On a snowy day here in Boston, we continue to await what the lineup will look like between the Bruins and Islanders. Both teams seem to have had an optional skate this morning, with the Isles doing a more formal skate yesterday afternoon at TD Garden. Regardless, both head coaches stated the goalie matchup!
Tuukka Rask starts in goal tonight, per Bruce Cassidy. #NHLBruins— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) December 9, 2017
These choices do make sense, as both Rask and Halak have had recent success and look to continue to take the reigns away from backups who have had very good showings of their own.
