The Bruins aren’t trading Rask because they’re not ready for life without him.

The Bruins aren’t trading Rask because they’re not ready for life without him.

A vocal contingent of fans want to move on from Tuukka Rask. The Boston Bruins...can’t. As another postseason comes to an end, radio callers and fans pining for the days of literally once in a lifetime goaltending begin their war chant. Usually misspelled. “Trade Tuukka!” There’s logic to it. It’s only natural that the emotional, angry response of being ripped from the postseason early, and when that happens usually you expect or want changes to come so that it doesn’t happen again, and of course, the very last person in front of the net before the puck goes in is Tuukka Rask....

David Backes understands his game and the Bruins need some sharpening

Bruce Cassidy confirmed that, yes, Tuukka Rask will start in tonight’s pivotal Game 4 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.But aside from that comically obvious concession, the Bruins coach wasn’t giving up anything else about his lineup after yesterday’s quick but pointed practice at Warrior Ice Arena.Two important players, Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk, did not practice, taking maintenance days, so there’s nothing yet to read into the fact that Ryan Donato skated on the second line in DeBrusk’s usual spot with David Krejci and Rick Nash, and Danton Heinen took Marchand’s spot on...

Boston Bruins and The Tuukka Rask Dilemma

Boston Bruins and The Tuukka Rask Dilemma

For the entirety of the NHL playoffs, Tuukka Rask has received the most consistent flow of criticism from the fans of the Boston Bruins. While he is responsible for some poor play, he has also fallen victim to the dismal play of the players in front of him. Whenever the season ends, if the Bruins are not the ones raising the Cup, Boston management will have to look at possible solutions for Tuukka Rask. The Tuukka Rask Dilemma Rask has what can be described as “Warning Track Power”. The term means that the player has amazing talent and can perform well, but comes up just short right at...

The Bruins had a characteristically slow start, allowing the Bolts to dominate the first period of play. If it wasn’t for strong goaltending from Tuukka Rask, this game could have gotten out of hand early. Despite being drastically outplayed, the Bruins...
