Bruins injury thread III
Concussion aside, I'm nervous about Tuuka's Neck. Whiplash can cause concussion symptoms that just dont go away for months/years.
Bruins’ Tuukka Rask leaves game with concussion after nasty collision - The Boston Globe
Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask was helped off the ice and to the dressing room after suffering a concussion during Saturday’s game against the New York Rangers at TD Garden.
Rask was shaken up with 1:28 left in the first period, on a high-speed collision with Rangers winger Filip Chytil.
Chytil, a speedy 19-year-old rookie, plowed into the goalie when he scored to tie the game at 1. On an end-to-end rush, Chytil had a full head of steam as he headed toward the crease, made a quick deke in tight and roofed a shot on Rask. Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy bumped Chytil and sent him airborne. Chytil’s hip and rear hit Rask in the face, sending the netminder tumbling backward. Rask’s head, the principal point of contact, jolted backward. It may have hit the iron as he fell.
Rest up Tuukka.
I hope you will be well soon for your sake FIRST and the B's next.
Poor guy was probably going into this break thinking, "I am just going to chill the f out." Now, ugh... Get better and rest up.
My personal feeling it's a mild concussion. Nothing severe he was talking and alert to trainers and got up ok . He looked woozy but that's expected considering the hit and luckily he looked ok.
Hopefully Rask and Nordy are back so we can get the lines straightened out after the layoff.
Thank you. Dr. Don.
He looked fairly out of it when he was helped past us but I hope you are correct.

they have 9 days off...doubt we know anything for a while.

‘It is day-to-day’ for Tuukka Rask right now, his agent says - The Boston Globe
Tuukka Rask, who departed the Garden ice Saturday night dazed and rubber-legged, has the benefit of the Bruins “bye” week before possibly reporting back to work for Monday’s practice with rest of his Black-and-Gold teammates.
In an email exchange with the Globe late Tuesday morning, Rask’s agent noted he believes there isn’t “anything to be too concerned about” in regard to the franchise goaltender’s recovery.
“I think,” added the agent, Brett Peterson, “it is day-to-day for him right now.”
Better news than I expected. Thanks!!
Rest up Tuukka. B's will be needing you
Kind of strange seeing a players agent give an injury update.
Fair if you’re recovering from a concussion
given that it’s tuukka, makes even more sense. He’s kind of an ornery,private, dude
Tukka time . He's a warrior. Halak has taken a lot of pressure from him so he should be healthy for playoffs.
Makes sense to me given the bye week, team probably wont release anything till after all star game
I never thought I would be saying this but I totally agree
The B's have been extremely fortunate to go from Thomas to Rask.
Rask is elite, and his numbers prove it. Sure he has a bad week or two. Lets in an easy goal or two, but
you watch any goalie enough, and you'll see the same thing. For those who have only watched Rask and Thomas, do some research and look at the goalie carousel prior to Thomas. I just hope when Rask is done here they have someone close to his ability.
There was a big gap between Moog/Lemelin and Thomas/Rask.
