It could have been a non-issue before Saturday’s game, but it certainly was afterward: 2010 is long gone, and the Bruins-Flyers have both moved on from that playoff series. In fact, the Flyers didn’t even look like a playoff team this time around.
The Bruins did, however, thanks in large part to Tuukka Rask‘s stellar play in goal. He made 23 saves in posting his second shutout of the season, inching the Bruins back into first place and reiterating that he has come a long way from suffering four straight losses to those Flyers.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is giving the Bruins goalie our “Payback Points” player of the game. Who’s yours?
