2. On Wednesday night it needs to be Tuukka time

This will be a huge game for Tuukka Rask. Rask had a much better effort in game 6 and made some key saves that show how great of a goaltender he is. The Bruins need a similar effort on Wednesday night.

Rask hasn’t had the best of luck in deciding games. In Rask’s career, he is 1-2 in game 7’s and has a terrible save percentage (.849). Rask has also allowed at least three goals in all of these games.

The Bruins can’t afford this Tuukka Rask showing up. If this game becomes a shootout I don’t think the Bruins will come out on top. Andersen has been playing great and will be hard to beat.

If Rask is able to only allow one or two goals he will put the Bruins in a good position to win. Hopefully, Rask will be able to prove all of his doubters wrong and lead the Bruins to the second round.
