Much like his counterpart Corey Crawford, Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask doesn’t seem rattled about allowing more goals than usual in Game 4. The Finnish netminder provided an even-keeled outlook to CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty.
“[We’re] really confident. I think that’s one of our good qualities as a team,” Rask said. “We never let things bother us.”
“[There’s] nothing special. [You] just move on. Take the good things, focus on the positive things and negative things, and see what you got to improve. That’s about it.”
Haggerty points out that the 26-year-old is 4-0 with a 1.33 GAA and .959 save percentage after allowing four goals or more in the 2013 postseason.
Combine that tidbit with his overall playoff numbers (14-9, 1.83 save percentage and .941 save percentage) and it makes sense that the goalie and his team aren’t bent out of shape going into Game 5 on Saturday.
