Day 4: Picture of your all time favorite goalie and why
From his name being weird, to his face being weirder, I love everything about Tuukka Rask. I love his old fits of rage and the now odd calm he has. I love that he cares so much about his team and also the game. I love that while everyone was worrying about if he could even fill Tim Thomas’ shoes, he just took the Bruins right to the SCF without even blinking. He put 2010 behind him, became a starter, and silenced the critics by just being himself, and i have so much respect for him because of that.
Q: You’re a fan, you’re coming in to watch this. Who’s the one player in the entire tournament you’d be interested in seeing?
Some guy: You can say yourself.
Rask: No, you know, I’m gonna say Brad Marchand.
Q: How do you think he’s gonna do in a tournament like this, given his ability to agitate the guys?
Rask: I don’t think he’s gonna agitate all that much. I saw he plays on the first line with Bergy and Sidney Crosby, so just keep your stick on the ice and score some points, buddy. That’s what I’d say.
Q: He comes down on you - there’s no way you gonna let him score?
