There have been some rumblings around Causeway Street that Tuukka Rask may not be ready to relieve Tim Thomas of his duties as the number one goalie in Boston. Letís get real people, it is officially Tuukka Time.
For the past three seasons, Rask was splitting time with Thomas and at times outplaying the veteran. Last season, before Rask went down with an injury he played in 23 games holding an 11-8 record with three shutouts. His save percentage was a cool .929% and he let in just above two goals a game (2.05).
This young kid has a bright future ahead of him. In his 102 career games with the Bruins, Rask has a 47-35 career record with 11 shutouts. His save percentage is .926% and his GAA stands at 2.20. The 25-year-old stud is ready to show the National Hockey League what he really is made of.
