Tuukka Rask, Tim Thomas Pushing Each Other Toward Goalie Dominance With ‘Top Gun’-Style Competition


Tuukka Rask and Tim Thomas are on top of their respective games right now. Rask leads the league in goals against average and save percentage, but Thomas is right on his tail in both categories, making the Bruins goalies the top 1-2 goalie punch in the world right now.

The way that Rask and Thomas have been able to push each other to play their best is impressive, considering how friendly the two have remained despite the competition.

NESN Nation's Dan Duquette's frame of reference for competition is usually pop culture-related, so he's surprised the two haven't become enemies in the vein of Maverick and Iceman from Top Gun. Luckily, this friendly competition has been working out just fine for the B's.

Check out the above video to see Dan break it down.
