Rask to start vs. Reimer

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins will start Tuukka Rask in net tonight against Toronto at the TD Garden. Toronto counters with James Reimer.

Rask brings a 3-3-1 record with a 2.25 goals-against average and .921 save percentage into the game against the team that originally drafted him. He last played on Nov. 25 in a shootout loss to Detroit, the only loss by the Bruins in more than a month.

Tim Thomas, the Bruins' usual goaltender has a nine-game winning streak that will apparently stay at that number for one more night. 

Reimer will be playing for the first time since Oct. 22, when he was hit by Montreal's Brian Gionta. He's been out with what the Leafs labeled "concussion-like symptoms."

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
