Bruins' Rask ready for heavy workload again if needed

MIDDLETON, Mass. -- With about a month remaining before the start of training camp, Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask said he isn't any worse for wear after the most taxing season of his NHL career.

Rask played a career-high 70 games last season for the Bruins, who would've needed more from the 2014 Vezina Trophy winner had they not missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time in eight years.

Surprisingly, the 28-year-old said it didn't take too long for him to recover from the grind of the 2014-15 season. Rask recently returned to the Boston area and Monday participated in the Putts and Punches for Parkinson's Golf Tournament, hosted by former Bruins forward Shawn Thornton, at Ferncroft Country Club.

"Not crazy," Rask said about his offseason recovery time. "I think obviously it's mentally draining when you're battling for that playoff spot and you play a lot of games in a row and stuff like that. You always feel kind of exhausted afterwards. But then when you do nothing for a week or two, then you're kind of like, 'All right, let's play hockey again.' You're kind of rejuvenated. I didn't feel like I took too much time than usual."

Add of Niemi gives Stars faith in goaltending tandem

Dallas Stars owner Tom Gagliardi had one very good reason to add Antti Niemi to Kari Lehtonen on their goaltending depth chart.

"I think it is pretty hard on Kari when we give him a night off and we never win," Gagliardi told the Stars website last week.

The Stars signed Niemi to a three-year contract on June 29 after acquiring him in a trade with the San Jose Sharks. He is expected to compete with Lehtonen for the No. 1 job, though it is more likely they will split time almost evenly.

Cullen chasing another Cup title with Penguins

Monday, 08.10.2015 / 9:00 AM / News


Matt Cullen has been around long enough to know his NHL career is nearing an end. The 38-year-old forward signed with the Pittsburgh Penguins last week with the intention of winning the Stanley Cup one more time.

"You don't get many opportunities to make a run at a Stanley Cup," Cullen told the Penguins website. "Having been there once before, I understand how hard it is to get there and I'd just love to get another chance at it. I've lost to Pittsburgh twice in the playoffs (in 2009 with the Carolina Hurricanes and 2010 with the Ottawa Senators), so it'll be fun to be on their side going after it instead of chasing them around."
