Not so fast.
Not so fast on the coronation walk. Not so fast on the parade talk.
Not so fast on the Tim Thomas comparisons, either.
In essence, those three words summed up the kind of night it was for the Bruins and for goalie Tuukka Rask last night: not so fast.
For the first time since the Toronto Maple Leafs were skating circles around them and no one was talking about anything but a possible shake-up, Rask and the defense in front of him were equally shaky.
The result was a 6-5 overtime loss in which Bruins coach Claude Julien was asked if Rask’s struggles were a result of his own play or the defense in front of him.
