The Bruins just waived backup goalie Anton Khudobin, who had some decent success in his last go round with the B’s in 2012-13, but the guy’s numbers have been awful this year at 1-5-1 with an .885 save percentage. That just ain’t gonna get it done in the NHL these days.
It got to the point that every time Tuukka Rask wasn’t playing, it was a goddamn adventure out there. For all the crap people gave Tuukka last year for not “carrying” the Bruins, thats exactly what he’s doing this year. When he’s in net the B’s have a shot against most teams. When he’s not? Circus adventure. Zane McIntyre seems to be the next man up from Providence, who has been crushing it in down in the AHL, but had a rough go his last time up to Boston (10 goals on 71 shots for .859 save percentage).
It’s too bad the Bruins don’t have a goalie in waiting that they used a 1st round draft pick on a few years back….that’d be awesome to have a guy like that.
