Bruins Will Have to Lean on Goaltending in Playoffs As ‘Tuukka Time’ Begins in Earnest (Video)

It’s Tuukka Time.

After 48 games, the playoffs are here, and the Bruins are only going to go as far as Tuukka Rask can take them. That’s how playoffs work, right?

Boston had a chance to see the impact a hot goalie can have up close in 2011 when Tim Thomas dominated en route to a Stanley Cup, and fans watched again in 2012 when Washington netminder Braden Holtby led the charge during a first-round upset win over the Bruins. This year, how far will Rask lead the B’s?

NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is excited to find out.
