I take that back. He's a Bruin!!! Alex Auld, still wairing his Coyotes mask and pads, took on a streaking Maple Leafs team in Toronto and beat them. No longer is he a Coyote. Alex Auld recorded 25 saves, and with an injured Bruins defense in front of him (they nevertheless played extremely well) is currently 1-0-0.
In the first period, Toronto struck first when a drive by Jason Blake wnet through Auld. The Bruins immediately answered two minutes later on the power play. Chuck Kobasew (who leads the team in goals) scored it when his snap shot went through Toskala. The Bruins won the game in the second period when Denis Wideman's very very very long drive went into the net.
The rest of the game was all very exciting play from the Bruins. Surprisingly good was the Bruins penalty kill. Statistically one of the worst in the league, the Bruins penalty kill came up big with two late stops of the Leafs power play unit. The only bad thing to come out of this game was that Marc Savard's 12 game point streak ended.
The Bruins are in Buffalo tonight to take on the Sabres. Those still on the injury list inlcude: Thornton, Allen, Ference, Thomas, Fernandez, Sobotka, and Bergeron. Ference might play as soon as Wednesday, and Thornton & Sobotka are skating and are likely to come back soon.
