Tuukka Rask doesn't view Boston's semifinal match-up as him versus New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist.
"I don't care if there's a wall out there, I just want to beat the other team," Rask said Wednesday prior to Game 1 Thursday night. "I don't want to put too much into this 'goalie matchup' talk. Sometimes you face a hot goalie and he's unbeatable, but for us it's more team vs. team. I just try to do the best I can to help us win games." Rask and Lundqvist had very similar numbers during the regular season, but Lundqvist had superior statistics in the first round of the playoffs. "I don't feel like I've been extraordinary," Rask said of his postseason play. "I feel I can be better. Consistency is the key, but you have to make the big save at the big moment." And he has displayed a penchant for doing that so far.
