Bruins’ goalie Rask pulled as Habs open flood gates

The often-heated rivalry between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens has, so far tonight, gone largely in favor of the Habs. And that has meant the hook for Bruins’ goalie Tuukka Rask.

Rask was pulled after allowing three goals on 18 shots, just past the midway point of the second period. Chad Johnson came into the game, but didn’t get a warm welcome from the Canadiens.

Daniel Briere scored Montreal’s fourth goal of the evening, on just the second shot Johnson faced since entering the game, according to the play-by-play report on

The Canadiens come into this game in a struggle of their own, having lost four of their previous five games. In those four defeats, they were outscored 19-5.

This latest outing only continues Rask’s ongoing struggles against the Canadiens.

    And it didn’t help that the Bruins filled their skates with cement before the game started.

    4-1 is hardly the floodgates. But Rask looked very soft on the last power play goal he gave up.

    Too bad they don’t look like they’ll end up as a 1st round matchup in the playoffs. Could expect some sparks otherwise.
