UPDATE: Okay, not so good after all. Dude’s groin/abdominal is pretty roughed up and Rask will now miss 4-6 weeks with a strain. Ouch.
Is losing Tuukka Rask, a so-called back up goalie, really as bad as we are making it out to be? Hopefully not, because it looks like Tuukka will be missing some serious time. Tuukka did not play during the Bruins’ Stanely Cup run last season, but without Rask Tim Thomas will be getting a lot of minutes in the coming weeks which could become a problem for the goalie who will be turning 38-years-old next month. Not great, but in a drastic move the Bruins signed Marty Turco to reach their outrageous quota of wicked old goalies. check.
