Bruins' Rask extends point streak to 20 games with win over Maple Leafs
There are hot streaks, and then there's what Tuukka Rask is currently on.
The Boston Bruins have collected a point in 20 straight games when Rask is between the pipes, as the netminder owns an 18-0-2 record over that stretch. The streak is the fourth longest in Bruins franchise history, per NHL Public Relations.
Rask stopped 23 of 24 shots that came his way against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night. The netminder has dominated the team that drafted him throughout his career in Boston, earning a 16-6-2 record and a .926 save percentage in 27 games against Toronto.
Rask, of course, was dealt to the Bruins in exchange for Andrew Raycroft shortly after the Leafs made him their first-round pick in 2005.
Boston sits comfortably in second place in the Atlantic Division, five points ahead of the Leafs with four games in hand.
