The Boston Bruins are hoping to get goaltender Tuukka Rask back as soon as possible. After a round-robin series loss to the Philadelphia Flyers, the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Bruins are looking to maintain their seeding as the top team in the NHL. It’s easier to do if Rask is in the net.

That said, the status of the veteran netminder is unclear on Monday.

Deputy managing editor, for NHL.com, Adam Kimelman notes that Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy provided an update yesterday. Rask is still deemed unfit to play but Cassidy explained:

“We were told last night that he would be unavailable so we let Jaro know. Then it was going to be a day-to-day thing. We expect and hope that he’ll be back in the net Wednesday. Let’s see if he’s on the ice tomorrow. Probably can give you a better idea then how he’s feeling. And we’ll go from there with Tuukka. Obviously he’s an important part of our team. My understanding is he is feeling better.”

Jaroslav Halak did what he could but the Bruins loss to the Flyers was one in a series of “upsets” this weekend as lower-seeded teams beat higher-seeded ones with regularity. He stopped 25 shots starting in place of the Rask, who broke a finger on his left hand before the start of training camp.

The Bruins will get back to action on Wednesday as they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning.
