Morning Free Association: Save by Rask!

Embed from Getty Images

There are a lot of things that you could focus on about last night’s game. One could be the inability for the Bruins to register a shot on goal until Brandon Carlo took a shot more than halfway through the first period.

At that point, the Sabres led in shots on goal 14-1.

You could focus on Brad Marchand, who scored the first two goals by the B’s, including one on the second Bruins shot on the night.

You could focus on the fact that it only took David Pastrnak 22 games to get 20 goals…and that’s with actual scoring droughts of a few games.

But, really, your focus should be on Tuukka Fucking Rask, The Flying Finnish King.

Tuukka has bad games. Everyone does. The team in front of him had mostly a bad night. But Tuukka didn’t. He was 36/ 38 total, including 30-31 at even strength and 6/7 on the penalty kill. In the first alone, he was 16/17, allowing a PPG for Buffalo. The rest of the night, he was solid, including this amazing save.

That is Tuukka. Fucking. Rask. Ladies and gentlemen.

I’ve been a Chara critic over the years, but this guy exemplifies leadership. I can’t begin to quantify what he does for our team. There have been few like him in the history of sports. I’m not sure Bergy would be the Bergy we know and love if Chara hadn’t come on board. The Habs have had some great leaders over the years (respect where due, eh?) , Edmonton (Messier), O6 Wings (Gordie!!)……. lofty company. And the big man deserves it…. still pushing himself to be better….. Ha! It even makes me want to be better… (as if!!!)

He certainly did!

What separates a great team from good teams is that a great team finds ways to win even when they have an off-night.

At times it looked like the Bs weren’t giving enough respect to the Sabres and Buffalo surprised them with some of their plays. Sure, Sabres are struggling but it’s a tight league – even the worst teams are pretty good hockey teams and you’ve play them as though they are.

Sabres have that Edmonton thing hoing on. Skinner is a good anchor, but they need some veterans…. a Recchi (like they grow on trees) would be great for them! It’s a young man’s game, but….
Last night i praised the Bruin’s strength and conditioning staff. Pound for pound, Bruins strongest around!!

The Bs didn’t throw away everything and start over during their rebuild. They kept the right pieces (sorry, Tyler, Dougie, et al) and built on them.
