Other than scoring a goal, Tuukka Rask couldn't have done much more in the Boston Bruins' 3-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres Wednesday night.

Rask, who made 35 saves in Game 4, also picked up an assist on Miroslav Satan 's game-winner in double overtime. It was the first overtime assist for a netminder since May 22, 2002.

Detroit Red Wings goalie Dominik Hasek was the last to accomplish the feat when he picked up a helper on Fredrik Olausson 's overtime goal in a 2-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche.
