Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask acknowledged that offseason surgery is an option for a nagging injury that limited him in their six-game series loss to the Islanders in the East Division Final.

Rask wouldn't disclose the nature of his ailments after the Bruins' 6-2 loss to the Islanders in Game 6 on Wednesday night, which eliminated Boston from the playoffs. "I don't think that needs to be the headline now," said the goalie, who stopped 23 of 27 shots in the loss.
