Found August 14, 2013 on Boston Sports Then & Now:
PLAYERS: Tuukka Rask
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
Yes, you can help Vaughn pick Bruins netminder, Tuukka Rask’s equipment for the upcoming season. And we are as serious as Tuukka when someone messes with his iPad. InGoal Magazine:  Thanks to the magic of social media and the good folks at Vaughn Custom Sports, you can help choose the look of Rask’s next set. And while the differences, like the use of colour itself, in the five options, are subtle – Rask clearly wants to maintain the predominately (and dominant) mostly white trend of last season – the responsibility is still great. So head on over to the Vaughn Facebook Page and vote for which of the five options you prefer by adding a “like” to the one you want Rask to wear, and piping up with the reasons why in the comment section below. But hurry, now that the NHL and NHL Players’ Association have finally agreed on the new pad height rules for next season, the big companies like Vaughn have already started cranking out new gear. Here are the five options you can vote on:     We think Option #2 is PRETTY PISSAH. You have to rep the Black & Gold. When you yell out Tuuuuukkkkkaaaa this season, you can say “I voted for those SICK pads!”. So let your voice be heard Bruins fans, vote today!   The post Bruins Beat: Help Vaughn Choose Tuukka Rask’s New Equipment (PHOTOS) appeared first on Boston Sports Then and Now.
