Tim Thomas, Tuukka Rask Differ in Goaltending Styles, But Bruins’ System Helps Make Them Interchangeable


Claude Julien has two incredibly capable goaltenders at his disposal in Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask. And while it may be difficult at times to juggle their playing time, the decision must be made easier by the simple fact that the B's are in a great position to win regardless of who's between the pipes.

A lot of that, though, stems from the Bruins' defensive system that helps make Thomas and Rask even better. And while the two goalies may differ in their approaches to goaltending, their effectiveness is only improved by the fact that everyone buys into the system.
