Back in April, we were talking about various Bruins-related happenings in our staff Slack chat when one of our writers made an astute observation: Tuukka Rask was on the verge of making history.
Rask had already made history by that point last season, of course, breaking Tiny Thompson’s Bruins win record back in February.
While that’s certainly an impressive mark, the “verge of history” we were discussing several months back is, arguably, even better, because it involves laughing at the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Heading into this season, Rask had 265 regular season wins in his 12-year NHL career. We’re 3 games into Year 13, and he has added 2 more wins for a grand total of 267, giving him a place of honor in the history of a storied Original 6 franchise.
