Tim Thomas was impenetrable after the Flyers tallied two early goals in Philadelphia on Monday night as the Bruins' backstop made a career-high 52 saves in the 3-2 overtime victory in Game 2.
Thomas made 22 saves in the third period and an additional 10 stops in overtime, standing on his head at times to keep the Flyers off the board. The Flyers threatened to break through several times late in the game, but Thomas held his ground to prevent the Philadelphia win.
The Bruins offense delivered with 5:59 remaining in the first overtime period, as David Krejci netted his fourth postseason goal and his second game-winner of the series against Philadelphia. Though Krejci's goal was originally called off, the referees overturned the call upon further review, giving the B's the 2-0 series lead heading back to Boston.
"The referee waved his hands like it was no goal, it didn't take us long to figure out that it had been in," head coach Claude Julien said. "We felt pretty confident, it was nice to see us find a way to win."
