Nightly Scrap: Not exactly a goalie dual in Pittsburgh

Thursday, November 11, 2010

When you looked at the two starting goalies when the Pittsburgh Penguins hosted the Boston Bruins, it became an automatic goalie dual.  Brent Johnson entered the game with a 6-1-1 record and 1.62 GAA while Tim Thomas entered with a  7-0-0 record and 1.04 GAA– impressive to say the least.
