PLAYERS: Tuukka Rask
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
Tuukka Rask‘s struggles appear to be a thing of the past, if the first 20 minutes of Saturday night’s game are any indication. Coming into the matchup with San Jose, Rask had been pulled three times in his last 10 starts. The goaltender who was so dependable in the beginning of the season began to struggle mightily of late, but through one period of hockey against a tough Sharks team, Rask looks to have busted out of his slump in a big way. The goalie made 12 saves in the first period to keep the game scoreless.

All the Kings Horses and All the Kings Men Couldn't Put Rask Together Again. BRUINS LOSE.

This game was a bag of smashed dickholes smothered in anal sauce. This game made me want to find Tuukka Rask and shove a milkcrate so far up his ass he'd be ******** out Hood product for a month. This game was everything I hate about having to stay up super late for West Coast hockey. If this game was a person, I'd smother it with a pin cushion so I could watch the terror...

Boston Bruins' Dreadful West Coast Trip Continues With 4-2 Loss to Kings

QUICK RECAP: Soderberg in a Shark's Mouth. BRUINS WIN!

Quick recap today. Bruins needed to right the ship after two very subpar outings against the Ducks and Kings. And that's what they got. They went back to basics. They played physical. Played simple. Minus a few flashes, the game was pretty boring. AKA, Bruins Hockey. And it got the win. The defense was still a little sloppy in spots, but overall it was a bit of improvement...
