In the second period of the Boston Bruins’ 6-4 loss at the Montreal Canadiens, a green dot danced around the crease of goalie Tuukka Rask.
Somewhere inside Bell Centre sat an idiot. And they had a laser pointer.
We’ve seen this before, of course. Miikka Kiprusoff had a laser hit his mask several times at the Vancouver Canucks back in 2010. Ditto Jose Theodore, who had it happen that year in a game at the New York Rangers.
In this case, Rask said the laser didn’t affect him.
“You know, I saw it in the second but it was in the offensive zone. Good thing I didn’t go blind or anything,” he told ESPN Boston’s Joe McDonald.
Here's a look from NESN, via Kevin V.:
As we’ve said in the past: Laser pointers are explicitly banned from arenas, but there’s only so much that ushers and other personnel can do.
It’s on us, as fans, to police our own. And shining a laser point on the ice, no matter how much you loathe the opponent, is something narc-worthy.
