Former Nanook Johnson picks up win for NHL Boston in his season debut

Doyle Woody,Adn Staff

Just a heads-up that former UAF Nanooks goaltender Chad Johnson made his team debut for the Boston Bruins tonight and picked up the win in a 4-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres.

Johnson, 27, who previously appeared in the NHL with the New York Rangers and Phoenix Coyotes, made his first start this far into the season because he's the backup to workhorse Tuukka Rask (5-2-0, 1.29, .954). Johnson stopped 14 of 16 shots.

Johnson lifetime in 11 NHL appearances is 4-2-3 with a 1.98 goals-against average, .926 save percentage and one shutout.
