Rask: ‘Don’t know to cry or laugh’

Perhaps it was complete frustration of it all that inspired Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask [1] to sum up the current state of affairs for the Bruins after firing 47 shots on net and scoring twice in a 3-2 shootout loss to Montreal, extending their futility streak to nine games.

“I don’t know to cry or laugh here because I think we pretty much dominated the whole game,” Rask said [2] of his teammates who outshot Montreal, 47-25.

“Good chances and their goalie plays an unbelievable game. Going into shootout, I wanted to win so bad, make that save.”

Neither team seemed destined to score after two scoreless rounds to open the shootout. But then Brian Gionta beat Rask up top with a backhander. And when Marc Savard [3] failed on his attempt, the ninth straight ‘L’ was in the books.

“Their guy happened to beat me there and we took the loss,” Rask said. “At least we get a point so it’s something.”
