Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask makes head save against Lightning

first_imgBruins goaltender Tuukka Rask made a beautiful save with his head on Wednesday in a round-robin NHL postseason game against the Lightning.With a shot from near the blue line speeding toward him, he intentionally deflected the puck away with his head like a soccer player. I still can’t believe this head save by Rask. The puck gets on him pretty quickly, and not only does he see it and position his head to block it, but he then nods it into the corner. Incredible rebound control with the noggin.
