Somewhere in the United Center in Chicago, there’s a kitchen sink missing. That’s because the Blackhawks threw everything — including the kitchen sink — at the Bruins in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night.
The Hawks came out like gangbusters, looking to build on any sort of momentum that may have built after their triple-overtime win in Game 1. To say the ice was tilted would be an understatement. Chicago gave the Bruins everything they had in the first 20 minutes, but they only took a 1-0 lead to the dressing room.
That’s because the Bruins had Tuukka Rask in net, and the Boston netminder did everything he could to make sure Patrick Sharp‘s goal 11:22 into the first would be all the Blackhawks would get. The Hawks put 19 shots on net in the first, and Rask stopped 18 of them.
“Well, we were definitely in survival mode there for a bit,” Rask said. “It looked like they had more guys out there than we did. They were bouncing on every single puck in front of the net, had...

During an interview with Pierre McGuire after his shutout effort during Game 3, Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask told him that the ice was “sh*tty” on National television. We’ll give him a pass because he just had a shutout in a Stanley Cup Final game. [@cjzero]
The Blackhawks wasted little time putting the pressure on the Bruins in Game 2, but the B’s are hanging around.
Boston is probably lucky to only be trailing by one goal after a frantic first period, in which Tuukka Rask made more saves than Corey Crawford might have to all game. NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is a little worried about the B’s, but he knows this could have gotten...

Brent Bailey 06/16/2013 The Year of the Unsung Hero When it comes to sports during the playoffs, there will always be a player(s) that will step up in big moments. Most teams have one or two players who are the superstars of the team, and always seem to be the hero. This year for the Bruins, there have been plenty of players that have stepped up in desperate...
Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask gave us a no-filter interview on live TV after posting a 2-0 shutout win over the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup Finals.
What a game. Again. The Bruins should've won Game 1 but blew it. They played like crap for the vast majority of Game 2 but Rask bailed them out. If the Bruins played all game like they did in OT there would not have been an OT. Rask literally stole a game. The Paille made us all explode.
We're too pumped to finish this intro. This series is killing us and we love it...

The days of flashy goals and all the glory are behind 41-year-old Jaromir Jagr — and he knows it. The veteran player hasn’t scored once in the playoffs but has assisted on seven goals in 18 games.
Despite not being the center of attention, Jagr has showcased his strong work ethic, putting in late-night skating sessions to work on his conditioning. Those extra hours seem to be...
from Rick Morrissey of the Chicago Sun-Times,
Neither team wants you to feel sorry for it. In fact, both teams would prefer not to discuss it. Getting an NHL player to talk about his physical state is like getting a rogue state to talk about labor camps. Part of the code is to not complain about aches and pains, especially this time of year, when the rallying cry is to play...

Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has been playing fantastically in the first period of Game 2. At the end of one period, he has already made 18 saves. Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp was able to get one past Rask though, after this mad scramble in front of the net.
Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane put the first two shots on net and the puck was eventually kicked out to...
