Tuukka Rask of Bruins feels healthy enough to play

Boston goaltender left game Sunday with migraine headache @NHLdotcom

Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask said he feels healthy enough to play against the Detroit Red Wings at TD Garden on Tuesday (7 p.m. ET; SN, NESN, FS-D, NHL.TV).

Rask left Boston's game at the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday during the second period because of a migraine headache.

"You don't know what causes it but my guess is that the schedule's been so busy, lack of sleep and I got a little dehydrated," Rask said. "So that's the best guess I can get. But nobody really knows how to prevent it or what causes it. Just try to be as rested and hydrated as possible."

He was a full participant in the Bruins' optional morning skate Tuesday.

In 39 games Rask is 22-12-4 with a 2.11 goals-against average and .920 save percentage.
