Aggressive Rangers Offense Putting Plenty of Pressure on Bruins, Tuukka Rask Through First Period (Video)

The Rangers started Tuesday night’s game against the rival Bruins with a lot of energy, and it resulted in New York spending a lot of time in the attacking zone.

Boston’s carelessness with the puck, combined with the Rangers defensemen pinching at every opportunity, forced Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask to make 16 saves in the first period. The 26-year-old has been stellar in net for Boston, and the highlight of the first period was his penalty shot save on Rangers winger Chris Kreider to keep the Bruins’ penalty kill streak alive.
