David Schlemko Scores Silky Smooth Shootout Goal

The Bruins and Flames had to go to the eighth round of the shootout to find a winner, but what a winner it was. Defenseman David Schlemko—who the Flames just claimed on waivers—pulled a nice little do-si-do that completely fooled Tuukka Rask, and secured both points for the Flames. Just look at that little tap in! » 3/05/15 10:42pm 3/05/15 10:42pm

Doc Emrick Calls Play-By-Play For NHLers Playing Bubble Hockey Games

On the less-unhinged side of the NHL Awards, here we have Doc Emrick lending his play-by-play skills to a bubble hockey game between NHL Stars. One of the matchups included dueling goaltenders: Tampa Bay's Ben Bishop and the Bruins' Tuukka Rask. » 6/24/14 10:49pm 6/24/14 10:49pm

Bruins Unimpressed By Carey Price's 48-Save Night

Normally, if you allow Boston to score three goals, you're not going to win. They feature the single best defensive forward, blueliner, and netminder in the league, with everyone else taking their cues from a style designed to strangle and frustrate. That style worked just as it was supposed to last night, the Bruins… » 5/02/14 9:17am 5/02/14 9:17am

Tuukka Mad

Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask was pissed at himself for allowing the Canadiens' second goal and couldn't control his anger as he tried to drink. Rask has a habit of reacting poorly to giving up goals. » 5/01/14 9:22pm 5/01/14 9:22pm

Pavel Datsyuk's Slick Moves Put Detroit Up 1-0 Over Bruins

Just 30 seconds before this play, Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard watched Milan Lucic 's redirection of Jarome Iginla's shot/pass on goal harmlessly trickle through the crease. It was the Bruins best chance of the night and on the pendulum swing back, they were down 1-0. These things always seem to happen that way: a… » 4/19/14 9:49am 4/19/14 9:49am

Bruins Goalie Baffled By Nasty Center-Ice Shot

On the replay, Jannik Hansen's goal looked more like a baseball pitch than a slap shot, so Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask's inability to stop it made sense. The puck deflected off of Zdeno Chara's stick and dropped, leaving Rask attempting to figure out what the hell just happened. » 12/15/13 12:43pm 12/15/13 12:43pm

After Losing, Tuukka Rask Fails Miserably At Breaking His Goalie Stick

Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask gave up the game-ending shootout goal to Derek Roy for a 3-2 loss, and he was fuming. Of course, Rask tried to break his stick, because that's what one does when they're angry about a loss. "Tried" is the keyword here. » 11/21/13 10:20pm 11/21/13 10:20pm

Tuukka Rask Does Everything He Can, But Chicago Wins Game 5

Amid the 29 credited saves he made last night, Tuukka Rask made three or four exceptional saves and single-handedly kept the Bruins in the game all night, making the always-intense final minutes of the game possible. Once pulled for a man-advantage with less than a minute in the game, Rask had barely time enough to… » 6/23/13 10:34am 6/23/13 10:34am

The Bruins Are Looking Impenetrable Again

After a 2-0 win—a merciful regulation win—Boston finds itself halfway to a Stanley Cup, so it's not too early to start thinking Conn Smythe. That talk begins and ends with the man in net, but that's only because MVP can't be a team award. » 6/18/13 9:23am 6/18/13 9:23am

Tuukka Rask Shuts Out Chicago Despite "Shitty" Ice; Bruins Lead 2-1

Game 3 actually ended in regulation, a nice change of pace from the first two games, but not before a short scuffle with about 11 seconds left. It looked like it was going to get really ugly for a second, but the refs quickly got control of the action and the game ended without (much) incident. Unless you count… » 6/17/13 11:21pm 6/17/13 11:21pm

Not Content Merely To Win, The Bruins Are Traumatizing Franchises

The Boston Bruins will welcome the winner of the Chicago-L.A. series to the Stanley Cup Final because of their utter dismantling of the Pittsburgh Penguins. In that series, the Bruins were able to stonewall a Pittsburgh team that won 75 percent of its regular season games and led the league in scoring by a healthy… » 6/08/13 9:06pm 6/08/13 9:06pm
