Alex Auld to Take Over Bruins' Hallway Duties


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.


  1. I'm just a caveman. I fell on some ice and later got thawed out by some of your scientists. Your world frightens and confuses me! Sometimes the honking horns of your traffic make me want to get out of my BMW.. and run off into the hills, or wherever.. Sometimes when I get a message on my fax machine, I wonder: "Did little demons get inside and type it?" And sometimes I wonder, if I can use Auld for firewood.

  2. @bc: +.5, but only becasue I don't know if Alex Auld is that flammable. I think lighting him on fire would be like if you lit a donut on fire--plus it would smell really bad
