Tuukka Rask stopped 20-of-21 shots as the Boston Bruins defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 Tuesday night.
Has has finally rebounded off two straight starts that were duds. With 25 wins and just 81 goals against, Rask has been fantasy hockey's top netminder this season. He'll start again Thursday when the Bruins host Tampa Bay in the second of the home-and-home series.
Tuukka Rask allowed four goals on 30 shots as the Bruins fell to the Flames 5-2 in Boston Tuesday night.

Tuukka Rask allowed one goal on 38 shots as the Bruins topped the Winnipeg Jets in their return from the All-Star break Friday night.
Rask has complied a 18-4-6 record with a 2.23 goals-against average in 29 appearances this season. He's healthy after suffering a concussion and spending some time on IR pre-break. Jaroslav Halak is expected to get the start in net for Boston in Minneapolis against the Wild.
Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
The move comes two days after Rask suffered a concussion due to a questionable elbow to the head by Columbus Blue Jackets rookie Emil Bemstrom. He's unlikely to start again until after the All-Star break.
