub Hockey Show to trade Tuukka Rask. Have they not watched last 3 gms?
