You don't see that every day

A weird sequence happened in the third period of the Bruins’ overtime win against the Rangers.

Boston and New York were tied 2-2 in the final minutes of the game, and Tuukka Rask was seen skating toward the Bruins’ bench.

Odd, considering the Black and Gold weren’t on the power play nor down a goal.

So, what happened?

“I just had to tell something to (Jaroslav Halak) real quick,” Rask joked after the game. “I honestly thought we were down 2-1.

“… We?re in the entertainment industry, I hope people got a good laugh out of it. I sure did.”

The goalie also threw off his teammates.

“I thought we had a power play ? I was a little confused,” Brad Marchand said after the game. “? I think Tuukks was trying to throw everybody off. … He’s going to catch some heat for that. ? He made a lot of big saves tonight, so he gets a free pass.”

Head coach Bruce Cassidy added, jokingly: “You?d think he has access to the scoreboard. … At the end of the day, we got it squared away.”

Thankfully the gaffe didn’t turn costly for Rask, as the Bruins went on to win on Brad Marchand’s overtime goal.
