Heading into last season, the Bruins had Tuukka Rask’s “will he or won’t he?” question looming over the crease for the early part of the season.
Throw in a rookie goalie in Jeremy Swayman and a free agent signing in Linus Ullmark, and the Bruins’ crease was as uncertain as it had been in more than a decade.
However, concerns about the B’s goaltending turned out to be largely unwarranted: Rask sadly retired, but the other two guys performed pretty well overall.
To refresh your memory:
- 95 goals against
- .917 save percentage
- 2.45 GAA
- 10.8 goals saved above average
- 96 goals against
- .914 save percentage
- 2.41 GAA
- 7.3 goals saved above average
For the sake of sparing us all the discourse, I left Rask out of this year’s rankings. You can thank me later.
