Jonathan Toews can relate to Tuukka Rask.

The Chicago Blackhawks centre knows what it’s like to let a curse word slip during a post-game interview on live national television.

An over-excited Toews did it at the world junior hockey championship in 2007 after helping Canada defeat Russia to win the gold medal.

On Monday, it was Rask’s turn after the Boston Bruins goalie shut out Toews’ Blackhawks to win Game 3 of the Stanley Cup final.

Asked by NBC’s Pierre McGuire about his rebound control, Rask replied: “I’m always working on that. But you know, it’s tough because the ice gets so s---ty toward the ends of the periods. You’ve got to pay extra attention to that.”

Much like Toews back in 2007, Rask was also the star of the night, racking up 28 saves to blank the Blackhawks for a 2-0 win and a 2-1 series lead.

Toews scored the game-winning goal for Canada in the championship game at the ’07 world junior. Asked by TSN’s James Cybulski how the gold-medal victory compared to the one from the previous year, the young forward said: “Oh, it’s unbelievable. It’s a great feeling. You know, we’ve overcome so much and tonight was a battle from start to finish and we did a f---ing great job.”

Toews led Canada with seven points in the tournament, but he’s best remembered for scoring three shootout goals against the U.S. in the semifinal to advance to the championship game.
