Bruins’ Tuukka Rask shuts down Penguins

Penguins superstar and NHL favorite son Sidney Crosby started chirping at Rask. The Finnish goalie flashed indifference, not anger. He merely shrugged at Crosby and skated away. Pittsburgh lost its cool. Rask continued putting the Penguins’ scoring touch in cold storage. It was the story of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.
