It's tough to imagine, but Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, a Vezina Trophy winner, may have been a bit of an afterthought heading into the 2010-11 season. After two starts, though, it's time to start paying attention again.
Thomas followed up a shutout in his first start on Oct. 10 with another stellar performance Saturday night in New Jersey in a 4-1 win for the Bruins over the Devils. For those ready to anoint Tuukka Rask the permanent starter, Thomas is making it clear he won't go down without a fight.
While balancing two goalies can be difficult for a coaching staff, Hall of Famer Brian Leetch stressed on Sunday's NESN Daily that it is a good problem to have.
To hear what Leetch had to say about the strong start in the goaltending departmenet as well as what Tyler Seguin has meant in regards to Michael Ryder's strong start, check out the video below.
