The Rask vs Thomas Comparison
It was bound to happen. The Tuukka Rask and Tim Thomas Stanley Cup Playoffs comparison. Thomas led the B’s to the Cup in 2011. Rask is doing the same in 2013.
B’s coach Claude Julien said after game two in Chicago that Rask “has been just as good as Thomas” and admitted there was fear in not being able to replace Thomas.
Here are the stats….
Tuukka Rask 13-5 1.73 GAA .944%
Tim Thomas 16-9 1.98 GAA .940% Conn Smythe Trophy(playoff MVP)
* Three more wins for the Bruins gives Rask 16 wins, a likely Conn Smythe and gives the team another Stanley Cup.
