On Cross Check, Michael Felger wonders why Tuukka Rask was playing in the second night of back-to-backs for the Bruins. It worked out fine with the B's beating the Coyotes 2-1 after their victory over the Canadiens the night before.

Still, do the Bruins need to be cautious and rest players such as Rask and Zdeno Chara as the playoffs near.

Mike Milbury doesn't think so.

"I think you have to be careful when you start sitting players out," Milbury told Felger. "They lose their rhythm. He's only been a number one goalie for a year and a half. He can certainly take the work. And I think [coach] Claude Julien's point was an excellent one. He has a relationship with these players and they can tell him when they're tired."
