The B’s Are Back! A Look at the Bruins’ Goalies

Now, let’s take a look at the Bruins’ goalies:

Goalies: Tuukka Time

Tuukka Rask 2011-2012 stats: GP 23 W 11 L 8 OTL 3 GAA 2.05 SV% .929 SO 3

With Tim Thomas choosing to sit out this season, it’s Tuukka Time. Tuukka Rask, who has been plagued by injuries the last two seasons, will be the starting goaltender in between the pipes for the B’s.

The Bruins hope he can return to the form he was during the 2009-10 season (GP 45 W 22 L 12 OTL 5 GAA 1.97 SV% .931 SO 5). He wont play that many games obviously, but he will be hungry. As a Bruins fan, who have to be thrilled at the fact he chose to take a one year deal so he could earn a bigger contract. If that doesn’t scream “I’m going to play my b*lls off”, I don’t know what does. I’m going to go ahead and make the prediction that we’ll hear “Two U’s, two K’s, two points” quite often this season.

Anton Khudobin career stats: GP 7 W 5 L 1 OTL 0 GAA 1.32 SV% .961 SO 1

Anton Khudobin played very well in his only Bruins start last season, a 3-1 win in Ottawa that featured 44 saves from the 26-year-old. Though this might be his last season with the Bruins after recently expressing interest in returning to the KHL after the season, expect him to triple his career games with the 48-game schedule being crammed together.
