Bruins’ Tuukka Rask Takes Leave Of Absence For Personal Matter

Bruins’ Tuukka Rask Takes Leave Of Absence For Personal Matter

Bruins GM Don Sweeney addressed reporters shortly after the announcement, saying that Rask's leave of absence is not health-related. Rask did not start for the Bruins in Thursday's 8-5 loss to the Vancouver Canucks, but he relieved starter Jaroslav Halak after Halak surrendered 5 goals in just under 35 minutes of ice time.

Coming off the loss on Thursday night in which they allowed a season-high eight goals, the team is focused on bouncing back even with Rask out of the lineup. He earned a win against Dallas on Monday night, allowing one goal after he hadn't picked up a win since October 23 against Ottawa.

"I was just trying to keep it under 10 [goals allowed] - that's what I was anxious about", Rask said after the 8-5 loss. "But yeah, you know, like I said, a loss is a loss, it doesn't really matter at the end of the day".
