The Boston Bruins have used their unwanted break to absolutely crush Tuukka Rask.

It started with Zdeno Chara telling the entire world that Rask has bad gas, and it continued on Thursday with Brad Marchand also noting that he would prefer not to quarantine with the B’s 33-year-old ace in net. But Marchand’s reasoning had less to do with ‘stinky’ problems and more about what Rask and Marchand would do while together.

“We’d just be hammered the whole time and it would be his fault,” Marchand joked.

(For the record, this leads me to believe that Rask is to blame for what happened at the team’s Stanley Cup parade in 2011.)

But seriously, the B’s are killing Rask during this season pause caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Bruins even created a TikTok account just to highlight all of Rask’s stick-breaking meltdowns.

Fortunately for Rask, he was not the only player Marchand dunked on when discussing his suboptimal quarantine buddies, as No. 63 also took a playful jab at B’s winger Jake DeBrusk.

“I feel like I’d have to babysit [DeBrusk] like one of my kids and clean up after him,” Marchand quipped.
