    Posted by dezaruchi[/QUOTE]

    Speaking of Pittsburgh, Crosby and Malkin, here is an interesting fact:

    2009 Stanley Cup Finals vs. Detroit - Malkin and Crosby scored 3 goals and 6 assists in 7 games, combined - yes, I said combined - not each. (In games 6 & 7 they were held pointless, and won both games).

    It begs the question: "How in the hell did they win the Cup?"

    I must say, Crosby and Malkin lead the Penguins to the dance; and the Penguins did dance because Sid and Geno weren't doing much dancing. But, most of the time that is what happens: The big guys get you there, but you're not going to win if the little guys don't show up.

    Sidney Crosby was held to 1 goal and 1 assist - and they still won.

    I don't think Bruins could ever have won a series with Orr getting only two points.

    Re: Rask

    and heres another case of fans rooting for the kid .  he will win a game when he maes the bruins win a game.  subans goal was weak weak weak, that puck cannot go in .  thats a save he has to make to set the tone and he didnt .
    till he makes the bruins win a game like TT did the night b4 he does not deserve a start.  next time he plays he has to prove to everyone that he can help the bruins win, not saying he must be perfect and not let any pucks in but he must make saves to win the game and not lose the game for the bruins.

    ^This!

    PS. I'll say it again and again Tuukka needs more starts!

    Oh, for heaven's sake.

    Rask's save percentage this season is .923. If he'd ended last year with a .923 save percentage, he would have been sixth in the NHL, just behind Jaroslav Halak (.924).

    He hasn't "crumbled," not by a long shot. As a matter of fact, he's allowed fewer goals in his last two games than Thomas has (four vs. seven).

    It's a long, long season. Goalies sometimes get lucky (Halak and his four posts) and sometimes unlucky (Rask and his bad bounces). But over the course of a season (like last year), talent reveals itself. 

    Actually, somebody who knows said it pretty well:

    Following the shoot-around, Thomas took some time to discuss Rask’s tough start. After all, Thomas went through similar stretches last season when he went 17-18-8 with a 2.56 GAA and .918 save percentage.

    “Yeah, I was in a very similar situation [as Rask] last year,” Thomas told ESPNBoston.com. “Getting some good plays made against you mixed in with some funny bounces, and it just so happens that when you play that, they’re not getting the type of offense they’re getting when they’re playing for the other guy. I’ve been through it. There was one period last year when I played really well for like six games and had really good stats but didn’t get the wins. That’s what Tuukka’s in the middle of right now.”

    Looking back on last season, prior to injuring his hip and then subsequently losing the starting job to Rask, Thomas remembers not actually worrying or losing confidence. He believes Rask is fine in that respect.

    “I remember, though, it wasn’t really bothering me that much because I was playing good at the time,” Thomas said. “Tuukka is playing well, too, and hopefully it’s not bothering him that much. He seems fine and [seems like] himself, so I think he’s doing OK. He’s handling it correctly, and I’m not surprised because he’s just that type of guy. He doesn’t get rattled easily.”

    Re: Rask

    Play like dog dung? Overreact much?

    When you look at how the team has played in front of Rask compared to TT? For the most part it's been dog dung! Not an over-reaction at all! You want to say that you thought the B's played a great game against the Habs? Guess this winning record won't be around much longer. This team has the ability to be the best all-around team in the league. They haven't played like it enough! It just seems they play even less when Rask has been in the net. Not to take anything away from Timmy. Anyone who knows me, know that's not what I'm saying at all. I'm being fair to both.

    But the Bruins never have to win a game for him though? I get it!

    Junior- this is a great post.  You hit the nail right on the head. The B's are stacked at the goalie position.  One guy is hot and they ride him-last year and this year.  With 2 guys that good on your team, you can afford to have one in a slump and go with the other guy...

    Re: Rask

    Great article Duinne, TT is a perfect source for this situation, he's been through it and he's seen every minute of Tuukka's play and practice. It confirms what we have been saying about Rask not being in a sophmore slump against all the "Tuukka haters" with some skewed agenda. If you just watch the guys play you see he has not slipped from last years play, he is very consistant. If you look at the scoresheet and hate Rask for whatever reason, you put up a dumbazz post.
