BRUINS notebook

Chad Johnson has been a solid backup plan

Not only does Chad Johnson get a lot of days between games these days, the Bruins backup goaltender also gets a lot of time between shots, it seems.

While Carolina picked up its play in the third period Saturday, the Hurricanes struggled through the first 40 minutes, in which they managed just 10 shots on net. They were so impotent in the second half of the first period and first half of the second that Johnson didn’t see a shot for more than 22 minutes.
