Shots on Goal: Boston Bruins Scrimmage

Shots on Goal: Boston Bruins Scrimmage

[imagebrowser id=88]

After two days of practice the Boston Bruins held an inter-squad scrimmage against their AHL affiliate Providence Bruins at the Boston Garden last night. Admission and parking were free and season ticket holders were working the penalty box doors and serving as goal judges.

Although the game had no meaning it was used as measuring stick  just to see how the Bruins would react under game conditions against a team that has been playing together as unit since October.

Tuukka Rask, back from a two month stint in the Czech Republic playing for HC Plzen was in net for the Bruins while Anton Khudobin, who played with Moscow Atlant in the KHL during the NHL lockout, backstopped the baby B’s.

A total of twelve goals was let in by both netminders with Providence taking the contest 7-5 over Boston. Both goalies were looking shaky at times letting in some soft goals. Rask seemed to have some trouble tracking the puck through traffic while Khudobin blew a third period 5-2 lead.

All cannot be blamed on the guys in net as the defense in front of them was also trying to find their legs during this abbreviated training camp.

One can only assume all teams in the league are having the same issues.

This game didn’t count but the one on Saturday against the New York Rangers does.
