``It was during the biggest midsummer party in Finland. It was 2 a.m., so you can imagine how I felt when they called me. Next day I was kind of surprised and realized what happened.'' - Goalie Tuukka Rask, remembering when he was traded by Toronto to Boston in June 2006. Rask won his first NHL start Tuesday night, leading the Bruins over the Maple Leafs 4-2.
