Boston Bruins Pick Opening Night Starter

The Boston Bruins are expected to start Linus Ullmark in goal for their season opener against the Washington Capitals.

The Bruins are heading into this season with a solid one-two punch between Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman. Due to the fact that they are at similar playing levels, they will likely be sharing the net equally this year, but for game one of the new season, Ullmark is their guy.

Ullmark is looking to build off of a strong first season as a Bruin. In 49 games last year with Boston, he had a 26-10-2 record, 2.45 GAA, and .917 SV%. Let's see how he performs for the team as they take on Washington.
