    Rask is not under pressure

    I dont know why, after reading so many things said about rask about under pressure and he blew the game, so absurd when you think about it.

    The goal where he stumbled, slipped or whatever happens , maybe not as much as we normally see, but it does, not his fault.

    The wrap around was not his fault,  add forchecking the hell out of chara to that one.

    This kid has been amazong , he will likely blame himself for those 2 goals and everytime this kid has a game that appears to look bad he comes back with a shutout.

    Mark my words

    Agreed.  he's up 3-1 against a team that everybody feared.  He picked the perfect time for a sloppy game, and they do happen (remember Thomas vs. Tampa?).  If he blows three more, we'll talk.  He won't.

    Don't forget Chara was sloppy...Don't forget that Campbell left his man in the slot...Don't forget Hamilton didn't stay with his guy...Don't forget it's a team win and a team lose....

    I honestly don't really remember that Fletch but my memory says Thomas was the main reason the Bruins found themselves down 0-2 to the Habs in 2011. His late game miscues in games 1 and 2 against Van also weren't the epitome of perfection.

    If he comes completely unglued and turns in to Red Light Rask because of one goal, he's no NHL goaltender anyway.

    Just last week people here were saying that he had ice water in his veins.  Now people are wonding if he's going to go all SoxinIL on himself because of a gaffe.

    Get real.

    Thomas gave up 5 goals in four of the seven games against Tampa.  He also had two shutouts and an extremly clutch performance in the critical game 7.

    We all know Thomas was fantastic in those playoffs.  It's just funny that after Rask loses a close game to the Rangers allowing them to scratch out one victory in the series, people are saying he can't be trusted.  Off games happen, even to the best goalies.  No big deal.

    i couldn't be less concerned with Rask moving forward. His worst game of the playoffs and he gives up 4 goals. Not a big deal to me.

    In non-closeout situations in the playoffs, Rask is 12-2 with a 1.98 goals-against average and .936 save percentage.

    In closeout situation in the playoffs, where a win sends the Bruins to the next round, Rask is 2-8 with a 3.20 GAA and .890 save percentage. Come back Timmy



    Quit posting the same thing in multiple threads. Thomas isn't a man of his word and he's gone. Get over it.

    My my one forgets the reality in the bright lights of NY and media in general.  TT was horrible in game 4, oh how I remember those goals.  Thank goodness for game 7.

    4 of those were also against the Flyers in 2010. Any goalie who was on a team that had a chance to close out a series has those 4 games against them if they lose them . It's the dumbest stat I ever heard of.

    Looking back at the Cup run, we all agree that Thomas was great.  He won the Conn Smythe.  But if you were to go back and read threads from back then, you would see plenty of them doubting TT's ability to win in the playoffs.  There were plenty of threads saying he "looked" tired giving up fivehole goals and that Rask should be brought in.
