Tuukka Rask freaks out after shootout loss to Montreal

Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has had a history of freaking out after losses and on Wednesday night he slipped back into his old ways after a 6-5 shootout loss to the visiting Montreal Canadiens.  Montreal made a miraculous comeback and tied the game with 8.2 seconds left on a power play goal by Andrei Markov.  Neither team could score in overtime where both teams had their share of chances but couldn’t convert.  No one scored in the shootout until Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher put on five-hole on Rask during the 6th round.

The freak-out from Rask is perfect in every aspect.  He doesn’t break his stick, he falls down and then his stick flies out of the camera view to center ice.  Rask couldn’t have had his tantrum go any worse if he tried.  The only worse goalie tantrum I’ve seen is Rask’s tantrum he threw in the AHL four years ago:
