1. Tuukka is still Tuukka
I really can’t believe my eyes. I don’t think anyone could have expected Tuukka Rask to have such an amazing performance in the postseason.
Rask was making some incredible saves. He stopped 29 of the 31 shots he faced on Thursday night.

None of the goals that were scored on Rask were his fault. One came off a deflection and the other could have been goaltender interference.
Once again Rask kept the Bruins in the game. He made some incredible saves that brought the TD Garden to their feet.
The Bruins need Rask to continue playing at this high level. If the refs are going to be soft (more on that later) the Bruins will have to kill a lot of penalties.
Once again Tuukka Rask was an amazing goalie. Who could ever imagine people ever criticizing this guy? The puck must look like a beach ball to him right now. Tuukka Rask is playing some of the best hockey of his career.
