CSNNE.comBOSTON Tuukka Rask gets the call for the Bruins on Saturday afternoon a week after a mercurial appearance against the Toronto Maple Leafs that ended with Rask and Dennis Seidenberg at odds after a Keith Aulie goal that made it 5-1.Rask gets a chance to shake off that game by starting against the New York Rangers after being the first goaltender out of the chute at TD Garden for the pregame skate, and improve on career numbers of .944 save percentage and 1.76 goals against average against the Rags in four appearances against them.Rask is 5-1-1 in his last seven games, and will go against Henrik Lundqvist, who leads the NHL with 10 shutouts this season. Sean Avery will be back in the lineup for the Rangers after several healthy scratches in his last four games, and the lineup will be the same for the Bruins.That means healthy scratches for Steve Kampfer and Daniel Paille for the third straight game.
