Tuukka Rask recorded his third career postseason shutout in Monday night’s Game 3. Rask stopped all 28 shots that Chicago sent his way.

The Blackhawks never made Rask work for his blanking. The Bruins prevented the Blackhawks from generating any kind of offensive rhythm. When the night was over, Rask had a virtually dry uniform to accompany his shutout.

“Tonight was great,” Rask said. “If you take the first period out of the last game, I thought the last two periods in that game were really good. Today we continued to do that. They had shots. But most of them came from the outside. We eliminated a lot of those rebound opportunities. I think that’s something that every team likes to do. We succeeded today.”
