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'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
