Boston Bruins recall young goaltender Tuukka Rask from AHL again

BOSTON - Tuukka Rask is back with the Boston Bruins.

The 20-year-old goaltender was sent to Providence of the American Hockey League on Sunday and started in a 3-2 loss to Springfield. He was recalled by the NHL club on Monday.

It's the third time this season Rask has joined the Bruins. He's served as a backup in four games but has yet to make his NHL debut.

Boston's next game is Tuesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the team who drafted Rask 21st overall in 2005.

Rask is 7-2 with a 2.10 goals-against average in nine starts for Providence.
