Rask, Bruins look to rebound from 4-3 triple OT loss to Blackhawks in Game 1

CHICAGO - Key mistakes by his teammates late in regulation and one wild deflection at the end were simply too much for Tuukka Rask to overcome.

Now, the Boston Bruins trail the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup finals. Don't blame the goalie for that.

Rask did his part, but the Bruins fell 4-3 in triple overtime in a riveting Game 1 that ended with the puck deflecting off Chicago's Andrew Shaw and into the net for the winner.

It was a fitting conclusion to a game that saw the Bruins blow a two-goal lead late in regulation through no fault of Rask's.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
