Atlantic Division captain David Pastrnak will not be the only Bruins representation at the 2020 NHL All-Star Game, as he'll be joined by goaltender Tuukka Rask at this year's festivities in St. Louis.

Rask's honor, the second of his NHL career, comes in the midst of a season that's come with a 15-4-5 record for the Atlantic-best Bruins.

Rask has also dazzled with a .923 save percentage (fourth-best among NHL goalies with at least 20 appearances) and 2.31 goals against average (second-best among that same group). The 32-year-old Rask has also posted a .931 save percentage at even-strength (the third-best in the league).

He'll be joined by the Leafs' Frederik Andersen (19-8-4 with a .914 save percentage) as the other Atlantic Division goaltender.

Pastrnak and Rask will actually be the only two B's going to St. Louis (as of right now anyway), as Marchand's 58 points (fourth-most in the NHL) were not enough to propel him into the mix.
