There’s no denying goalie Tuukka Rask has struggled in the last few games, due largely to the void left by Dennis Seidenberg on the Bruins’ blueline. But his work prior to that far outweighs his current struggles.
Rask is in the top five or 10 in every goaltending stat category and is one of the favorites to take home the Vezina Trophy. Despite his injury history, he is handling his heavy workload nicely so far, but that will be put to the test after he represents Team Finland in the Winter Olympics.
Tuukka has responded to his detractors the last two years. And he has helped the Bruins, once again, become a prime contender for Lord’s Stanley Cup.
