Tuukka Rask Denies Islanders’ Valtteri Filppula To Preserve Bruins’ Lead

For a second straight game, Tuukka Rask was sensational between the pipes.

Rask responded to his shutout Sunday against the Washington Capitals with a 28-save performance in the Boston Bruins’ 3-1 win over the New York Islanders on Tuesday at TD Garden.

The veteran netminder had a number of fine saves on the night, but his denial of Valtteri Filppula’s backhand attempt with Boston clinging to a one-goal lead just might have been his best.
