Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask will return to the crease against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday, according to Boston Sports Journal's Connor Ryan.

Rask had an illness and did not dress for the Bruins' 4-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday.

The 33-year-old netminder allowed three goals on 20 shots over 29:54 of action against the Columbus Blue Jackets in exhibition play last week.

Rask enjoyed a strong 2019-20 campaign, posting a 26-8-6 record with a league-leading 2.12 goals-against average and .929 save percentage.

The Finnish puck-stopper boasts impressive postseason numbers with a 2.19 GAA and .927 SV% in 89 career playoff appearances.
