Brandon Saad picked Tyler Seguin clean in the defensive zone and brought the puck down the ice before flipping it across to Michal Handzus, who rattled it in off the post to make it 1-0. That snapped Rask's shutout streak which dated to the first period of Game 2, but the lead didn't last for long.
None of them did.
"I don't think anybody expected that before the game," Rask said. "But they're a good offensive team. When you give them goals and they get the lead, obviously, you have to start opening up too and creating some offense. That's what happened. I think if you take something positive out of this, you've got to look at the fact that we scored five goals."
