Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask was having a stellar year up until the NHL season was put on pause due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Rask's 2.12 goals-against average leads the entire NHL this season, and his .929 save percentage ranks second behind former B's backup goaltender Anton Khudobin. He's also tied for second place in shutouts with Elvis Merzlikins and Marc-Andre Fleury with five. 

Some of his saves have been absolutely spectacular, so let's take a look back at some of the best from the 2019-20 campaign starting from the season opener in Dallas.
