No news is no news regarding Tuukka Rask

From NHL.com:

Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask had to be helped off the ice after rookie forward Anders Bjork collided with him in front of the net during practice Wednesday.

Rask did not return and there was no immediate word on his condition. The Bruins play the Vancouver Canucks at TD Garden on Thursday (7 p.m. ET; SN360, TVA Sports, NESN, NHL.TV).

"He left early obviously," coach Bruce Cassidy told the Bruins website. "We had a line-rush drill where there was some contact around the net. He'll get evaluated. I've got nothing right now; hopefully he's fine. Until he gets checked out, I don't know. That's where it's at right now."

Bjork appeared to be knocked off balance before the collision. Teammates immediately rushed to Rask's assistance and he was helped off the ice after a couple of minutes.

"It was incidental contact on a hard drill," Cassidy said. "We're trying to build in more net action and net drive. I guess that's the spillover from it sometimes."
