Rask injured, replaced by Thomas
By James Murphy
Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask appeared to suffer a lower-body injury while making a split save 9:01 into the second period.
He immediately fell to the ice in pain, and the game was stopped. He was unable to put any weight on his left leg as he was helped off the ice. Tim Thomas replaced him in net.
Rask had stopped 11 of 12 Islanders shots at that point and left with the score tied 1-1. There was no immediate word from the Bruins regarding his condition.
