It’s not unusual in the game of hockey to compare goaltenders when going into a playoff series.  And as expected, the matchup between Boston’s Tuukka Rask (8-4, 2.22 GAA) and Pittsburgh’s Tomas Vokoun (6-1, 1.85 GAA) is being dissected as we approach the Eastern Conference Finals between the Bruins and Penguins.

On UNO Sports Tonight, Michael Felger broke it down in an interesting way.  Looking at it from the vantage point of not Rask vs. Vokoun, but rather Rask vs. the Penguins offense and Vokoun vs. the Bruins offense.

“Tuukka Rask is not going against the Bruins offense,” said Felger.  “Tuukka Rask is going against Sidney Crosby, and Vokoun is going against the Bruins.”
