Jaroslav Halak will defend the Montreal net.
Montreal Canadiens' head coach Guy Carbonneau announced today that young rookie Jaroslav Halak will get the start against the Boston Bruins tomorrow. After the repeated mediocre performances by my ''friend'' David Aebisher, coach Carbonneau has no choice but to give the net to the young slovak goaltender. A very reasonnable decision if you ask me.
In his 8 starts in career, Halak has a 4-4 record, a goal against average of 3.44 and a .886% efficiency ratio. This goaltender reminds me of Tomas Vokoun who began his career in Montreal a few years ago. Will the Habs sink the Bruins for good this week?
Part 1 of the answer is coming tomorrow evening at the Bell centre.
