Pounding The Glass    

Three cheers for Bruins rookie Tuukka Rask, who got his first NHL win in net tonight in Toronto, against the team that drafted him. He played extremely well, making several key saves and only being beaten on freak bounces.

Rask was bailed out by three very nifty plays by the B's to regain control of the game. Marc Savard's feed to P.J. Axelsson on the game-tying marker was particularly sweet. Rask owes Savard and Chuck Kobasew their dinners tonight.

Also notable is that the Leafs didn't have the sprouts to start the goalie Rask was traded for, the struggling Andrew Raycroft, in their own net. I remember blasting the trade at the time, but only inasmuch as Rask was too far off to help the main club. But if Rask is close enough to spot-start behind Tim Thomas and the disappointing/injured Manny Fernandez, that only bodes well for the Bruins becoming a real team sometime in the next 12-18 months! Yay!
