Pittsburgh Penguins entered the Eastern Conference finals as the top scoring offense in the NHL as they push across 3.4 goals per game. In game one the Penguins were the home team and were shut out 3-0 by the Boston Bruins. It was a nice performance by Bruins goaltender Tukka Rask who turned away 29 Pittsburgh Penguins shots to record a playoff shutout. He has now allowed on goal or less in three of his past four playoff games. For the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs Rask is 9-3-1 with a goal against average of 2.06 in his 13 games. This was the first shutout of the post season to the Pittsburgh Penguins who had scored seven goals in game four and six goals in game five in their previous series with the Ottawa Senators. Pittsburgh was not held without a goal during the regular season. Pittsburgh head coach preached the team will tweak some in his adjustments for game two. There appears to be no movement to a goaltender change for the Penguins. Tomas Vokoun is 6-2 in the post season with an overtime loss and gave up a soft goal in defeat. Former number one Marc Andre Fleury looked so bad in the early rounds it remains doubtful that Pittsburgh would lean to bring Fleury back between the nets.
