Tuukka Rask Clears Up Rumors, Bruins Goalie Explains He ‘Likes Playing in Boston’

Tuukka Rask Clears Up Rumors, Bruins Goalie Explains He 'Likes Playing in Boston'Both Boston Bruins goaltenders have attracted some negative attention as of late, but now it appears that backup netminder Tuukka Rask is amending some of the comments reported by a Finish website.

After questions about the nature of Tim Thomas' most recent facebook post started a firestorm in the Bruins' locker room, Rask too found himself under the gun with concerns over quotes he made to a website in his home country of Finland.

The comments had been read with an online translation tool, Google Translate, and seemed to express some displeasure and angst about his current situation with the Bruins, playing behind Thomas.

Rask cleared the air about the comments on Friday, explaining they were misinterpreted and that he still likes playing in Boston.

"That Google Translate sucks," Rask said in an interview with ESPN Boston. "I said 'Obviously I don't want to be sitting on the bench my whole career and I like it here."

"I am happy and I feel good [this season] for the most part," Rask added. "I think it's been a good year for me and our team for the most part."
