According to ESPNBoston.com tempers flared during today's morning skate when Shawn Thornton's shot on Tuukka Rask went a little too high for Tuukka's comfort. The puck hit the right shoulder area (collarbone) of Rask which provoked a fiery response (an obscenity) from the netminder . He then skated to the bench where he slammed his stick against the boards as if to say, "Are you frickin kidding me, bro."

B's coach Claude Julien quickly dispelled any concern about a serious injury to his star keeper and even joked his goaltender's temper tantrum.

“He’s fine,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien. “We didn’t want him falling in front of the door when he went out of his crease, and I told him, ‘you’re making me look bad. I told everybody you were normal. But I did tell them you had a temper, so you’re ok.’ No issues.”

Apparently, earlier in the series Julien described Rask as a normal goalie but confessed Rask has a bit of a temper - some context to the quote above.
