    Rask, 22, has been sidelined since March 3 with a lower abdomen/groin strain that was suffered in the Bruins’ 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders.

    The injury was initially expected to keep Rask out of action for four-to-six weeks. The Bruins added veteran netminder Marty Turco to take Rask’s place as Tim Thomas’ backup.

    Rask has played in 23 games during the 2011-12 season, compiling a 11-8-3 record, while holding a 2.05 goals against average and notching three shutouts

    This would very good news if we could get Rask to start a game before the playoffs. I think we would all like to see that.

    Perfect timing. I hope he is not being rushed.

    Not to rain on anyone's parade... he hasn't even strapped on skates yet. Let's not get ahead of ourselves until we see #40 taking the ice.  I bet Washington though Vokoun was back as well.  That didn't even last the first period.
