A bad start to the season officially got worse on Thursday as the Boston Bruins announced that Tuukka Rask has been diagnosed with a concussion.

If Rask is unable to go tonight against the Canucks at the Garden, that would mean Anton Khudobin would most likely get his second start of the year and Zane McIntyre would get the call-up. Having a roster in flux while you're trying to find some consistency will be a tough ask for head coach Bruce Cassidy and his players.

Goaltender Tuukka Rask had to be helped off the ice after suffering an injury during the Bruins' Wednesday practice at the Warrior Ice Arena in Brighton, according to multiple reports. "We were doing 3-on-2s, so it was kind of fast play, don't really know what happened".

The Bruins are 2-3-0 on the season with a minus-4 goal differential.
