Bruins reportedly going with Khudobin in goal against Lightning

The Boston Bruins appear to be giving Anton Khudobin the start in goal today against the Tampa Bay Lightning, although, as Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports, that information came from the goalies – not the coach.

We’re playing a lot of games, 17 games in 30 days, so I’m going to play more than I played last month, for sure,” Khudobin told the Boston Herald.

“We’ve got four back-to-backs (in March), so I hope I’m going to get at least four or five games. If I get more and more and more games, I’ll be happy. If not, I just have to be ready for the games that the coach gives me.”

The Bruins – and likely Khudobin – go up against a Tampa Bay Lightning team that has three wins in its last 10 games.

The Lightning do feature Steve Stamkos, who leads the league in points (31) and goals (14). He was also named the NHL’s first star for the month of February.

The Bruins might worry about containing Stamkos, but at the top of their list should be the power play on home ice.

There has been no power play on home ice for the Bruins.

Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reported that the Bruins still do not have a power play goal at TD Garden.

“[Not having a power play goal at home] is actually something I hadn’t even heard about. But we’re not going to put any emphasis on it because that will just make things worse. We know that we need to be better,” the Bruins’ Patrice Bergeron told CSNNE.com.
