Whenever Tuukka Rask has stepped onto the ice at Boston's TD Garden of late, it's as if he puts on a black-and-gold cape and turns into a Finnish version of Superman.

Rask has gone more than 166 minutes without allowing a goal on home ice, a remarkable run that he will attempt to extend Wednesday night during Game 4 of the 2013 Stanley Cup final against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Almost two weeks ago, Rask blanked Sidney Crosby and co. in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final at the "Gah-den" to eliminate the Pens. In his next appearance on home ice, he shut out the Hawks 2-0 on Monday night to put the Bruins up 2-1 in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup final.

Can Rask do it again in Game 4 in an attempt to give the Bruins a stranglehold in the final as they seek their second Stanley Cup in three years?To discuss that topic along with all things Bruins-Blackhawks, join Sun hockey columnist Mike Zeisberger for a live chat at 7:45 p.m. EST.
