WILMINGTON -- Tuukka Rask is tied for the NHL lead in wins with 10. Four of which came during the Bruins latest five-game road trip.

Those were the only four games that Rask played in. Backup Anton Khudobin picked up the only loss of the trip, in Buffalo.

Rask has now made 30-plus saves in his last two games, and he's dominating all while knowing it's a contract year.

But he said, after Wednesday's practice, that he's not worried about that.

"No, not really. You've got to stay hungry no matter what," said Rask. "If you have a big contract, you still have to play. If you don't, you still have to play. I just try not to think about that too much."

So have there been any recent contract talks?

"I don't know," said Rask. "Probably not. I haven't heard anything too crazy yet. Maybe. We'll see. I don't have to go talk to the GM. I have an agent for that."
