Gameday, Wild @ Bruins at 6:00 CST, Theo Will Start (Wild Win 3-1)
It's official, José will start tonight in Boston. From twitter:
Miettinen out, Theo starts, Backstrom not 100 percent, Scandella in, Spurgeon out. No surprises in other words.
After one period the game was scoreless. José faced 13 SOG. He was really sharp that period!
After the 2nd period it's tied 1-1. It's actually a very good game. Both goalies (José and Rask) are playing really good games. Tuukka robbed Havlat on a sure thing. Darn! I guess I was off in my SOG after the 1st...I've edited it to show 13 SOG in the 1st and now 10 more in the 2nd. Total SOG faced right now is 23 for José. And some really nice saves in there.
That screen shot was from partway throught the 3rd, because he actually ended up saving 35 of 36 SOG!! Stupendous game for our goalie stud!!!
Fingers crossed for a FSN interview after a bit...
Oh, and by the way, the Wild played a really good game all around tonight. Great defense in front of José. Created a lot of turnovers. I think I would consider it the best game I've seen them play this season. Very exciting all around.
