Boston Sports Then & Now:
Yes, the Bruins had a few brain farts and gave away Game Four to the New York Rangers.
Yes, Tuukka Rask let in a goal that he soon rather forget. The slo-mo goal from hell was like watching a horror movie. You see the killer behind your lady and all you can do is scream….NOOOOOO!
However, this is not 2010, but don’t tell MSG Reporter Stan Fischler that:
What did I tell you — a fourth-liner did the trick. #Rangers have #Bruins where they want them — in Panics-vlle. #Rask won’t be the same.

Tuukka Rask slipping on invisible banana peel on ice is latest in the endless collection of #Boston sports blunders. Blowing series next. — Stan Fischler (@StanFischler) May 24, 2013
What a tool bag….this is what he tweeted about Tuukka after Game 3:
If ever the expression, “finding a way to win” had meaning it was Boston’s 2-1 triumph tonight. #Bruins did; #Rangers didn’t. Rask: A-1.

AROUND THE WEB
A.B. According to Toucher & Rich and descriptions/comments on numerous websites – the unnamed reporter from 98.5 The Sports Hub angered Bruins goalie, Tuukka Rask, by touching (and possibly knocking over) his iPad.
For me, the story isn’t the swearing on live television. For me, the stare down is the story. If Tuukka had punched the reporter in the face I wouldn’t have...

We’ve all had that moment of embarrassment where it seems like everybody in the world is watching when it happens. Well in Tuukka Rask’s case it almost was that. Rask tripped and fell on the ice during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals against the Rangers in Madison Square Garden attempting to make a save on a shot from Rangers...
The Rangers scored one of the strangest goals you’ll ever see in the second period of Thursday’s Game 4 against the Bruins, and it energized the team. Luckily, the Bruins had an “energy” line waiting to help neutralize the threat.
Now, as the Blueshirts head into the third period of what could be their last game of the year, Tuukka Rask and the B’s have a lead — but the...
A legend grew, a monkey was tossed off a back and a city sighed in relief. Such is the existence of a sports team in Boston. Tuukka Rask, whose every move was scrutinized under an electron microscope after the "Tuukka Tumble," shook that pesky (and a bit unfair) closeout monkey off his back. In his best game of the series, Rask stood on his head, made huge save after...
The stats were staring Tuukka Rask and the Boston Bruins in the face. Failing to send the New York Rangers packing at Madison Square Garden in Game 4, the sky was once again falling in the Hub. Rask, the epicenter of the Bruinsâ second round choke against the Philadelphia Flyers in 2010 and holding a 2-8 record and .890 save-percentage in his career in âcloseout situationsâ...
BOSTON — Tuukka Rask appeared to give the Rangers life in Game 4 when he caught an edge, fell over and allowed Carl Hagelin to get New York back into that game and into the series. On Saturday night in Game 5, however, Rask took all the life out of the Rangers with one big save.
New York captain Ryan Callahan got loose midway through the period with his team trailing 2-1 and walked...
We've all heard that expression "boy, he'd like to have that one back." I'm pretty sure that applies to Tuukka Rask here. In Thursday night's game, with the Bruins up 2-0, Rask moves to his left, slips somehow, and allows a Carl Haglin barely-there shot to roll on by:
There's so much to love/hate about this goal, depending on what team you...

One game after a horrible gaff, Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask made up for it in Game 5.
Rask stopped New York Rangers forward Ryan Callahan on a breakaway to preserve a 2-1 lead in the third period of Saturday’s game in Boston.
With the puck in the defensive zone, Carl Hagelin blocked a shot from Bruins forward Brad Marchand, and whisked a...
The Bruins couldn't close out the sweep on Thursday night so game 5 is on for tonight. The Bruins played great in game 4 but Tuukka Rask blew the game for them because it really looked like he got drunk in between periods when he fell down on his butt and let in a goal.Game 5 is now at home though and the Bruins really need to cap off the series tonight or else Boston will spiral...

Tuukka Rask can't handle the 'changeup' from Carl Hagelin.
Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask saw the replay of his Game 4 gaffe over and over on television.
''I saw it in my head, too,'' he said Friday, a day after he fell in the crease and allowed a goal that helped the New York Rangers stay alive in the Eastern Conference semifinals. ''You can either cry about it or laugh about it. I choose to have a sense of humor...

Boston boy, Chris Kreider scored a re-directed pass from Rick Nash high past Tuukka Rask for the overtime game winner putting some life back into the Rangers playoff hopes.The Bruins should have easily won this game if it weren't for two "flukes."

After the Bruins 4-3 OT series close out loss, many fans are in full blown panic. Well, Darth Vader has a thing or two to teach you about Game 5.
1. I find Your Lack Of Faith….Disturbing
Yes Darth, I find the Bruins fan base lack of faith disturbing as well. Everyone on sports radio is going back to the epic demise of 2010 and the struggles versus Toronto after the Bruins brain...
