Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask is off to the best start of his young career, sporting a 5-1-1 record, 2.10 goals-against and a .919 save percentage through six games played. Despite those impressive numbers, Rask has had an up-and-down season against the Northeast Division. He's had solid wins against the Rangers and Maple leafs, a gut-check overtime loss versus those same blue shirts, and an abysmal six-goals-against performance at the hands of the Sabres.
Tomorrow night, the Bruins face off in Montreal for their first game against the hated Habs during this shortened NHL season. The Canadiens sit at an impressive 6-2-0 record thus far, and are arguably the toughest opponent the B's will have up to this date.
Statistically in his career, Rask has struggled more against Montreal than any other opponent in the league. Here's a basic game-by-game breakdown:
