The Bruins were outshot 44 to 22 in this game and at times looked very flat. Tuukka Rask absolutely, unequivocally saved their asses. The Rangers even had a penalty shot and couldnt score on Rask.
On the other end, Henrik Lundqvist stopped 20 of 22 shots. Seriously, is there a more overrated goalie in the NHL right now? Lundqvist is now 6-9 on the season with a 2.38 GAA.
You read that correctly. The dude has nine friggin losses this season so far. I cant believe people were referring to him as "the best goalie on the planet" last season during the playoffs. It made me cringe then and it will make me puke if I ever hear it again.
Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille scored for the Bruins. Shawn Thornton's now has two goals in his last three games and each of them has come against Venzina Trophy winners. Like Ive always said, Shawn Thornton is a natural sniper.
The Bruins are now in first place in the Atlantic Division and have the most points in the Eastern Conference. Fuck yea.
