Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask gave up an easy goal in the second period of Thursday night's Game 4 against the New York Rangers when he tripped himself up and couldn't recover in time to stop Carl Hagelin's backhand shot on the net. Bruins defender Johnny Boychuk deflected Hagelin's shot and really slowed it down, while Rask was positioning himself for a quick slapshot. When Rask tried to adjust for the change in puck speed, he tripped and fell on his butt, leaving him helpless as he watched the puck trickle by him and into the net to cut the Bruins lead in the game to 2-1. The goal ended up being a critical one, as the Rangers tied the game in the third period and won the game in overtime to keep their playoff hopes alive. Video via NHL.

Boston Bruins Goalie Tuukka Rask Drops F Bomb On Reporter

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...

Tuukka Rask slips, falls, allows terrible goal

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...
