When Tim Thomas got hurt, the Boston Bruins had a huge problem when it came to goaltenders. No, they had a perfectly capable backup to replace Thomas -- Tukka Rask -- who has overcome the fact that the he is a caveperson. The real problem for the the Bruins; who was going to sit in the hallway between the rink and the entrance to the locker room?
Today, the Bruins have found an eager replacement in Phoenix Coyotes' netminder Alex Auld who will now guard the hallway. For Auld this will come as a relief since he encountered some problems in the Phoenix hallways. "It was crowded everywhere I turned," Auld said. The good news for Auld now is that the hallways in Boston will be mostly empty, as the Bruins are averaging about 14,700 fans per game.
Oh, the humanity. The thought of crowded locker room hallways makes me want to gag.
