Rask went to the quiet room where he was checked for a concussion and Jaroslav Halak, who allowed six goals on Monday night in Boston's 6-5 shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers, replaced him. Coach Bruce Cassidy said after the game that Rask did indeed have a concussion.

Rask also had a concussion last January in the final game before the All-Star break.
