GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Bruins' coaching staff may be facing the world's biggest ice-cream headache in April if Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask continue on their current pace.
As in: Which goalie will get the call in the playoffs?
But Claude Julien isn't worried.
I cant say enough about what a comfortable situation it is with the second half of the regular-season schedule getting heavy and a lot of travel involved, said Julien. Its great to have two goaltenders involved and keep the other guy fresh. Itll be a big advantage down the road, because down the road there are going to be times when were going to be a tired team.
Youre going to have to rely on somebody fresh to keep you in the game, and that becomes your goaltender. As long as they keep playing the way they are, were going to be in a really good situation.
