Tuukka Rask went full milk crates on Cory Conacher

You never go full milk crates.

NHL: Tampa Bay Lightning at Boston Bruins Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight’s Bruins-Lightning game was a chippy affair, with scrums, fights, face washes and general surliness after pretty much every whistle.

Hide the milk crates!
