Not only does T-Mobile Arena supposedly have louder speakers than other venues. But it’s quite toasty in there, as well.
Upon the conclusion of the Boston Bruins’ narrow 4-3 win over the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday night, goalie Tuukka Rask had to be helped off the ice. It certainly was an unpleasant sight for the Bruins, but upon further review, it wasn’t anything too serious.
Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy downplayed the incident, then Rask added this.
“Just cramping,” he said, via Bruins.com. “I’m good.”
The 32-year-old noted that he thought heat was a factor in his cramping.
Rask and Jaroslav Halak have formed a tremendous goalie tandem, but losing Rask would be a pretty big blow to the Bruins, who likely would have to call up Max Lagace to back up Halak if Rask were to miss any time.
For now, though, it appears Rask is fine.
