Linus Ullmark’s dominance between the pipes all season has the Bruins’ fanbase fired up but it was a play on Saturday that sent his teammates into a frenzy.
The 6-foot-4 Swede became the first Bruins goaltender in franchise history to score a goal. With 47 seconds left in the third period, Ullmark launched the puck the length of the ice and into an empty net to cap off a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks.
For that reason, we have named Ullmark our VA Hero of the Week, presented by VA Healthcare.
