Tuukka Rask’s streak extends to 17 games with a different kind of performance

(Greg M. Cooper/USA TODAY Sports)

At times, it appeared as though Anton Khudobin was in net for the Boston Bruins Tuesday night at TD Garden. His style could best be described as erratic, or overly active, during the course of a game, but it's been working for him this season.

Tuukka Rask is the complete opposite. The No. 1 netminder for the Bruins is always calm, almost boring to a point where it appears he's not interested, which couldn't be further from the truth. When he's focused and engaged, he's making the hard shots look easy to stop.

Well, that wasn't the case during Boston's 3-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils.
