Tuukka Rask's return to the Boston Bruins on Thursday night was shortlived.

The B's goaltender, who had been out since March 7 due to back discomfort, lasted only one period vs. the New York Islanders before leaving with an upper-body injury.

It's unclear whether this is a re-aggravation of the same injury Rask has been dealing with or if it's a new ailment.

If the Bruins hold on to take down the Islanders, Rask still will earn his 300th career win.
