TUUKKA RASK RUMORS & GOSSIP
The Boston Bruins may possess the best roster in the Eastern Conference, however, they don’t have the luxurious goaltending depth they once enjoyed as recently as two seasons ago when former Conn Smythe hero and two-time Vezina winner Tim Thomas…Read more →The post Boston Bruins: is Tuukka Rask tired? appeared first on The Hockey Daily.
Who doesn’t love everyone’s favorite Finn, Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask (oh besides the Tim Thomas militia)? He is a great role model for kids (except for his post shootout nuclear meltdowns) for his humbleness and professionalism. Plus he does have times being an absolute goofball (see 2011 Stanley Cup celebrations).
This sounds like the makings of a great show on Adult Swim or...
It is well documented that Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has a short fuse. Just recently after a shootout loss to the St. Louis Blue, Tuukka took out his frustrations on his timber.
Well it looks like one a previous Tuukka Rask meltdown has been set to the Holly Dolly Polka…
And the Leek Mix to boot!

Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask HATES to lose, so much so that he did his best Incredible Hulk versus the Blues…..Tuukka Rask SMASH!
After losing a shootout to the St. Louis Blues, Tuukka tried to make his stick into kindling and said that the NHL should “gas” the shootout. More and more people are losing the luster for the shootout, but “gas” Tuukka?
I would pick my words...
Tuukka Rask is one of the most competitive players in the NHL, and sometimes the Bruins goaltender lets his frustration show on the ice after a tough defeat.
After losing in a shootout to the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night, Rask let everyone know how upset he was by swinging his stick against the goal post, then slamming it on the ice as he skated toward the Bruins bench.
BOSTON — Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask stood in front of his stall in the locker room Thursday night and said what was probably on the minds of all the Bruins after their 3-2 shootout loss to the St. Louis Blues.
Rask said something in Finnish, presumably a word not suitable for printing here before finally getting to the heart of the matter.
“I mean, it sucks. It just sucks.”...
After St. Louis Blues forward Derek Roy beat Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask for the game-winning shootout goal, Rask had one of his patented freak outs. Except this time Rask couldn’t break his stick and instead the camera just showed him slamming it repeatedly into the post and into the ice, staying fully intact. Good job, good effort. [@cjzero]
The Bruins and Blues played a great 65+ minute affair in Boston on Thursday night and, unfortunately, it went to a shootout. The Blues ended up winning when Derek Roy beat Tuukka Rask, and to say that Tuukka was less than pleased would be an understatement.
It certainly wasn’t the greatest Tuukka meltdown we’ve seen, but it was special nonetheless.

Tuukka Rask prefers to face a lot of shots.
The St. Louis Blues are likely to comply.
Rask will probably get the nod in net and find himself busy again as he tries to help the Boston Bruins to their first home win over the Blues in nearly 13 years Thursday night.
Boston (14-6-1) gives up a league-low 1.76 goals per game, and Rask is a big reason for that.
He ranks among the NHL...
