“[I’m] still realizing and know for a fact work’s exciting for me, and what a great opportunity for our club to get back on the winning page,” Turco said.  “Not just  go out there and give a token game, but play at a high level to win. That’s what I expect of myself.”

“For me to give them a chance and that’s why I’m here – to give Tim some rest.

Tonight, goaltender Tim Thomas will have his first night off since starting the last five games, and eight of the last nine.

The Bruins, who are 4-5-1 in their last 10 games, look to get back on the right track tonight after losing back-to-back games against the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins.

After the practice and Sunday’s appearance, where he made 20 of 22 saves in two periods,  Turco said he feels ready.

“I’ve put the work in and feel as ready as I can, knowing everyday I felt better and better, getting used to the shots and the timing a bit,” Turco said. “Tonight will be a huge step for me.”
