Boston Goaltending Situation

Boston Goaltending Situation

With Tuuka Rask returning to practice yesterday, let’s take a look at where the Bruins Goaltending situation is.

Rask took a three day leave of absence after a 8-5 loss to Vancouver last week.

He also has not had his best season with a 3.05 goals against average, and a .901 save percentage.

On top of this expected backup Jaroslav Halak has been playing in Montreal form again, with a record of 6-2-1, a goals against average of 1.77, and a save percentage of .945 (second best in the league).

Coach Cassidy said yesterday, “We have to balance that with how well Jaro’s played. So I can’t tell you whats going to happen. I just know we have a lot of hockey left.”

Who should be getting the starts?

Is it Rask’s spot and that’s final, or do the Bruins ride Halak’s hot play and put Rask on the bench, or do they split the starts?

All different ways of going about this situation that Coach Cassidy will have to figure out along the way.
