The Blackhawks don't get shut out often - just once this season before Monday night against the Bruins.

Tuukka Rask made it twice though, as he stopped 28 shots and the Bruins beat the Blackhawks 2-0 and took a 2-1 series lead. It was Rask's third shutout of the playoffs.

He spoke to Pierre McGuire immediately after the game.

"Not bad," Rask said of how the game looked. "I thought that we didn't give them too much scoring opportunities today. Kept it pretty tight in our own end. Scored two important goals. So got to be happy with that."

McGuire noted that Rask controlled a lot of his rebounds, and wondered if that's a part of his game he's been working on lately.

"I'm always working on that. But you know it's tough because the ice gets so [bad] towards the end of periods, so you gotta pay extra attention to that. But it's been working well so far."
