Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask left Thursday’s game against the New York Islanders after one period with an upper-body injury.
The Bruins were returning to action after not playing Saturday against the Buffalo Sabres and Tuesday against the Islanders because of COVID-19 concerns.
Rask was dealing with an undisclosed injury before the Bruins went their COVID-19 pause this week but had been cleared to return to action in advance of Thursday’s game.
Jaroslav Halak took over in goal for the Bruins in the second period.
Rask entered 8-4-2 in 14 starts this season. He had a .906 save percentage and a 2.46 goals-against average. The veteran of 14 seasons is one victory shy of 300 for his career.
