Tuukka Rask Makes Sprawling Save To Deny Stars’ Brett Ritchie (Video)

Tuukka Rask didn’t take long to make his impact felt Tuesday night.

The Boston Bruins goaltender began the game on the bench against the Dallas Stars but was inserted into the lineup after Niklas Svedberg was pulled after the first period.

Boston was trying to keep pace with Dallas’ high-powered offense in the third period when Stars forward Brett Ritchie had a great chance to notch a goal. Yet Rask had other plans, diving across the crease and getting just enough of the puck to make it ring off the right post and out of danger.

Check out Rask’s athletic save in the video above.
