Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask has been cooler than the other side of the pillow this postseason. In his first playoff run as the Boston’s true #1, all Rask has done is post a 13-5 record with a ridiculous 1.73 GAA (perhaps he teases Tim Thomas about his pedestrian 1.98 GAA in 2011). So the hockey “pundits” may argue which goalie had a more epic playoff performance when the dust settles, but there is no doubt that Tuukka is the unanimous winner when it comes to….fashion.
Tuukka is just one cool, calm & collected character, no bunkers in his future.
Bruins winger Tyler Seguin has taken a lot of heat for his lack of scoring during the playoffs. However, #19 is playing well in other areas of the game. He is playing well defensively and using his speed to create opportunities.
And he did just that with his new linemates Chris Kelly & Daniel Paille. Seguin figured in both goals, setting up the game winner.
As he and Bruins fans everywhere lost their minds as Paille found pay dirt.
Ever since Jaromir Jagr was acquired by the Boston Bruins late in the season, he has become part of Hub pop culture. From 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Fred Toucher’s hilarious “The Jagr” impressions to the infatuation with #68′s facial hair, Jagr is making his mark.
Especially on this Bruins fan:
Ladies and gentlemen, I want to introduce you “The Jagrine” beard. This is official Stanley Cup Playoff Beard of 2013.
Let’s hope adamantium sticks protrude through Jagr’s hockey gloves, so he can pot a few goals.
Jaromir Jagr AKA “The Jagr” AKA “The Jagrine” has become a cult figure during his stead as a member of the Boston Bruins. Jagr Bomb shirts have been made and people are sporting mullets to pay homage to the future hall of famer.
But this power ballad set to Tina Turner’s “Simply The Best” takes the cake. It’s just passion and raw emotion for “The Jagr”.
In any language, Jaromir Jagr is a gift from the hockey gods for Boston.
