Rask will sport a mask courtesy of airbrush artist Sylvie Marsolais that features New England Patriots Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, and Julian Edelman, as well as a depiction of the old Boston Garden.

Mike Condon, the starter for the Montreal Canadiens, also had a nod to the Patriots on his newly designed outdoor mask.
The 28-year-old goaltender will be making his first Winter Classic start, although he served as Tim Thomas’s backup when the Bruins faced the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2010 outdoor game.
