Rask into Bruins' record book with 2-assist night

Tuukka Rask has never had a better night, that is at least offensively.

In addition to making 34 saves against 35 shots in a win over the Winnipeg Jets, the Boston Bruins netminder became the first in franchise history to pick up two assists in a regular-season game.

"Pretty sweet," Rask said when asked about the stat quirk, according to Finnish reporter Sami Hoffren.

His helpers came on goals from David Pastrnak, who upped his total to four, and Zdeno Chara, who flipped his first into an empty net.

Rask is making advances in other, much more conventional categories in the club's record book. With a strong season, he could surpass Tim Thomas for fourth all time in wins, and perhaps move into second in shutouts behind Tiny Thompson.
