Lightning starting Peter Budaj versus Boston

Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Peter Budaj will start on Thursday night against the Boston Bruins.

What It Means:

Budaj has gone 1-1 with a .897 save percentage and 2.76 goals-against average in two starts since being traded from the Los Angeles Kings. The Bruins are 12th in the NHL in scoring (2.84 goals per game).

Budaj is projected to allow 2.6 goals and make 25.8 saves while having only a 36.0 percent chance of earning the win, according to numberFire's models. He's our 17th-rated fantasy goalie out of the 24 starters in action.
