Former Nanook Johnson racks another NHL win

Posted by DOYLE WOODY, adn.com on February 8, 2014 

Former UAF goaltender Chad Johnson bagged another win for the Boston Bruins today in the last day of NHL play before the Olympic break.

Johnson stopped 26 shots in a 7-2 home-ice win over Ottawa to improve to 11-3-0 with a 2.13 goals-against average and .924 save percentage.

Today's victory marks Johnson's fifth straight win.

Johnson this season has already played more than 900 minutes, not bad for a guy who hadn't even played 600 minutes in his NHL career before this season, when he became Tuukka Rask's back-up. 

Johnson's previous NHL gigs were with Phoenix and the New York Rangers.
