Don Cherry: ‘Rask is going to be the difference’

The flamboyant and always entertaining Don Cherry arrived in Boston Sunday for Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup Final and said Tuukka Rask would be the difference maker in the tight battle between the Bruins and the Blackhawks.

The former Bruins coach and current CBC broadcaster and “Hockey Night in Canada” analyst said the Blackhawks won’t go down easily, but the Bruins will ultimately prevail.

“I cannot believe a team that was the best in the whole league ends up going [down] in four or five [games],” Cherry said. “But for the Bruins, Rask is going to be the difference.”
