Rask has never played behind a top 10 offense as a starter. Never. Think that has a little something to do with "collapses" i.e. your team in front of you isn't building on leads.
People ascribe the 34-0-0 thing to Timmy, but what they miss out on is when Timmy was the starter, the Bruins forwards were deep. They could roll 4 lines and pressure, pressure, pressure. Now they're hfboards patience level thin, and they're sitting back constantly trying to protect the leads that Rask has gotten them. The difference isn't the goalie and whether he can fly out of nowhere and save the team from certain doom, it's what is going on in front of them.
