Tuukka Rask last game as a Bruin ? The Isles are a sneaky wagon. Unfortunately for the loyal islanders fans they will get pumped by Tampa Bay next round.
So how are the Bruins going to blame everyone but themselves for a series loss this time?
My bets on the media blaming Tuukka Rask again.
Bruins defense has let Tuukka Rask down badly in this series
THE BOSTON BRUINS BLAME LIST FOR 2021:
- Kevan Miller over Chara
- Tuukka Rask
- The refs
- TD Garden fans
- Don Sweeney
- Bruce Cassidy
- No depth... again
- Jacobs is an asshole
- They should've won in 2019
- The refs
- Biased league
Some of them aren't wrong, though.
🎥 Coach Cassidy confirms that Tuukka Rask will start Game 6. Jake DeBrusk will enter the lineup and play with Charlie Coyle and Karson Kuhlman.
Of course, there's going to be a lot of "whataboutism" re. Rask vs. Swayman in Game 6.
I dunno, I don't think your rookie goaltender (as great as he was this year!) was going to fare much better with this defense playing at this level:
The Anti-Rask people are having a field day.
By solely blaming Rask you are letting the GM off the hook for badly mismanaging the D, the bottom 6 and aside from Craig Smith , the entire offseason.
Bergeron: "We knew that it wasn't always easy for Rask with what he was dealing with, but kudos to him for wanting to be there for us."
Tuukka Rask on another season with the window closing: "We're all getting older — it's not going to last forever."
Reasons for the loss.
1. Defense. The Bruins banked on their prospects to carry the load on D and they failed to replace the Vets.
2. Bottom 6. Just a black hole of production from both units. Lazar was a nice patch but it wasn't enough.
3. Varlomov was better than Rask.
Tuukka Rask confirms that he may need surgery: "I battled, I tried. I just fell short"
Dougie Hamilton - $700,000
Taylor Hall - $700,000
Tuukka Rask - $700,000
James Reimer - $700,000
Bruce Boudreau - $700,000
If this is the last game for Tuukka Rask as a Bruin.. it’s so unrepresentative of what he did.
Most wins, and playoffs wins in Bruins history.
Had a .922sv% including a .926sv% in the playoffs.
A consistently elite goalie, consistently under appreciated.
Love you Tuukka ❤️
Tuukka Rask: "I don't wanna get into my injuries right now. We can talk about it at exit meetings. I promise I'll give you a full lowdown then. That doesn't need to be the headline right now."
Rask: 17 GA on 16.0 xG for -1.0 saved over expected.
Varlamov/Sorokin: 16 GA on 20.3 xG for +4.3 https://t.co/KDrplGlwCz
'Chef, jeg er syg... jeg regner med at være rask efter min vaccine.'
'Hej familie og venner? Nej jeg vil bare lige sige at jeg ikke kan lege før om hundrede år igen'
Ikke for noget vel, men kunne man betænke resten af os med de hensyn, vi har taget fucking for evigt?
I don't want to blame Tuukka Rask. It’s a team loss. To say that it was the fault of our goalkeeper, while our defense was not healthy, our other 6 (3rd row and 4th), except Craig Smith, have not been satisfied all season. We have to move forward, find solutions and start again. https://t.co/wSPBuRgrmX
You got a better chance of seeing Jesus Christ himself than tuukka rask saving a shot on a breakaway
Jeg tror også, jeg stadig har skrækken fra januar siddende i mig. Jeg var rask smittebærer og det vil jeg ikke ønske gentager sig (hverken for mig eller andre).
Godt, du lige tjekker op ift. dit helbred 🥰

Forsvarer hindrer en rask utførelse av frikast og skal ha 2. Men angripers reaksjon er også overilt, faktisk hans (re)aksjon vi går i dialog om bør være mer enn 2. Mener vi gjorde rett, så lenge reglene ikke åpner for å "nulle" bestrafning når det går til begge lag. Uenig i den?
Tuukka Rask has such kind eyelashes.
No. 1 - Tuukka Rask
No. 2 - Daniel Vladar
No. 2 - Jeremy Swayman
Out : Jaroslav Halak
Je vois les Bruins donner un contrat minimum vétéran à Rask. C’est une sorte d’assurance tout risque. Vladar et Swayman se partageront le reste.
Tu penses que ça va se passer comment pour l'an prochain ?
Rask et Halak sont UFA cet été non ?
Émergence de Swayman ?
tuukka rask always deserved better than the bruins
