The Boston Bruins needed Tuukka Rask to keep the Montreal Canadiens off the board in the third period in order to maintain the 3-3 tie.
And he did just that.
The Bruins netminder made several key saves during the third period to send the game to overtime, and eventually, a shootout.
Boston won the shootout on Brad Marchand’s deciding tally, but they might not have grabbed the 4-3 win if not for Rask’s stellar third period.
