2018-02-10 analysis This was Rask's first regulation loss since Nov. 26. The Bruins came up against a hungry squad and an excellent performance from Sabres' back-up, Chad Johnson. Rask had to lose at some point. He's not perfect (although pretty darn close).

2018-01-07 analysis Rask made some ridiculous saves to actually help the Bruins earn a point Sunday, but he probably would like a few back as well.

2018-01-03 analysis Rask was absolutely stupendous to finish off 2017, accumulating 10 wins, a .952 save percentage, and 1.29 GAA in his final 12 appearances of the year. The Finnish goalie will look to keep up the momentum in his first game of 2018, as he will have the chance to face a usually potent Islanders squad that has posted just three goals in its last two contests, both of which were losses. This was expected to be a high-scoring affair, but Rask made sure that was only true for one side. He held New York off the board after a Jordan Eberle tally in the first half of the opening frame while denying all four of the home team's power-play opportunities.

Rask has been lights-out in December, going 9-0-1 with two shutouts and just 13 goals allowed in 10 starts. That's good enough to make him the top fantasy goaltender in that period.

The netminder has been rolling recently, as he has registered a 6-0-1 record with a 1.59 GAA and should be up to the challenge. The Finn entered with a 6-0-1 record, .937 save percentage and 1.59 GAA through his past eight appearances, so this was another solid showing. Rask has put an underwhelming start behind him, and the Bruins are now 7-2-1 through their past 10 contests.

It's no coincidence that in that span the team has gradually gotten hea Though Rask picked up his fifth win in six games, it was a rather pedestrian night for him. His offense and defense had a lot more to do with the win than he did, as the Bruins outshot the Jackets 45-18 and made life miserable for Sergei Bobrovsky. Rask will gladly take the result, but fantasy owners won't be so happy with two consecutive sub-par starts from the Finn.
