Rask on D&H: 'I got lucky' on diving save

Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask joined the Dale & Holley show Thursday afternoon and talked about his heroics in Game 4 of the B's first-round series vs. the Sabres. Rask made a diving save on Mike Grier midway through the third period to keep the game tied at 2, stretching across the crease to stop Grier's one-timer. "I just gave it everything I had there on that shot and I think he kind of fanned on it and it ended up hitting my blocker," Rask said. "That's one of those saves [where] sometimes it hits you, sometimes it doesn't. That time I got lucky there."

 

Rask already has a reputation as a goalie who does not get rattled easily, and even Wednesday's double-overtime thriller didn't leave him worried.. Said Rask: "You can't be too nervous when you're playing, but I talked to people who were at the game and they said they were pretty nervous about that game."

Rivers on D&C: Too much instigating in NBA

Celtics coach Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning. Rivers said he, like other Boston sports fans, enjoyed watching the exciting finishes at TD Garden and Fenway Park Wednesday night. "I watched both overtimes [in the Bruins' victory]," he said. "These games go a little too long for my liking. I don't know anything about hockey. I just know what I was watching was exciting. So I did watch it. And I keep a watch on the Red Sox because of Terry [Francona]."

 

As for his own team, which takes a 2-0 series lead into Game 3 at Miami Friday night, Rivers said his team responded well to Kevin Garnett's Game 2 suspension. "It clearly gives you a rallying point," Rivers said. "Having said that, it could go the other way, too. For one game, it was terrific. [Glen Davis] was absolutely sensational. But I personally think the MVP of the game was Kendrick Perkins....
