Marty Turco, Bruins goaltender
After Tuukka Rask suffered a groin injury last March, the Bruins signed former Chicago and Dallas goalie Marty Turco to a one-year contract to help give starting goalie Tim Thomas some much-needed rest.
The 10-year veteran hadn’t played NHL hockey in a year when the Bruins signed him, and Turco was routed in his first game with the B’s—a 6-1 loss to the Lightning in Tampa.
Turco finished the season 2-2-0, with 3.68 goals-against average in five games. In the 36-year-old goaltender’s final game, he saved 22 shots en route to a 5-3 loss to the Penguins. He was not eligible to play in the postseason because he signed after the trade deadline.
