Other than his shaky effort in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the New York Rangers, Tuukka Rask has been rock solid between the pipes for the Boston Bruins in the postseason.

Despite Rask's noteworthy performance through two rounds, he won't be the most impressive statistical goalie when the Bruins take on the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals. Tomas Vokoun has a better goals against average and save percentage than Rask this postseason, setting up another Eastern Conference goaltending duel. 

Vokoun's emergence makes the Penguins an even more formidable foe. The veteran took over for Marc Andre Fleury in the first round of the postseason after a string of underwhelming performances. But Vokoun, like Rask, has never played on this big of a stage.
