Video: Plekanec knocks over Rask, scrum ensues

May 10, 2014, 8:16 PM EDT

Tomas Plekanec got himself into penalty trouble early in Saturday’s Game 5 between the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins. One of his transgressions included knocking over Boston’s goalie Tuukka Rask late in the first period.

Going to the net, Plekanec pushed Rask right over, causing the Bruins’ puck stopper to respond by swatting his blocker at the Canadiens forward. A large pile-up also ensued, with Rask channeling his inner Tim Thomas.

Including early in the second period, Plekanec had taken three minor penalties. The Bruins scored on two of those power plays – both goals coming early in that second period to gain a three-goal lead.

    His inner Thomas?

    Mister arBRUINS, surely you must be joking with your unaware of who mr Thomas is?!?!

    Please lie and tell me that’s the case if it isn’t.

      The force is definitely not strong with this one.

    B’s are playing their game. Not a team in the Eastern Conference that can beat them

    That was not Thomas like. If it were Thomas like then that diving douche would have been carrying his teeth around in a bag…you need to watch some more hockey mr. Patty. Oh yeah, good dive by Gallagher before that Habs goal…give him a 7…he’s not that good.

    That was a textbook case of goalie interference. A real bush league play by Plekanec. I was shocked the refs had the balls to call it. The B’s controlled this game all night long. The only reason it was as close as it was, was because of more xbars and Habs flopping for penalties.

    It was pure irony that after Gallegher stayed on the ice looking for a call after getting nailed against the board, he suddenly comes to life and gets a deflection goal fronting Tuukka, and then runs around the ice like nothing happened. True Montreal hockey at its best. Deke and dive. Deke and dive.
