Bruins coach Claude Julien made the unusual move after the morning skate of confirming that Rask will start Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings at TD Garden. It would be hard to blame Julien for once again turning to Rask.
In January, Rask has a 6-1-3 record, .947 save percentage and 1.67 goals-against average. Rask had a rougher time in December with a .896 save percentage and 2.98 GAA.
"Yeah, I feel good out there. I've felt pretty good all year," Rask said. "Obviously now the luck has been on our side more a little bit now and I feel more confident now. But taking strides, that's good."
