Officials said the injury occurred during the team's practice on Wednesday. It happened when Anders Bjork "crashed" into Rask during a drill, according to NBC Sports Boston's Joe Haggerty.More news: United States stocks close mixed amid earnings reports
Rask, 30, is 1-3-0 with a 3.30 goals-against average and.882 save percentage in four games this season. Not long after he went down in practice, the Bruins announced forward Ryan Spooner will miss 4-6 weeks with a groin injury. However, the 32-year-old pivot's owners shouldn't hesitate to slot him into their lineups, as he'll be occupying his usual role against the Canucks, centering the Bruins' top line and first power-play unit. Coach Bruce Cassidy had called Bergeron a game-time decision after Bergeron wore a non-contact jersey during the morning skate.
