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 forward Carl Hagelin.
What happened next is the stuff of epic failure.
Rask misjudged the shot, tripped and watched as Hagelin’s shot trickled into the net for a Rangers goal; a goal which came just 1:38 seconds after Boston forward Torey Krug scored his third goal of the playoffs
