Late in the second period the Bruins' best player so far this season, Tuukka Rask, had to be pulled and replaced by Zane McIntyre. As every Bruins fans could all but imagine the worst of scenarios, we watched helplessly Claude Julien's team crumble in the third period, like the soul of the team left its body.

What happened with Tuukka Rask?

Following the game, the Finnish netminder confirmed to the reporters in Pittsburgh that he suffered a migraine attack in the middle of the game and wasn't able to continue playing. This is not the first time as Tuukka Rask dealt with a similar case in March 2015.

The Bruins will be up against the Red Wings tuesday and it isn't known yet if Tuukka Rask will be part of the lineup. Hopefully, he will.
