Lightning Goaltender Roloson To Start Game 6
Lightning confident heading to Game 6 vs. Bruins
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – The Tampa Bay Lightning are once again
hitching their hopes of blocking Boston's path to the Stanley Cup
finals on goaltender Dwayne Roloson.
Down 3-2 to the Bruins in the Eastern Conference finals, coach
Guy Boucher says the 41-year-old Roloson is “the guy that took us
here,” so he'll be in net for Game 6 when the Lightning try to
even the best-of-seven series on Wednesday night.
The Bruins are one victory away from their first Stanley Cup
appearance in 21 years after beating Roloson's backup, Mike Smith,
in Game 5.
Boucher opted to give Smith his first career playoff start after
pulling Roloson from two of the previous three games against the
Bruins, saying he felt the veteran needed a “breather.”
