Playoff Preview: Wings vs Bruins

We broke down the forwards earlier, now it's time to compare defense to defense and have a goalie fight... I mean check out Jimmy Howard and Tuukka Rask head-to-head. Defense Jeff also wrote a great post introdicing us to the Bruins defensemen. With Jonathan Ericsson unavaliable in this round, the Wing will be stuck with both Brian Lashoff and Jakub Kindle in the lineup. Niklas Kronwall - Brendan Smith Kyle Quincey - Danny DeKeyser Brian Lashoff - Jakub Kindl While the Bruins are able to have Torey Krug in their 3rd pairing. Zdeno Chara - Dougie Hamilton Johnny Boychuk - Matt...

No question about it: Bruins confident Tuukka Rask up to task

No question about it: Bruins confident Tuukka Rask up to task

WILMINGTON — There are not too many questions left for Tuukka Rask to answer.A year ago, the concern was whether the spindly Finn, who’d wilted physically in his first shot at the postseason in 2010, would be able to backstop the Bruins through the grueling two-month march to the Stanley Cup. But Rask showed no signs of wearing down and was by no means the reason why the B’s lost to the Chicago Blackhawks in the finals.

Rask's concern is Cup, not Vezina

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The Bruins’ Tuukka Rask is the odds-on favorite to win the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goaltender during the regular season. His numbers support that notion. Rask finished with a 36-15-6 record, 2.04 goals-against average and a .930 save percentage in 58 games. He also led the league with seven shutouts. But Rask would rather earn a much bigger prize than any individual award, especially since the Bruins fell short of winning the Stanley Cup last spring with a loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in the finals.

Know Thy Enemy: Bruins Goaltenders

Know Thy Enemy: Bruins Goaltenders

This is what the Red Wings are up against. Monday we gave you a look at the Bruins forwards, yesterday it was the defense, and today it's between the pipes for Boston. Tuukka Rask (starter) If you watch any Bruins games, every now and then you'll hear Jack Edwards spew the line "TWO U's, TWO K's, TWO POINTS." Why? Well, usually when Rask is in net for the Bruins, they win. Rask is a damn fine goalie and will probably give the Red Wings some nightmares before the series is over. He is as close to a complete goaltender as there is in the NHL. Rask was top five in all the major goaltender...

Red Wings determined to get to the net against Bruins, create havoc in front of Tuukka Rask

The Bruins, with their big forwards, will be crashing the net, and 6-foot-9 defenseman Zdeno Chara will try to screen Jimmy Howard on the power play.

Chiarelli talks up Chara, Bergy, Rask

BOSTON -- Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli praised the accomplishments of defenseman Zdeno Chara, forward Patrice Bergeron and goaltender Tuukka Rask, saying all three deserve to win the league’s regular-season awards. Chara (Norris Trophy), Bergeron (Selke and Hart) and Rask (Vezina) are all expected to be nominated for the respective awards. Bruins coach Claude Julien will likely be a finalist for the Jack Adams Award, too. Chara, who is considered the best shutdown defenseman in the NHL, finished this season with 17 goals and 23 assists for 40 points in 77 games.

Seven Bruins stayed home Sunday, making room for a passel of Providence Bruins to see ice time in the Bruins' final regular season game. The President's Trophy winning Bruins sealed the deal on Saturday against the Sabres, and then fell to the Devils on Sunday. Having "found another gear" in Sochi, Patrice Bergeron reached the 30 goal mark at home on Saturday against the Sabres. Annual awards winners were Brad Marchand (Eddie Shore award,) David Krejci (Elizabeth Dufresne Trophy,) and Tuukka Rask (John P. Bucyk Award.) [TheBostonGlobe] Bergeron's 30 goals mean more than most players'...

Bruins’ Finnish built on Tuukka Rask and reward

Great saves can be taken for granted when made so frequently.Tuukka Rask exhibits a penchant for making the difficult stop look easy. Perhaps that’s why he seems so nonchalant about his consistently high level of performance between the pipes for the Bruins.

Shootout? Just shoot me now... The Bruins lost in an overtime skillz competition to the Winnipeg Jets backup goalie and former Providence Bruin Michael Hutchinson. Shootout = Loss. The Bruins looked disinterested and Claude Julien is disappointed. [TheBostonGlobe] Key players were out, and others returned to the ice for the depleted Bruins. One former PBruin's proud parents were in the stands. [MetroWestDaily News] One bright spot was the diligent net-minding of Chad Johnson, who, along with Tuukka Rask, is contending for the Jennings Trophy. [NESN] Speaking of trophies, although the...
