Still no word on Rask injury

NEW YORK -- A whole 24 hours have passed and the Bruins still have no update on Bs goaltender Tuukka Rask.

The 24-year-old Finnish netminder went down midway through the second period of Saturdays loss to the New York Islanders when his left leg gave out on him, and the Bruins held him back from their two-game road trip through New York and Toronto.

Rask had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee last summer, so there is some suspicion thats the injury hes suffering from after he exited the TD Garden in crutches Saturday night following the game.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli had no update on Tuukka Rask following Sundays 4-3 loss to the Rangers, and instead said the full evaluation wouldnt be made until Monday.

The Bruins expect an update on Tuukka Rask tomorrow, after the full evaluation is completed was the only official statement the team would make on Sunday.

There are a number of possibilities, but its likely that doctors are waiting for the swelling to go down before making a specific determination on the left leg injury.

Update: Stork contemplates retirement in wake of trade to Redskins

When word leaked this morning that the Patriots would release center Bryan Stork, the first question that popped to many people's minds was: "Couldn't they have traded him?"

Well, hours after the news broke, they apparently did:

And a few minutes later, Ian Rapoport came through with more information:

But now, as reported by CSN Mid-Atlantic's JP Finlay, the deal might not happen:
