It’s no secret that Tuukka Rask has had a wild start to the season. Between an innocent collision in practice that caused him a concussion and a crushing loss to the LA Kings with less than a second left in OT Rash, similarly to Torey Krug, has had a rocky start to the season.
After the shocking overtime loss with nine-tenths of a second left in the game, it was obvious Rask was as dumbfounded as to how as the rest of us. “I didn’t see that one coming,” Rask admitted with a small laugh.
“You always try to prepare for every single scenario that might happen. But it just happened so quickly, I had no time to pick that puck up. Before I noticed, it was in the back of the net,
“You hope that [Pastrnak] is going to tie the faceoff. It was a great centerman against him, and he [Anze Kopitar] made us pay.”
While the Bruins defense hasn’t been amazing, Rask’s play has been inconsistent like it usually is, and unfortunately since the Bruins didn’t make any goaltender changes over the offseason he doesn’t have much support from his backups.
