Tuukka Rask, Bruins Featured on Sports Illustrated Cover That Calls NHL Postseason ‘The Best’ (Photo)

In this case, we’d have to agree with Sports Illustrated unequivocally.

The magazine has slapped the Bruins across its cover for this week, and the SI crew went with one of the true studs of the playoffs so far, Tuukka Rask, to make their point. With the headline “The Best,” Sports Illustrated says the NHL postseason “is like no other.”

The Bruins have been the most impressive team in the Stanley Cup runoff, at least this week. Dismantling the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-0 then 6-1 after Rask carried them through the first two rounds against the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers, they’re in the driver’s seat in the Eastern Conference finals.

Check out the photo, complete with one of Rask’s great saves, below.
