“Yeah, pretty easy night for me,’’ said Rask. “It can be a little tough when you’re not facing many shots, but overall, not a lot of work. The guys did a great job.’’
Including Hamilton, who late in the action positioned himself perfectly to thwart a shot at the open right post as the Rangers buzzed two forwards around Rask. Hamilton logged 13:40 in his debut, landed three shots, and overall played a calm, smart game.
“In some ways, this was easier than junior,’’ said the redheaded rook. “The pace didn’t bother me, because I’d practiced with some of the best players in the world here for a week. And everyone’s so smart, always where they’re supposed to be, so the game just makes more sense.’’
Sounds logical. In a season nearly lost because logic appeared to have left the room, it all added up for the Bruins.
