Tuukka Rask took an awkward fall in the second period on Thursday night with the Bruins leading the Rangers 2-0. The fall resulted in the Rangers' first goal of the night, which opened the door for New York to keep its season alive and come away with a 4-3 win in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Bruins still lead the series 3-1, but they were left searching for answers after failing to put away the Rangers in Game 4. After the game, Rask said that the fall was something that happens to him once or twice a year in practice, but struggled to explain the blunder.

"I need to be more focused I think," Rask said. "It's just a tough mistake."

The Bruins will return to Boston for Game 5 on Saturday, and they hope the Rangers aren't able to muster anymore fluke goals. To hear Rask's entire explanation of tonight's game, check out the video above. Do you expect Rask to bounce back in Game 5? Let us know in the comment box below.
