Coming up on a stretch in their schedule where they'll play eight times during the next two weeks, the Bruins need as many healthy bodies as possible.

With that being said, the injury to goaltender Tuukka Rask during yesterday's 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders couldn't have been more ill-timed.

The 24-year-old stopped 11 of the 12 shots he faced before suffering an injury at 9:01 of the second period.

As New York forward Matt Martin fired a shot on the net, Rask, who was halfway down in his butterfly position, threw his glove up as he moved to his left when the shot was deflected and changed directions.

Immediately he fell down and had to be helped off the ice by defensemen Joe Corvo and Greg Zanon.

As Rask left, he didn't put any pressure on his left leg.
