PETER BUDAJ NEWS

What They Said: Pens Vs. Habs

Holy sh*t that was fun. Duper shoots to score early.  Hornqvist gets demoted and gets on the board.  Flower was solid again, even after getting his eye dotted.  Sid was “back” and was plucky and won it in the shoot out. 3 on 3 is so much butt-clenching fun.  Just so tense the entire five minutes.  Too bad the power play almost screwed that up. The Pens come from behind...

Here’s a strange Tweet from Peter Budaj

We haven’t talked about Peter Budaj in a while, but the goaltender put out a Tweet we couldn’t help but cover. While Budaj has been competing with the Ontario Reign of the AHL, he’s apparently been talking to other women while his wife was pregnant … or something. Is he being serious or making a joke? Either way, this is kind of bizarre. The post Here’s a strange Tweet...

Jets Waive Goaltender Peter Budaj One Day After Trading For Him

When Budaj was acquired, it was thought he would be the backup behind starter Ondrej Pavelec. Michael Hutchinson, the projected backup, struggled throughout the preseason and also only has three games of...

Rangers win both games in Montreal, head to New York with 2-0 series lead

The Canadiens have a goaltending problem, but his name isn’t Dustin Tokarski, Peter Budaj, nor Carey Price, it’s Henrik Lundqvist. The Habs had 41 shots and The King turned aside all but one, which was a flukey bounce in favor of Max Pacioretty. Throw the “Lundqvist sucks in Montreal” narrative out the window; he allowed only three goals in two games at the Bell Centre. It...

Tokarski gets the start for the Habs (Video vs. Rangers)

Dustin Tokarski will get the start for the Canadiens in game two in the absence of Carey Price. The rationale for Tokarski over Peter Budaj seems to be “he’s a winner”; even though he hasn’t been able to stay on an NHL roster during his five years as a pro. Tokarski has actually faced the Rangers before, way back in 2010 when he was a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning. He...

Do The Rangers Actually Struggle Against Backup Goaltenders?

We have all heard the sarcastic sentiment before, and probably said it ourselves from time to time. Any time a time a backup goaltender is brought out to face the Rangers, it’s “time to make him look like a Vezina Winner.” Or just in general, people question why the Rangers make “every backup look like Dominik Hasek.” With Carey Price stunningly out for the rest of the...
