If there was a perfect time for Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask to preserve a three-goal lead with a shutout, yesterday was it.
The last time Rask was in net, he gave up four goals in a row to the Washington Capitals as the Bruins blew a 3-0 lead on Tuesday. The last time he faced the Flyers, on May 19, 2010, he also gave up four goals in a row as Philadelphia came back from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Bruins in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.
