Back in 2010, before the Bruins won the Stanley Cup, the team suffered a crushing blow against the Philadelphia Flyers in the playoffs. Leading three games to none, Boston ultimately lost in seven games, with Philly overcoming a three-goal deficit in Game 7 to really twist the knife in.
Tuukka Rask was the goalie for the B’s back then, but he hasn’t gotten a chance to face the Flyers again since that fateful series. That will change on Saturday in Boston, but it shouldn’t matter much. After all, Rask does have a Stanley Cup ring to his name — and he has played well enough this season to give the Bruins a chance at winning another.
