Not A Good Game For Malcolm Subban

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe,

The last thing Claude Julien wanted to do was hook Malcolm Subban again.

On Feb. 20, 2015, Julien pulled Subban in his NHL debut after the goalie allowed three goals on six shots against St. Louis. On Tuesday against Minnesota, Subban’s second NHL start finished just like his first: with him on the bench and a three-spot on the wrong side of the scoreboard.

“I’m not going to lie. There’s some goals we thought our goaltender should have had,” the Bruins coach said after a 5-0 wipeout by the Wild at TD Garden. “But I’m not here to talk about a goaltender who’s in one of his first few games because he let in a couple bad goals. We were terrible in front of him. We weren’t any better. That’s the big picture. That’s more important.”


Game highlights are below...

Boston Bruins Now Have A Goalie ‘Situation’ Due To Injuries

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

Tuukka Rask is hurting. Anton Khudobin, who woke up Monday feeling fine, is also injured. Every hockey season has its challenges, and only five games into 2016-17, the Bruins have a doozy.

By the time the Bruins finished their morning workout in Brighton, rookie Malcom Subban was the lone goalie standing, and he could be in net Tuesday night at the Garden to face the Wild for his second career start.

All in all, the “A” plan is on hold, the “B” plan is challenged, and the “C” plan (“Crisis?!”) is somewhere between “day-to-day’’ and batten down the hatches.

“We are in a situation here, we’ll see what happens,’’ said coach Claude Julien, unable or unwilling to share much about his goalie woes. “If [Subban] is going in goal, he’ll go in goal, as simple as that.’’

Howe On Orr

Tom Fitzgerald of the Boston Globe,

(This story first appeared in the Globe on Oct. 20, 1966)

The National Hockey League’s oldest star paid tribute to the game’s newest star Wednesday evening after the Bruins’ 6-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

“He’ll do, for sure,” was the at first reluctant appraisal Detroit’s 38-year-old Gordie Howe made of Boston’s rookie defenseman Bobby Orr.

Starting a record 21st campaign in the league, Howe is hampered by an injured knee which was in a cast during the training season.

Gordie stripped the remains of adhesive from the knee area as he contemplated the Orr performance, and what was more important to him, his own team’s loss.

“The kid’s all right,” the old boy said. “He anticipates well, he makes good passes, and I guess he does just about what you’d expect of a good defenseman.”

Can The Boston Bruins Play Fast?

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

When the puck drops on their new season Thursday night, the Bruins hope they’ll be a different, speedier, quicker-thinking, faster-playmaking version of themselves.

The new Black-and-Gold mantra is speed, not only to be faster afoot, but Mercury-like in thought and deed.

“Everybody wants that. It’s just a new game,’’ said team captain Zdeno Chara, now with some 1,400 games of NHL experience and perspective on his résumé. “It’s a new NHL.’’

“I want us to be a real good, smart team this year,’’ noted coach Claude Julien, a point he emphasized to his staff and players alike from the very start of training camp. “Our goal is to play fast. Every coach in the league will tell you that’s where it is now.’’

Video- Anton Khudobin’s Mask Changes Colors Depending On The Temperature

from Kevin Dilon of MassLive,

Khudobin got a new mask, and this one is much cooler. Khudobin's new mask changes color when it changes temperature.

The mask uses "subzero" paint, which shifts color with hot and cold water. It also features a glossy bear on the side, with the Bruins' spoked B in the middle of his nickname, "Dobby" on the front.
