CHICAGO — Even-keeled as ever, even after a 3-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final, goaltender Tuukka Rask tried to have a proper perspective.
Even though the costly setback left the Bruins on the brink of elimination, trailing three games to two in this best-of-seven series, Rask did not reveal the slightest hint of panic.
“Well, I just think we have to approach it game by game,’’ said Rask, who turned away 29 shots the Blackhawks put on net.
“We got to go home and it’s a must-win,’’ Rask said. “Good thing we’re at home. So, we’ll focus on Monday and then we’ve got to play a really solid 60-minute effort in order to have a chance.’’ Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
