Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask was almost hit by an Octopus during the National Anthem prior to Game 3 of the first round of the 2014 NHL Eastern Conference playoffs.

It was the second octopus thrown on the ice by the Detroit Red Wings fans but came so close that it caused Rask to flinch.

I could only imagine how pissed I would be if I was drilled in the face by an octopus.
