As the Boston Bruins gear up for Game 1 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final, one player’s stats appear to mirror those of a previous champion.
Tuukka Rask is 12-5 throughout the 2019 postseason, with a 1.84 goals-against average and a .942 save percentage. The last time the Bruins won a Stanley Cup, Tim Thomas put up very similar numbers.
Thomas went 12-6 leading up to the 2011 Stanley Cup Final, earning himself a 2.29 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage along the way.
