Tuukka Rask has been strong in goal for the Bruins all playoffs, but that isn’t stopping Blackhawks fans from doing their best to get inside the Finnish goaltender’s head.

The Boston Bruins and goalie Tuukka Rask were less than 80 seconds away from a seventh game of the Stanley Cup Final.
Then it all fell apart.

HOLDING OUT HOPE
Patrice Bergeron was reportedly released from the hospital on Friday night and flew home with the team. His status remains unknown.
Before Monday’s game I had written an article previewing Game 4. It listed the keys to success for each team (http://isportsweb.com/2013/06/19/blackhawks-vs-bruins-game-4-preview/). Let’s check out how each team did on their respective checklists, and what they can improve on for the remainder of the series.
Increase the tempo of the game. Chicago did...
Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron suffered some sort of mysterious injury that sidelined him for the second period of Game 5 and forced him to leave the United Center sitting in the back of an ambulance, and Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos reported that Bergeron may have suffered a spleen injury.
Pro Hockey Talk's Joe Yerdon was monitoring early-morning Tweets, and he found...
Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron was taken to an area hospital for observation during Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final at United Center on Saturday, the organization confirmed.
The team didn't provide any further details and Bruins coach Claude Julien was similarly short on info minutes after the Blackhawks earned a 3-1 victory to take a 3-2 series lead.

Bruins fans it’s time to go to the well once again.
Just like 2011, the Bruins have their back against the walls (insert countless cliches) once again in the Stanley Cup Final. But what we learned in 2011 and thus far this post-season, the members of the “Spoked B” are a resilient bunch.
The “WE CAN” Campaign The Sequel is upon us.
Their unwavering resiliency was never...
It appears that Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk won’t face a suspension from the NHL as a result of the devastating hit he laid on Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews during Saturday’s Game 5 in Chicago.
According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the league has reviewed Boychuk’s hit and decided that it did not warrant a disciplinary ruling. Boychuk himself stated after the game that...
I'm sure that Ray Charles will be tuned in to Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals tonight, cheering on his beloved Bruins. I'm not sure that he'll be able to see any of it, though. No, not because he's dead. Because he's blind.
Obviously, I am not speaking of the Ray Charles that you are thinking of. I am speaking of Ray Charles, the blind golden retriever. Featured...
11 a.m. ET: Four games have been played in the Stanley Cup Final, and we don’t know much of anything, other than these two teams are very good and they’re evenly matched.
The Bruins and Blackhawks have played four games so far, and each team has two wins. Each team has one a game at home and a game on the road. Each team is just two wins away from the Cup, as Saturday night marks...
This gripping Stanley Cup final has gone five games — with Game 6 set for Monday night in Boston — and there remains great uncertainty about what lies ahead. A good part of what’s not known has to do with each team’s top two-way center, Patrice Bergeron of Boston and Jonathan Toews of Chicago. Each is a leader on and off the ice, a major presence in everything his team does...
Tonight could be the end of the 2013 Boston Bruins. Tonight could be the last time we ever see this particular cast of players assembled, donning the 8-spoked black and gold B that has transcended generations of hockey fans. Tonight, Phil Pritchard and the Lord Stanley's Cup will be in the TD Garden and could possibly be handed out to the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Bruins did it again with good pitching, stellar defense and timely hitting, beating #1-ranked North Carolina, 4-1, Friday to advance to the College World Series Finals...
Chicago's Jonathan Toews went five-hole on Boston goalie Tuukka Rask for the equalizing goal during the second period of Game 6 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals.
If Jonathan Toews and Patrice Bergeron can't play in Game 6, both
the Hawks and Bruins are going to have some big skates to fill.
