As great as Tuukka Rask has been, Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville seemingly believes that the Boston Bruins aren’t seeing their best game.
“Tonight, I thought we made it rather easy on him,” Quenneville said of Rask.
Quenneville said he thought that the Blackhawks played into the Bruins’ hands after Game 2. Being shut out in Game 3 might just make him feel like it could be Boston’s kind of series.
“It’s a low-chance game. It’s a low-chance series,” Quenneville said. ” … It’s hard to get A-plus chances. You have to manufacture the second, kind of ugly goals, tip screens, deflections.”
“If they give up the rush, they’re not going to give up much, even though we had a couple looks in the third. The frequency of having high-quality chances in this series at both ends has not been there.”
Even so, the 26-year-old stopped 61 out of the last 62 shots he’s seen, including tonight’s 28-save shutout.
Following the game, Rask didn’t exactly make it easy on the censors:
