The Boston Bruins suffered a brief scare when All-Star goaltender Tuukka Rask went down on the ice after taking a slap shot caught him below the mask from the Nashville Predators on Thursday, but luckily for the B’s he’s expected to get the start against the Philadelphia Flyers in a matinee Saturday tilt.
