Tuukka Rask, Bruins Defense Put Rangers in ‘Double Trouble’ While Grabbing 2-0 Series Lead (Video)


“Defense wins championships.”

We’ve heard that mantra so many times that it has almost lost its meaning. Still, the Bruins may have found a way to redefine the saying if their defensemen keep playing so well — on the offensive end of things.

Goals from Torey Krug and Johnny Boychuk paced the B’s to a 5-2 victory over the Rangers, grabbing a big 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals all the while. Tuukka Rask outplayed Henrik Lundqvist as well, making 35 saves. For that, Rask is our “Double Trouble” player of the game. Who’s yours?
