G - BOS
Jaroslav Halak turned aside 29 of 30 shots in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Hurricanes in Game 3.
Halak was called into service when Tuukka Rask unexpectedly announced that he has opted out of the remainder of the playoffs. The 35-year-old net minder has proved more than capable during the regular season, compiling an 18-6-6 record with a 2.39 GAA and .919 SV% in 31 games before the NHL season paused. He most likely will start every game for the remainder of the playoffs.
Jaroslav Halak allowed one goal on 30 shots as the Bruins topped the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 Thursday night.
Halak is likely to start the Bruins two remaining games prior to the All-Star break with Tuukka Rask on IR, so pick him up where available. He's 11-5-6 on the season with a 2.42 GAA this season.
Jaroslav Halak allowed five goals on 39 shots as the Bruins fell in a shootout on the road in Philadelphia Monday night.
Halak had staked the Bruins to a 5-2 lead, but was a key factor in it being squandered. Bruins shootout woes aside, Halak has been a more-than-serviceable backup goalie for fantasy managers and the Bruins alike this season, and could be a big difference maker come playoff time.
Jaroslav Halak allowed four goals on 29 shots and allowed the overtime game winner to Ryan Ellis as the Bruins fell 4-3 in overtime Saturday night.
The Bruins latest skid —eight losses in nine games —hasn't been predicated on poor goaltending alone, but it hasn't helped. The backup Halak has just one win in four starts since December 7th.
Jaroslav Halak allowed 3 goals on 25 shots as the Bruins dropped their fourth straight game in a 3-2 loss at the Washington Capitals Wednesday night.
Halak has dropped his last two starts. He remains a solid backup goaltender option in all formats despite the recent blip.
