Tuukka Rask turned an outstanding first season as the Boston Bruins' No. 1 goalie into a long-term commitment on Wednesday by signing an eight-year contract to stay with the Eastern Conference champions.
For all the talk about the Conn Smythe award, Tuukka Rask just wants to win after he played a supporting role when Tim Thomas led the Boston Bruins to the Stanley Cup two years ago.
Corey Crawford was in the stands when Patrick Kane slammed home the goal that secured the Stanley Cup for the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010.
Backup Andrew Raycroft made 37 saves, Brandon Segal scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period, and the Dallas Stars survived a late scare to win their fifth straight, beating the Washington Capitals 2-1 on Thursday night.
Raycroft said shutting down offensive threats Ovechkin, Alexander Semin and Nicklas Backstrom took a team effort.
"They have two of the top five players in the world (Ovechkin and Semin)," said Raycroft, who improved to 6-3-1 for his career against the Caps. "They're dangerous. We did a great job. I don't remember any real good rush chances they had. They're the best in the best league in the world. You have to be sharp."
