Jack Edwards always has plenty to say. Whether commenting about the Bruins or the NHL as a whole, he is definitely not afraid to share his opinion on hot button issues.

Tuukka Rask Stops 41 Shots Against Kings En Route to Ninth Career Shutout

Tuukka Rask was fantastic on Tuesday night against Los Angeles. He stopped all 41 shots he faced as part of his first shutout of the season and the ninth of his career. It also marked the first time in Rask's career that he played against the Kings. Judging by the effort, they may not want to face the Finnish netminder again any time soon. The Bruins, of course, picked up a 3-0 victory.

It's about time for Rask

Coming into this season, we all knew the plan with Tuukka Rask: He was going to get more playing time. Duh. What...

Tuukka Rask May Encourage Tim Thomas to 'Watch the Throne' After Shutout Performance Against Kings

Is there a little bit of a goalie controversy brewing for the Bruins? After Tuukka Rask's performance against the Los Angeles Kings, it's not a bad problem to have. Tim Thomas reigns over the league as the best goalie, but Rask's strong play of late is something that Bruins fans shouldn't ignore. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is awarding Rask our "Watch the...

Tim Thomas, Tuukka Rask Differ in Goaltending Styles, But Bruins' System Helps Make Them Interchangeable

Claude Julien has two incredibly capable goaltenders at his disposal in Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask. And while it may be difficult at times to juggle their playing time, the decision must be made easier by the simple fact that the B's are in a great position to win regardless of who's between the pipes. A lot of that, though, stems from the Bruins' defensive system that...

Rask, Marchand lead Bruins over Kings 3-0

Tuukka Rask did his best impression of Tim Thomas tonight in Boston, as the goalie had a season high 41 saves, many of them of the awkward variety, against the Los Angeles Kings in the first shut out of the season for Rask. Many expected the Kings to come out with their feet moving, playing re-energized hockey, after the club fired head coach Terry Murray last night. That wasnâ€...

Zdeno Chara's Absence Downplayed by Bruins After Giving Up High Volume of Shots Against Kings

Tuukka Rask had a much better view than usual on Tuesday. The Boston Bruins goaltender didn't have a certain 6-foot-9, 225-pound defenseman in front of him, and although goalies typically like a clear view, the absence of Zdeno Chara wasn't one Rask welcomed. The Los Angeles Kings were stuffed on all 41 of their shots against Rask, but it was the sheer volume of shots that...

Tuukka Rask Earns First Shutout of Season, Garners Praise From Bruins Coach Claude Julien

BOSTON -- Claude Julien gave out tepid praise, as he often does, after his team's 3-0 win on Tuesday. Considering the Boston Bruins were without captain Zdeno Chara, got two points each from Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron, received strong play from Providence call-up Zach Hamill and enjoyed shutdown goaltending by Tuukka Rask, most coaches would have found the decisive victory...

Bruins have been pulling out stops

Yesterday was a rest day for the Bruins. Nobody needed breathers more than Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask.

For recording four points instead of zero, they have Thomas and Rask to thank.
