There’s no goalie better than Tuukka Rask right now

Tuukka Rask earned his second shutout of the season with a 26-save effort against the Blues.

Rask was a brick wall in front of the Boston goal all night long. He looked cool and confident in net, and he gave the Blues nothing at all.

There was one save in particular that stands out for Rask. Blues forward David Perron came down the right wing and fired a shot glove side. Rask calmly flashed the leather and made the save.

Rask barely had to move to make the stop. He was in perfect position before Perron could even shoot. Rask made the save look easy, but let’s face it: he makes goaltending look easy right now.

With the way he played against the Blues, it’s no surprise Rask was the game’s first star.

The win against St. Louis gives Rask five wins in his first six starts this year. His only loss was in the shootout to Tampa Bay. This means that Rask gave his team a chance to win every game he started this year.

At this point, there isn’t a goalie in the world who’s better than Rask. If he maintains this level of play, he’ll be the favorite to win the Vezina Trophy again.

Rask teams up with Jaroslav Halak to give the Bruins the best goalie tandem in the league. With those two in net, the Bruins look poised for another long season.
