Tuukka has been outstanding all season. And he's been an absolute beast in the playoffs.

Bring on game 5.

Funny how you rarely see a post, let alone a thread, pining for the return of Thomas or mourning his loss. Interesting, but having a world class goalie will do that for you.

Rask was awesome lastnight. Thanks again to Toronto for not only Seguin and Hamilton but Rask too! He kept us in the game last night and I am hoping for a dominate game on Friday. Let's go Bruin's!!!

I agree with the boys on NBC last night- Rask was snubbed for the Vezina. Other than Henrik the other choices were laughable. Rask was the best this season and is Cup ready.

Actually, I disagree. Other than BOB, the choices were laughable. He turned Colombus around. They almost made the playoffs. He was stellar. He deserves to win, IMO

But not having Rask even be nominated is a joke.

I agree with you about Bobrovski. I think he is my first choice for the award. Without him, I don't think CLB sniffs the playoffs. But I thik Henrik getting more votes than Tuukka is completely based on reputation, and not on performance in this season. Tuukka was pretty clearly better than Lundqvist this season. I can't really offer much opinion on Niemi, but he has looked pretty darned good in the playoffs.

On a more short-term note, Tuukaa was freaking phenomenal last night!

I thought Tuuka allowed 1-2 semi-soft goals last night, but he played AWESOME when it counted. Some of those saves in OT were pretty insane. So glad Krejci scored when he did to save some of the remaining heartbeats my life has haha.

Honestly I thought Rask let in some pretty bad goals last night.

He did however, come up huge in OT, and throughout the night made some flashy kick saves. So I'll take it.

The only one I wasn't happy with was the tying goal. I don't know how he let it sneak under his right pad. But it WAS a slapper from about 12 feet, so I'm not gonna jump on him too much for it.

I thought the 1st goal was saveable and the 2nd goal was iffy, but like you I'm not about to jump all over him about it.

I spent all night up with a screaming child, so I don't remember specifics, or anything remotely detailed about the game. I just remember thinking that he would have liked to have all 3 goals back, but that Jack Edwards must have a bone dry well right now cuz he was awfully excited about some of the saves Rask made.

Rask has been playing at a completely different level the past few games if he continues to flourish in opponents buildings and stay consistent we will be in great shape.

The snub may be motivating him to another level, so I don't mind it

From today's Globe:

The two most significant statistics to measure a goaltender’s worth are save percentage and goals-against average. Since Rask entered the NHL in 2007-08, not a single goalie with at least 100 games played ranks higher than the thin Fin in either category. No matter what the Eye Test says, he’s been the best in the entire league.

Rask’s career save percentage is .927, while he has a 2.15 GAA. He has a record of 66-45-16 with 16 shutouts in 138 games.

For point of reference, the 30-year-old Rinne – he of huge wallet fame – became a full-timer in 2008-09 and he’s appeared in 293 career games with a 153-88-34 record and 30 whitewashes. However, his save percentage is .920 and he sports a 2.36 GAA.

Advantage, Rask. Twice.

Look at any other goalie in the league at a comparable age and service time who’s already cashed in and you’ll find Rask’s numbers are superior.

Price? The 25-year-old just finished the first of a 6-year, $39 million deal. His numbers? A .915 save percentage and 2.56 GAA.

Kari Lehtonen of the Stars? He’s 29 and his 5-year, $29.5 million contract begins next season with a respectable but inferior .914 save percentage and 2.71 GAA.

Reigning Stanley Cup champ and 27-year old Jonathan Quick? The Kings stud and UMass Amherst alumnus inked a 10-year deal worth $58 million. His digits? A .915 save percentage and 2.32 GAA.

How about 29-year-old Jimmy Howard of the Red Wings? That’s another deal that begins next season, good for six years and $31.75 million. He’s got a career .918 save percentage and 2.36 GAA.

Other players who received big deals a few years ago at age 26 include Lunqvist and Ward, but the man in black and gold makes their numbers look black and blue.

I guess the other guys facing like 300 more shots was the deciding factor.

Makes sense, more shots = bigger sample size and more room for stats to drop.

Not a knock on Rask but god damn, the 3 nominees faced like an upwards of 1000 or more shots

How many years will he sign on his new contract? I say 2 or 3 years.

The guy had such a boss game yesterday too. Only one that got past him was both screened and deflected.

Did we get any theories on what Bruin was playing a prank on him when this happened?

It was an audio guy who knocked over his iPod and every time the guy moved the volume got louder and louder. Toucher and Rich just did a quick segment on it. Still awesome tho!

2013 Playoffs after 10 games:

Rask 7-3 , 2.19 GAA .930 SV%

2011 Playoffs after 10 games

Thomas 7-3 , 2.13 GAA .935 SV%

Bruins should have done more to extend Rask before the playoffs
