Turco replaces Thomas after 1st

Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas, playing in his fifth straight game, was pulled after one period of play, with the Bruins trailing 3-0, and replaced by Marty Turco. Thomas made seven saves on 10 shots.

Turco played the rest of the game in his Bruins debut, making 20 saves on 22 shots in a 5-2 loss.

"Every minute I felt a little bit better, a little bit more comfortable," Turco told reporters in Pittsburgh. "But you wish you'd made a couple more saves."

"I thought he did a great job, he certainly gave us a chance when he was in net," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "He was a competitor, he was giving guys life on the ice and was excited to be back and playing."
