Tim Thomas First Off Ice at Bruins’ Morning Skate

It looks as if Tim Thomas will get a chance for back-to-back shutouts on Wednesday night, as he was the first goaltender to leave the ice at the Bruins' morning skate, according to Boston.com.

Thomas stopped all 29 shots he faced on Monday night in Ottawa, and evidently Claude Julien is sticking with his top goalie. Thomas had lost his previous four starts, including one in overtime and one in a shootout.

In the Bruins' only meeting with the Thrashers this year, Tuukka Rask stopped 32 of 35 shots before stonewalling all three Atlanta skaters in a shootout as the Bruins won 4-3.
