If you missed it, I posted notes from attending most of Tuesday’s 2 practice sessions including the short version of a pretty funny Alexander Semin/Anton Khudobin show. You can find that HERE. At the start of training camp, I posed 10 questions for the first week of training camp leading up to the first preseason game which is Wednesday night at PNC Arena versus Columbus.

Chad Johnson, Niklas Svedberg Battling for Backup Spot Behind Tuukka Rask (Video)

Goaltender Anton Khudobin proved to be more than competent as the Bruins’ No. 2 last season, going 9-4-1 with a 2.32 goals against average in 14 starts. But now, with Khudobin moving on to back up Cam Ward in Carolina, the Bruins are tasked with finding a new understudy to Tuukka Rask.
