BOSTON - Any questions about Tuukka Rask before these playoffs began have now been answered.

Only two wins away from a trip to the Stanley Cup final, the Boston Bruins' top goalie has a whopping .982 save-percentage in the first two games of this Eastern Conference final against the Pittsburgh Penguin, which shifts to the TD Garden for Games 3 and 4.

If anybody wants to point why Boston has a 2-0 lead, it's goaltending. The Bruins have had it, with Rask stopping all but one of the 69 shots he's faced, while the Penguins have been left wanting and are forced to choose between Tomas Vokoun or Marc-Andre Fleury for Game 3.
