Bruins coach Claude Julien said after practice that he would not commit to any goalie until first consulting with Rask prior to the game. He did say that the team is taking precautions and that if he was not healthy enough to play he wouldn't be on the bench as a backup.
"We'll probably bring a goalie in here for game time if [Rask] isn't feeling well," Julien said. "He talked to me this morning and was feeling a little better so we'll see."
The Bruins recalled goaltender Jeremy Smith from Providence of the American Hockey League as an insurance policy.
