Thanks Malt.

Trotman is listed in the line-up. Any observations you have on him will be appreciated.

Really? I thought he looked ready for bear, including slamming some Monarch into the Bruins bench.

Whale go up 1-0 on a slapshot with Khudobin screened. PBees having trpuble containing Newbury and Deveaux in their own zone.

Owens vs. McKelvie...Owens lands a few before McKelvie wrestles him to the ground.

Warsofsky takes a hit in the corner and is on the ice bleeding a bit...MacDermid tries to go after a Whaler player but is held back the officials. How about you just let them go instead of delaying the inevitable, for god's sake.
Gorskic said Warsofsky was elbowed in the head.. Hope he's ok!!

Providence is up 2-1 near the end of the second period.

Cunningham and MacDonald have the goals and Hennessy has 2 assists.

Khudobin has stoppped 25 of 26 shots.

It's why they re-signed him and gave him a 1-way next season.

Just crushing for him that he was hurt when Rask went down...that would've been his chance to demonstrate his value to Boston.

Oh, well-- may have to start up my Khudobin Twitter parodies again.

I don't know. Doubt it. He needs to keep playing...they went ahead and signed Turco, so I doubt they rock the boat like that.

Dobby's chance this season passed him by because he was hurt. A shame, but unless something happens to 1 of Thomas or Turco, my guess is that they keep him in Providence.

Why bring him up unless they're serious about starting him? Between Thomas and Turco, betting that the Bruins are rolling dice on the superior NHL experience.

You guys...crack me up sometimes. Everyone always wants the shiny toy and they want it RIGHT NOW. He's played 2 games since missing a month with a bad wrist-- let's give him time to get him back in the groove. It's been two games and I don't know-- let him play out the string in the AHL. Maybe give him one start as a reward and send him down, but don't see much value in bringing Khudobin up only to sit him while TT plays most if not all of the critical games down the stretch.

I agree that he needs to get back to game sharpness, but from what we've seen so far.....he hasn't missed a beat. Which leads to the next question......do you really think Marty Turco is the better goalie at this point?

The fact hasn't changed that TT still needs to be spelled down the stretch and yet the team can't afford automatic losses. Which Turco is at this point. If Anton can't provide something better than Marty Turco, he shouldn't be under contract.

No, I don't think Turco is better, but he IS more experienced and that plays into thinking when the decision comes to call up Khudobin or just leave him where he is.

But again- what is the real benefit of having Khudobin up to backup Thomas? If Thomas starts and gets pulled, the team's probably in a hole. How does that help Khudobin? If the Bruins actually plan on giving Khudobin starts, that's one thing. But if they don't...and that's the point. He's better off playing, not sitting there with the ballcap on his head watching Thomas.

The question was: do the Bruins call up Khudobin for TUESDAY? I answered why I don't think that's the case.

Of course-- if Turco starts tomorrow vs. Anaheim and stinks out the joint, maybe the Bruins do make a move. But with just two games in what if he re-injures the wrist? Best way to determine if Dobby is ready to be a playoff backup is to test him by playing as much as you can. You think playing 1 or 2 of next 9 games does that?

I am thinking that it wouldn't hurt to try to gey Khudobin into a couple of NHL games prior to the playoffs in case he is needed at some point. Might not be great to have his first NHL game, a playoff game, as Turco is ineligible. I don't think all of our games are that critical right now after the win tonight (hopefully). Maybe they could move him up and down a couple of times to get him into games as most ot the PB's games are weekend.

Anyways, just my thought process as Thomas could use a rest from our vicious March schedule.

Good to see you call on Trotman with a goal tonight. I think the PB's really needed an boost and the two new arrivals seem to be helping.

If you believe in omens, then Torey Krug is next. The third Michigander to join Providence in as many days-- the first two (Florek, Trotman) found the back of the net. Is Krug to follow?

I will be watching closely. These guys could make it a more interesting finish for the Baby B's. It comes in three's, right.

This was absolutely the case. I thought he had a pretty good game. Saw him once earlier this season and he was an OMG train wreck so the improvement was great to see.

I didn't think last night he was pressing things TOO much, which is the key. He was taking what opportunities were available, which is exactly what you want to see.

I want him to make it for one reason only ... cool nickname possibility. I am hereby dubbing him "Colonel" Trotman.

Arniel's line starts the game...Hutch is in goal, so we'll see how this goes...

Providence on the PP early in the game...Providence is ranked next to last in the AHL on the PP.

Florek has had a couple of potential chances to get pucks to the net, but he didn't have the jets to blow by the D.

0-0 late in the first. Ridderwall has had some nice rushes, he was a smart free agent signing.

The line of Sauve-Hennessey-Tremblay had some great chances, but no dice.

Button to the box for roughing up one of the Pirates.

0-0 end of first.

Pirates up 1-0 early in the second. Puck went five-hole on Hutch.

Providence has only 8 total shots on net late (we're late in the second...) Maybe time to shake some lines up...a lot of guys look tired out there. They need to stay off the PK---they're in the middle of killing their 6th penalty through two periods now.

Apparently there was a fight with Robins and Brodeur when I stepped away from the computer...

McArtle vs. Robins....boring wrestling match.

Tremblay scores! 1-1 in the third.

Warsofsky gets hooked in the OT and Providence will have a man advanatge late in the OT.

We're in the shootout...both goalies getting school so far...

Providence takes it in a shootout!

So glad to see Sauve on the scoresheet. I was afraid that hip injury he'd suffered was serious.

Nice win for the P-Bs!

I went to the game today and decided to focus on Zach Trotman. I had noticed him at rookie camp and liked him there. So, here's my non-professional report:

Overall: I thought he was solid. He didn't get a ton of playing time, but when he did, he looked poised and seems to have the tendency to make the smart, simple play.

Minor Details: He didn't get his first shift (unless I missed it) until 8 minutes in. There were PPs and PKs on both sides so I figured maybe he wasn't going to see any special team's time, but that proved to be wrong later as he got decent PP time, including the 4-3 PP in overtime.

Some good things I noticed: he gets the puck to the net, seems to know when to pinch and when not to. Made some good, solid (and safe) passes in transition. He doesn't seem to get rattled either. In OT he fumbled with the puck a bit but recovered quickly. In the first period he lost his footing in his own zone and under some pressure, managed to stay with the puck and clear it.

Overall, nothing spectacular but that's okay in my mind. Solid effort...looking forward to seeing how his career develops. Definitely rooting for the kid!
