Tuukka Rask Thinks Bruins’ Struggles Are Mental, Stresses Importance of Maintaining ‘Battle Level’ (Video)


This season has been inexplicable for the Bruins. After a Stanley Cup hangover, the B's looked like the best team in hockey for a while, only to then fall back down to earth over the last two months.

Goaltender Tuukka Rask, who is sidelined with an abdominal/groin strain, said that he thinks Boston's recent woes have been more mental than anything. He thinks that the B's need to up their battle level each game, and if they're able to do so, they should be all right heading down the stretch and into the postseason.

Rask also discussed a number of other topics while sitting down with NESN's Dale Arnold and Mark Mowers before Tuesday's game against the Lightning. The Finnish netminder chimed in on some potential NHL rule changes and whether goaltenders are protected enough.

Check out the video above to hear from Rask.
