Still no word on Rask injury

NEW YORK -- A whole 24 hours have passed and the Bruins still have no update on Bs goaltender Tuukka Rask.

The 24-year-old Finnish netminder went down midway through the second period of Saturdays loss to the New York Islanders when his left leg gave out on him, and the Bruins held him back from their two-game road trip through New York and Toronto.

Rask had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee last summer, so there is some suspicion thats the injury hes suffering from after he exited the TD Garden in crutches Saturday night following the game.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli had no update on Tuukka Rask following Sundays 4-3 loss to the Rangers, and instead said the full evaluation wouldnt be made until Monday.

The Bruins expect an update on Tuukka Rask tomorrow, after the full evaluation is completed was the only official statement the team would make on Sunday.

There are a number of possibilities, but its likely that doctors are waiting for the swelling to go down before making a specific determination on the left leg injury.

MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL: Wentz tosses 4 TDs, Eagles beat Redskins, 34-24

PHILADELPHIA - Carson Wentz tossed four touchdown passes, and the Philadelphia Eagles overcame losing nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters in a 34-24 win over the Washington Redskins on Monday night.

Wentz threw for 268 yards and ran for a career-best 63 after a shaky start to lead the NFL-best Eagles (6-1) to their fifth straight win. But the victory was costly because Peters was carted off the field with a knee injury in the third quarter.

Kirk Cousins had 303 yards passing and three TDs for the Redskins (3-3).

The Eagles went three-and-out three times in their first four drives and had only 57 total yards before Wentz hit Mack Hollins in stride with a perfect 64-yard TD pass to tie it at 10.

That got the offense rolling.

Wentz connected with Zach Ertz for 46 yards on the next series and found him again for a 4-yard TD pass to make it 17-10.

After getting the second-half kickoff, the Eagles drove 86 yards for another touchdown. Peters was injured during the series, and fans chanted his name while teammates surrounded the cart.

Wentz finished the drive off with a play that Peters would appreciate.

While being hit by two defenders and falling forward, Wentz lofted a 9-yard TD pass to Corey Clement.

Wentz fired a 10-yard TD pass to Nelson Agholor to expand the lead to 31-17. Wentz kept that drive alive by escaping a sack and running 17 yards on third-and-8.

Cousins tossed a 7-yard touchdown pass to Chris Thompson to give the Redskins a 10-3 lead. He connected with Jordan Reed on a 5-yard TD to cut the deficit to 24-17 and threw a 12-yard pass to Reed to cap the scoring.

The Eagles were penalized on four straight plays to start their first possession before Wentz was intercepted by Quinton Dunbar on a deep pass to Torrey Smith on second-and-31.

Philadelphia swept Washington for the first time since 2013 and has a commanding lead in the NFC East. The Cowboys and Redskins are tied for second place.
