For the love of god no,Bruins fans tend to always use Rask as a scapegoat when Rask has done nothing but carry the team the entire year and started the season with a .920 save percentage, but not all good things can last so it has fallen to a not-so great .911. While many would look at stats and immediately judge the play of Tuukka many people tend to ignore that he has the second best save percentage of all time.
People like to compare Tuukka to Tim Thomas, the goalie who won the Bruins a cup, but don’t forget that Rasks name is on that cup as well. The problem for the Bruins is not Rask but the defense that plays in front of Tuukka. When people compare Tuukka to Timmy they forget that Tim Thomas played behind one of the best defense cores the Bruins have ever had while Rask plays behind one of the worst.
Boston has always used the goalie or coach as a scapegoat and Rask is no different, Rask has shown time and time again but Boston fans feel that Tuukka always has to prove something to them.
